Visit your physician to determine if Nutrition Therapy is the best option for you.  If so, your doctor will provide a physician order, which is similar to a prescription. Or, contact our dietitian directly at 712-662-6396,  who will obtain the required paperwork from your physician. Our registered dietitian will schedule a time that is convenient for you to meet at her office.
