Our team of highly skilled pediatric dietitians evaluate and treat children with a variety of diagnoses in outpatient, inpatient and day treatment programs. Some of these programs/clinics include diabetes, feeding, GI, pulmonary, Weigh Smart® and individual consultations by referral.

Outpatient Services

Your visit will consist of a session with a licensed dietitian who will evaluate your child's nutritional status based on their medical history, body measurements, lab data and eating habits. With input provided by the child and the child's family, goals are set to carry out the nutrition prescription for improved health. Followup sessions are strongly encouraged to monitor the progression of the set goals and re-evaluate nutrition status as the child grows.
