Medical nutrition therapy services are a vital component in the prevention and management of many medical conditions as well as in the successful achievement of optimal health, wellness, and athletic performance.
I would like to introduce myself and inform you of my newly opened nutrition practice in the Flat Iron district. I am a Registered Dietitian and New York State Certified Nutritionist. I hold a Master’s degree from Columbia University in Applied Physiology and Nutrition and I am a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics. My past work experience includes faculty practice at the Mount Sinai Beth Israel Center for Health & Healing and Nutrition 4 Life, a large scale practice with multiple locations in Manhattan.
I have extensive knowledge in medical nutrition therapy for the prevention and management of disease-specific conditions throughout the lifecycle. For your patients, I can provide education on the topics listed below.
I am available to offer a brief in-service to you and your staff at any time so you may gain a better understanding of my services, fee schedule, insurance plans accepted, and how to make appropriate referrals. I look forward to the opportunity to provide quality collaborative care for your patients.
