Nutrition Counseling

What you eat has a big impact on your health. Whether you are trying to reach a healthy weight, cope with an illness or reduce the risk of disease, proper nutrition plays an important role. Our program offers people of all ages and medical histories the support and guidance needed to make healthy food choices, one step at a time.

South Miami Hospital’s registered and licensed dietitians offer personalized nutrition counseling designed to fit your healthcare needs. Our dietitians are knowledgeable in all areas of nutrition and can develop healthy eating plans based on the following health concerns:

  • Heart disease, including management of high blood pressure and high cholesterol
  • Cancer
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Weight management
  • Kidney disease
  • Pregnancy
  • Health vegetarian eating
  • Nutrition for children and adolescents

  • Services are offered in both English and Spanish.

    A one-hour initial appointment includes an in-depth assessment to determine your nutritional needs. The dietitian will discuss ways to make healthy food choices, and you will receive information to help you understand and manage your nutritional needs. Thirty-minute follow-up appointments, if necessary, are available.

    Payment is required at the time of the appointment. Your insurance company may reimburse you for nutrition counseling ordered by a physician. Check with you insurance company to be sure of your coverage.
