Nutrition and Diet Specialists

We provide nutrition care and counseling for patients in the Esophageal Disorders Program. In particular, we specialize in educating patients regarding eliminating foods from the diet that may cause eosinophilic esophagitis, low residue diets for use in achalasia, and diets for control of symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Treatment Approach

Our behavioral health program offers psychological and medical nutrition therapy to patients coping with a variety of gastrointestinal symptoms and diagnoses. Our goal is to teach self-management strategies that will benefit your gastrointestinal health, emotional well-being, and overall quality of life. Scientific research has shown that certain behavioral treatments are beneficial for gastrointestinal problems and in some cases, may even work better than medicines.
