Nutrition

Codman has always recognized that nutrition is a crucial part of overall health, and has a strong nutrition department whose team has worked in Dorchester for decades. Our nutritionists know the challenges patients face when it comes to getting optimal nutrition and are skilled at helping them plan, strategize, and get the best nutrition for their unique needs.

Integrated Care

Integrated nutrition care means that if, during the course of a primary care provider visit, a patient could benefit from nutrition counseling or intervention, an expert nutritionist will come and consult with the patient. Whether that consultation is a one-time visit or starts a series of consults, the team will make sure that patients have what they need to meet their nutrition goals.

Some common reasons that patients seek nutritional counseling include:

  • Weight loss/gain
  • Diabetes management
  • Hypertension management
  • Picky eating
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Pregnancy
  • General healthy lifestyle information

Group Visits

Codman’s Nutrition team also coordinates and participates in different group medical visits throughout the Health Center, including Diabasics, which helps patients newly diagnosed with diabetes; Don’t Weight, a group for patients trying to lose weight; and our MindBody Medicine program.

If you would like to make an appointment with our nutritionists, call 617-825-9660 or request an appointment.
