Barton Nutrition Services

Barton's team of dietitians offer patients personalized nutrition therapy and counseling services based on each person’s unique needs. A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) provides reliable, objective advice and can separate facts from fads, healthy meals from dangerous diets, and knows how to translate the latest scientific findings into easy to understand nutrition information.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionists provide medical nutrition therapy, develop individual care plans for people with acute and long-term illness, and counsel in health promotion and disease prevention. A dietitian can provide you with the personal attention you deserve to create a diet and nutrition program just for you.

A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist has completed a minimum of four years of education and training in nutrition science at an accredited U.S. college or university; completed supervised practice; and has demonstrated that knowledge in a credentialing examination.
