Clinical Nutrition Services

Our team of clinical nutritionists work with patients to identify nutritional and lifestyle goals to last a lifetime. Our clinical nutrition program is designed to meet the specific needs and goals of each patient and includes services to:

  • Improve health
  • Manage heart health
  • Maintain weight
  • Manage food allergies
  • Manage health conditions, such as diabetes or digestive disorders
  • Medical oncology nutritional needs
  • Eating disorders
  • Sports nutrition


Medical Assessment and Management

We provide medical assessment and management for patients struggling with eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and combined disorders. This includes inpatient medical stabilization as well as outpatient treatment.

Much of our service is focused on helping bariatric surgery patients. We assist patients in the pre-operative weight loss phase and peri-operative management phase. We also conduct long-term follow-up to ensure patients continue to receive appropriate diet and nutritional support.

Care Across the Region

Clinical nutrition services are offered at Albany Medical Center, Glens Falls Hospital, and Saratoga Hospital. See the list of providers and locations for more information.

Our customized plans are based on science, research, and proven strategies. Our registered dietitians provide lifelong, non-judgmental support and the extra motivation that can make all the difference when challenges arise or the going gets tough.”
