Medical Nutrition Therapy:     Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT)    
With MNT an individualized nutrition plan is developed by a registered licensed dietitian to meet the patient’s specific  needs.  MNT covers nutrition assessment of the patient, nutrition diagnosis, and nutrition intervention including diet therapy and diet counseling/education.    

Physician/Health Care Provider Referral (Doctor’s Order):     Before an appointment can be scheduled a health care provider’s referral, written doctor’s order, is required. The written order must include diagnosis and supporting/related medical information.    

    Once your health care provider has provided the dietitian with a written order for MNT, you may call (937) 386-3861 to schedule your appointment. You may need to leave a message if the dietitian is not available when you call. You will receive a return phone call to then schedule your appointment.
