What is a Registered Dietitian?

A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a health professional with specialized training in nutrition and wellness. RD’s must complete an education program in the field of nutrition, complete an internship, and pass a national exam. 

What can I Expect with MNT?

At your first visit, you can expect your dietitian to ask questions about your current diet and lifestyle and work with you to set short term and long term health goals. You will work together to develop a plan to meet those goals. At follow up visits, you will revisit those health goals and evaluate your progress. Your dietitian will help you work through any challenges you are having throughout the process. 

MNT is a multi-appointment adaptable process that builds on itself as you progress through visits. MNT with an RDs goal is to help the patient learn, build self-efficacy, make positive nutrition and behavior changes, and reach goals.

Please note: Dietitians do not order lab tests or prescribe medications please speak with your PCP for these concerns.
