We believe that sound nutrition habits are part of a healthy lifestyle. The focus of nutrition counseling is to educate patients about their unique nutritional needs, to design and maintain a nutritionally balanced diet, and to plan meals for successful and healthy weight loss.

Nutritionists work with patients to monitor and assess food choices, identify ‘trigger’ foods, and facilitate the adoption of a heart-healthy diet.
