Initial Nutrition Consult
In your first visit you can expect to address the following:
Getting to know your family!
Assessment of nutrient intake and deficiencies
Formula/feeding recommendations and/or Tube-feeding regimens
Instruction on specialized diets
Nutrition goals and nutrition plan
Communication with interdisciplinary team
A big part of the first visit is getting to know you & your child. After a thorough assessment you will receive a individualized nutrition plan with goals based on the information gathered and nutrient needs. At the end of each consult a follow-up appointment will be scheduled to assess the progress on the plan established during your first visit. I will communicate with the interdisciplinary team (physician, therapists, etc.) prior to and post appointment so that together we can reach your child's nutrition goals.
Up to 55 Minutes
In your follow-up you can expect to address the following:
- Review of growth
- Review of intake
- Adjustments in feeding plan and supplements
- Monitor progress towards goals
- Communication with interdisciplinary team
After working with your family in the initial visit to create a plan, the follow-up appointment will track growth and continue to provide support to meet nutrition goals. Adjustments will be made based on patient/parent input and the interdisciplinary team (physician, therapists, etc.), together to reaching your child's nutrition goals.
