|Our goal is to provide individualized nutrition therapy and diet guidelines, utilizing self-management skills, to achieve desirable nutrition outcomes.
The Nutrition Clinic is located on the second floor of Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital, near the Atrium elevators. Appointments are available during normal business hours Monday through Friday. Translation services are available.
We conveniently register our patients and bill their insurance company through the hospital's billing system. Most insurance companies cover our services. We also provide Medical Nutrition Therapy benefits for patients with Medicare. We welcome all patients through physician referrals.
We recommend that patients bring three days of food records to their initial nutrition visit including at least one weekend day. Click here for blank food records.
