During your visit, our outpatient dietitian will make an evaluation through discussion of your current food consumption, medical background, lifestyle, family and work as well as taking some physical measurements. Relevant dietary education, including handouts, will be provided and goals will be defined. The dietitian, you and your primary care physician (if appropriate) will collaborate to create an individualized treatment plan. A letter to your referring health professional will also be sent when requested.
During your review appointment, your progress and any difficulties you may be having implementing your goals are discussed. Questions you have will be answered, and further education may take place – this could be regarding a new topic or expanding on an existing issue. Practical advice and encouragement are always available for your support, with new goals set as necessary to keep you motivated.
A written doctor's referral is required.
