Nutrition and a Healthy Lifestyle
Whether you want to drop a few pounds or elevate your personal condition with healthier lifestyle choices, our Registered Dietitians at Shenandoah Medical Center can offer you expertise, resources and support.
Our Registered Dietitians and support team work with acute care patients found to be at nutritional risk. All acute and skilled patients are assessed by the Dietitian in a timely fashion. Care is coordinated with the health care team and all patients are regularly followed up on 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 up an appointment time for a nutrition consultation. Outpatients check-in at the SMC Clinic.
One-on-one consultations with a Dietitian provide you with access to education resources and personal consultation in several key areas:
- Weight management
- Pre-diabetes or diabetes prevention
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Food allergies or intolerances
- Decrease in appetite
- Wellness counseling
- Tube feedings
