Pediatrician Referrals

Would your practice benefit from having a Registered Dietitian available to address your patient’s nutrition needs? As a Pediatrician, your time is valuable. Pediatric Nutrition Therapy is a unique service that is partnering with physicians all over the Twin Cities, working together to help streamline care and provide nutrition interventions and education for patients and their families with no cost, no contract, and no obligation to the physicians, rather just a referral to our services. 

There may be various reasons for a dietitian referral including but not limited to: food allergies, failure to thrive, tube feeding management, EoE, IBD, IBS, constipation, feeding difficulty, pancreatitis, weight loss, anemia, and other medical conditions that may be affecting your patients health.
