Improving Health and Wellness through Proper Nutrition

You are what you eat.  Healthy eating is the foundation for good health.  At Memorial Outpatient Dietitian Clinic, we strive to keep our community healthy through a holistic approach, which includes proper nutrition. 

Patients can get an appointment at the Memorial Outpatient Dietitian Clinic through a referral from their Primary Care Provider or another physician.  Patients may also make an appointment through self-referral, where they may self-pay if the visit is not covered by insurance.
