  • Difficulties with eating/feeding/growing
  • Eating disorders (anorexia and bulimia)**
  • Failure to thrive
  • Food allergies or intolerances
  • Heart-healthy nutrition/high cholesterol

  • Tube feedings
  • Vegetarian diets
  • Weight management/obesity – Please wait by the front desk in the waiting area of the Rose Pavilion, and you will be escorted to the class.

** A special note for patient’s being referred for eating disorders: We are not able to manage these patient’s on a weekly basis. Therefore, we request that the patients be seen by a physician or other care manager weekly in addition to a nutrition clinic referral. We schedule these patients every six weeks.

Talk to your physician about a referral to our Clinic. When nutrition is part of your child’s medical management, it may be covered by your insurance. Please have your referring physician complete the Nutrition Clinic Referral Form and send the appropriate paperwork with it.
