Nutrition and a Healthy Lifestyle

Whether you want to drop a few pounds or elevate your personal condition with healthier lifestyle choices, our clinical dietitian at Shenandoah Medical Center offers you expertise, resources and support.

Our registered dietitian and support team works with acute care patients found to be at nutritional risk. All skilled patients are assessed by the dietitian in a timely fashion. Care is coordinated with the health care team and regular follow up visits are conducted to monitor patient progress.

Outpatient visits are arranged through a doctor’s referral. Once the dietitian receives the referral, you will be contacted to set an appointment time for a nutrition consultation. Outpatients check-in at the SMC Clinic.
