Singing River Health System has trained dietitians on staff to provide outpatient counseling services to assist you with your nutritional needs. Ranging from 30 minutes to one hour, counseling sessions include a 24-hour recall, education on specific diet material and goal setting.
While many of our patients are referred to us for weight loss, we also provide education information for diabetic diets, low sodium diets for high blood pressure, heart healthy diets for cardiac patients and renal diets for chronic kidney disease patients. Other education items include diabetic gastroparesis, gluten-free diets and weight gain for cancer patients.
Outpatient services are available to any patient on a referral basis by a physician.
To contact a registered dietitian, call 228-818-2167 or 228-809-5538. Nutrition services are provided at Ocean Springs Hospital and Singing River Hospital.
