We understand the challenges of healthy eating. We will work with you to help with your food preferences and health needs. With our nutrition counseling team’s guidance, you will learn to make healthy choices and develop a strategy that fits your lifestyle.
Our Approach to Nutrition Counseling
One of our registered dietitians will provide you with a nutrition assessment, guide you through meal planning and meet with you through a series of one-on-one sessions to help you achieve your optimal health and wellbeing.
A physician’s prescription is required, and in some cases a referral may be required for one-on-one counseling. Before making an appointment for nutrition services, check your insurance to see if it’s covered. If your insurance does not cover nutrition services, a fee-for-service will apply.

- Diabetes, pre-diabetes or gestational diabetes

- Malnutrition or unplanned weight loss
