Nutrition Counseling Services

Community Nutrition Counseling Services/Treatment

Preventive nutrition is aimed at individuals who are in good health - and want to stay healthy. Therapeutic diets are usually ordered for individuals directly under a physician's care, such as a patient in a hospital or someone recovering from surgery or illness. When special diets are ordered by a physician, a Registered Dietitian can help answer concerns and questions regarding ingredients, amounts and preparation.

Some areas of expertise include:

  • Allergies and food intolerances
  • Bariatric surgery
  • Childhood and adolescent nutrition
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Nutrition support
  • Heart disease (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high triglycerides)
  • Pregnancy and lactation
  • Specialty nutrition for cancer, kidney disease and liver disease
  • Sports nutrition
  • Weight management
  • End of Life Care
  • Diabetics

Generally, initial consultations are scheduled for one hour, with follow-up sessions scheduled as needed. A fee is charged for nutritional counseling. To determine insurance coverage each individual should check with his/her insurance company. Fees vary depending on the length of services provided. A referral order from the physician is recommended, but not mandatory.

To schedule an appointment with a Registered Dietitian, please call 307-688-3615.
