With the passing of Medical Nutrition Therapy legislation and Medicare reimbursement, the Palms of Pasadena Hospital Outpatient Nutrition Counseling Center has taken the opportunity to better serve the public and our patients by providing nutrition counseling. We are offering a variety of medically based nutrition programs that will help manage such conditions as diabetes, high cholesterol and obesity. We provide individualized counseling by a Registered Dietitian.
