Medical Nutrition Therapy

If your child needs a nutrition recommendation, a registered dietitian will take a look at her typical food/formula intake. We will also take a look at growth, including height, weight, head circumference and body/mass index (BMI). Lab results and medications will be reviewed, as well as any diet restrictions, past medical history, and physical activity.

Although many insurance companies pay for this service, you should call the customer service number on your insurance card to be sure that medical nutrition therapy is a covered. The insurance codes are 97802 for the first appointment, and 97803 for follow-up appointments.

A physician referral is required. Your child’s doctor can fax the referral to 330-543-3808.  To schedule an appointment, please call 330-543-3979
