nutrition & weight management
At Peninsula Doctor we offer a comprehensive nutritional plan to all of our members. We believe that nutrition is one of the pillars of a healthy, happy, and well-balanced life. When we meet with new patients for our initial assessment we work with each individual to understand their nutritional goals and the unique challenges they face. We understand that each patient has a different lifestyle, as well as cultural influences that affect their ability to achieve their health and nutrition goals. We work with you to create a plan around your specific health needs and desires. If you decide to work with our nutritionist, you will receive nutrition assessment, ongoing consulting, progress monitoring and personal menu.
All programs are being run by our Registered Dietician and overseen by Dr. Ian Kroes. Our nutrition programs include Weight Loss Management, Pre-natal & Pregnancy Nutrition, Diabetes Nutrition, Sports Nutrition and General Nutrition.
