Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
Good nutrition can positively impact our overall health and wellbeing.
It can be confusing to know what “good nutrition” is with all of the articles, books and product ads we see in the media today. Meeting with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) is one of the best ways to ensure you are receiving evidence based nutrition advice.
Your health care is in good hands.
We are qualified to meet your needs. Becoming an RDN requires a Bachelor’s degree with many nutrition focused courses, completing a supervised practice program and passing the credentialing exam. Our Dietitians are members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) as well as the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
Benefits of seeing a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist:
RDN’s are health professionals dedicated to improving patient health through means of nutrition. They provide scientific research-based education and counseling to help manage or prevent various diseases and conditions. Dietitians create easy to follow plans that are personally tailored to you and your health goals.
