Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is specialized nutrition counseling provided by a Registered Dietitian (RD). Studies show that MNT can significantly improve quality of life and enhance your health.
If you have a condition that could benefit from Medical Nutrition Therapy, our nutritionists will develop a comprehensive therapy plan based upon the results of your initial assessment. This complete assessment will include your medical history, eating habits, life style and nutrition status.
