What can I expect during my visit(s)?

What is a registered dietitian nutritionist?  

Registered dietitian nutritionists are food and nutrition experts who translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. They are trained in the use of nutrition to prevent and control disease. Look for the initials RD or RDN after your nutritionist’s name. These credentials indicate that the practitioner has completed an accredited four-year educational program and 1,200 hours of supervised practice, and passed a national exam. It also means they stay up-to-date by completing continuing professional education requirements.
