Nutrition & Weight Management
We believe that proper nutrition is one of the most important pillars to a happy, healthy, and balanced life. That’s why, as a member of Peninsula Doctor, you’ll have access to a comprehensive nutritional plan.
When we meet with you for the first time, we’ll spend time getting to know your current nutritional routine, as well as your nutritional goals. We’ll learn about any unique challenges you face because of your work environment, cultural requirements, or health concerns. Once we have a complete understanding of your background and medical needs, we’ll work with you to create a plan based on your specific health and nutrition goals. As part of this nutritional plan, you’ll receive an assessment, ongoing consulting, progress monitoring, and a personal menu based on your individual needs.
All nutritional programs at Peninsula Doctor are managed by our registered dietician and overseen by Dr. Ian Kroes. Our programs include Weight Loss Management, Prenatal & Pregnancy Nutrition, Diabetes Nutrition, Sports Nutrition, and General Nutrition.
Please contact Peninsula Doctor for your comprehensive nutrition and weight management assessment.
