Nutrition Counseling

Clinical dietitians at Providence are dedicated to teaching patients how to make nutritionally-sound food choices no matter their disease or condition. Whether to speed up your recovery process, help you prevent disease, or just maintain a healthy lifestyle, our registered dietitians can put you on the path to optimal health.

Our registered and licensed dietitians can help you whether your goal is to treat a health condition, lower your risk of disease, manage your weight or eat wisely while maintaining a busy lifestyle. Dietitians monitor, assess and diagnose nutrition problems and develop interventions to optimize your health based on your current medical condition.

Nutrition is important to your recovery and has been shown to promote positive health outcomes. 

Talk to your doctor or dietitian if you experience any of the following while recovering from an illness, surgery or while taking medication:

  • Unplanned weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Not able to eat or only able to eat small amounts
  • Feeling weak or tired
  • Swelling or fluid accumulation

Our registered dietitians work with you and your health care team to support you and your nutrition goals.

A private consultation starts with a nutrition assessment. We evaluate your activity, eating behavior, and medical and dietary histories to create a plan for you.

You will receive science-based, up-to-date, practical nutrition information. Working with the dietitian, you will set goals and decide on next steps.
