How to Find a Dietitian

Leave a comment

There are several ways to connect with a dietitian:

*Call EatRight Ontario toll-free at 1-877-510-510-2 or send an email for free information. The Registered Dietitians at EatRight Ontario can answer your questions by phone or email and also help you find nutrition services in your community.

Doctor referral: If you have a specific health condition (such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, kidney disease, etc) your doctor may refer you to see a dietitian in a hospital, community health centre, diabetes education centre/program, family health team or private practice.

Diabetes Education Centre: If you have been diagnosed with diabetes or are at risk for diabetes, ask your doctor for a referral. Some diabetes education programs will also give you the option to make an appointment for yourself.

Public Health Unit: Some public health units have dietitians that run nutrition programs for the community. Call your local public health unit to find out what services the dietitians offer in your area.

Community Health Centre: Some community health centres have dietitians that provide counselling and run nutrition programs that don’t always need a doctor’s referral. Call EatRightOntario at 1-877-510-510-2 for help finding a centre in your community.

Private dietitians: Visit Find a Dietitian to search for a dietitian in your area. Some insurance plans will cover the services of a private practice dietitian.
