Make an Appointment with a Registered Dietitian

The Team of Registered Dietitians at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center and surrounding community clinics are committed to providing our veteran patients with ongoing support and education.  We are available to Veterans on an outpatient basis for a number of disease states, including, but not limited to:

Congestive Heart Disease Gastrointestinal Disorders High Blood Pressure
Cancer Obesity Failure to Thrive
Diabetes High Cholesterol Renal Disease
Nutrition Support    

In most circumstances, you will be followed by the Registered Dietitian who is located at your Primary Care Clinic.  There are 2 ways to get in direct contact with your dietitian, either by telephone listed below, or logging in to Secured Messaging on My HealtheVet (I am not familiar with MyHealtheVet).
