What to expect during your appointment

One of our registered dietitians will review your past medical history, weight, BMI (body mass index), pertinent labs and medications, as well as vitamin and mineral and herbal supplements you might take. Also, our team will review your eating habits and your physical activity levels. Together, we will help you establish a plan by setting nutrition-related goals to help make positive changes in your eating behaviors.
