Being diagnosed with cancer brings to mind several questions regarding nutrition. We employ Registered Dietitians/Nutritionists (RDN) that have specialized training in working with patients with cancer. Their primary purpose is to provide comprehensive medical nutrition therapy before, during, and after your treatment. RDNs are the food and nutrition experts who can translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. Our dietitians have advanced degrees in nutrition as well as certifications in specialty areas such as oncology nutrition, diabetes, nutrition support, and weight management.

Our nutrition team has helped thousands of patients manage the numerous symptoms of cancer, cancer-related treatments, and other chronic diseases. They can help you manage nutrition concerns that may or may not be directly related to your cancer diagnosis. These can include:

  • Nutrition-related side effects during and after treatment such as poor appetite, nausea, altered taste, diarrhea, constipation, and swallowing difficulty
  • Safe food handling and preparation (especially important for immunocompromised patients)
  • Use of multivitamins, minerals, and other natural/herbal products
  • Weight-gain and weight-loss management
  • Special and restricted diets
  • Cancer risk reduction
  • Management of tube feedings and IV parenteral support
  • Presentations on nutrition and cancer for professional organizations, universities and community groups

If you are currently a patient at one of our clinics, please contact the office where you receive treatment to schedule an appointment with the Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist.
