Michael & Dianne Bienes Comprehensive Cancer Center - Nutrition
The goal of the oncology dedicated Registered Dietician is to optimize nutrition to each patient by recommending and offering a variety of well-tolerated foods. The nutritionist also educates both patients and their families about changing nutritional needs as they undergo treatment in order to boost the immune system.
The registered dietician assesses our patients by obtaining food preference, adjusting consistencies and textures of foods and making suggestions to physicians regarding improving nutritional status with oral supplements, tube feedings and hyperallmentation.
