Outpatient Clinical Nutrition

Our registered dietitians (RDs) are nationally credentialed and specially trained to provide medical nutrition therapy for patients of all ages and backgrounds. Nutrition therapy involves the assessment of patient’s medical and nutritional history and discussion of typical intake to develop an individualized care plan to support patient goals. 

Outpatient nutrition therapy helps to manage a variety of nutrition-related concerns and medical conditions including but not limited to:

  • Diabetes
  • Dysphagia
  • Malnutrition/Failure to Thrive
  • Food Allergies
  • Irritable bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Hypertension
  • Kidney Disease
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders
  • Weight Management/Obesity
  • Feeding Problems
  • Nutrition Support (tube feeding or TPN)

Our registered dietitians provide nutrition education and goal setting to teach skills to patients, families, and caregivers. Consultation with your referring and primary care physician is integral to developing a comprehensive nutritional care plan. Referrals and communication with community agencies (home health agencies, WIC, etc.) is available to assure continuity of care.

What to Expect at Your Appointment

Our nutritionists will gather medical history and discuss your typical food intake to assess your current nutrition status. Once a complete history is acquired, the RD will educate you on specific dietary needs and work with you to strategize meal planning.
