Nutrition Counseling

Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is a therapeutic approach to treating medical conditions and their associated symptoms that uses individualized, evidence-based nutrition treatment plans. Each plan is individually customized to the patient and monitored by either a registered dietitian or a physician. Lifestyle and diet changes can be hard. Through one-on-one nutrition counseling, our specialists help each patient create an individualized action plan to put nutrition recommendations into practice on a daily basis.

Joanna Eaton is our nutritionist on staff, and provides medical nutrition therapy to help patients improve their gastrointestinal symptoms, achieve an optimal weight, manage chronic diseases, and improve their quality of life. She is passionate about equipping people with the skills they need to cook, shop and eat right in order to optimize their health.  View Bio »
