Nutritional Counseling and Services

About Oncology Nutritional Counseling Services

People with cancer have unique nutritional needs and may require special nutritional attention. Cancer treatment, as well as certain cancers themselves, may cause symptoms that may make it difficult to eat. Our cancer nutritionists are registered dietitians who can help you decide what type of diet is best for you, based on your diagnosis and current relationship with food.

Nutritional counseling by a registered dietitian is available for all patients at our cancer centers.

Your Nutritional Support Team

Our team of registered dietitians are certified as specialists in oncology nutrition and work directly with other members of your care team to help you manage symptoms and side effects before, during and after treatment. To speak with one of our registered dietitians, please speak with your doctor, nurse navigator, or a member of your care team.
