Pediatricians, gastroenterologists, endocrinolgists, and allergists need support from a dietitian, but often don’t have it. Nutritional issues like picky eating, food allergies, failure to thrive, and weight management often require more intensive counseling so a dietitian is a necessity. I can see your patients and provide the nutritional counseling they need.
Each patient that you refer must the following for my counseling:
1.) 7 day food record
2.) List of all their questions and concerns
3.) A copy of the growth charts from your office.
Once I have that data, I meet your patient for an hour and then keep the family for a month of follow-up services and support. I will always send you a letter for the medical chart detailing what I recommended.
