Our dietitians meet individually with patients to discuss eating plans, weight management, and the science of food and nutrition. Tailoring a nutrition plan to meet your medical needs will help speed up your recovery and restore you to health.

Your doctor may refer you to one of our dietitians:

  • If you have been diagnosed with a condition such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high blood cholesterol, heart disease, renal disease, acid reflux (heartburn), obesity, or an eating disorder
  • If you are unable to meet your nutritional needs by eating and require supplemental parenteral nutrition (TPN) or enteral nutrition (tube feedings)

If you are staying at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and have special dietary preferences such as kosher or vegetarian meals, you may be seen by a diet technician.

In addition, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center patients of the Heart and Vascular Center, Norris Cotton Cancer Center, Solid Organ Transplant Program or the Bariatric Surgery Program, will work with dietitians in those departments.
