Join Us in Welcoming our New Nutritionist
We are excited to introduce Ning Wan, R.D., to our team. Ning joins us with more than 10 years of experience in counseling children of all ages and their families on special nutritional requirements for a variety of conditions. Although Ning is a busy mom, she will offer to our patients an expanded schedule that includes after-school appointments. Please read more about Ning on Our Team page.
Whether your child has special dietary needs, specific nutritional deficiencies, or you just have questions about best practices for feeding children at specific ages, our registered dietician can provide guidance. Patients can have a nutritional consultation with or without a visit to a gastroenterologist. If your child does need a gastroenterological evaluation, we will be able to schedule a timely consultation.
For your convenience and because the patient is required to attend this appointment, we offer after-school appointments.
Contact our receptionist for further information.
