How to Access Individualized Medical Nutrition Therapy
To be seen by a member of our team you will need a referral from your primary care physician (PCP) with a medical diagnosis and the type of nutritional counseling you are being recommended for.
If your PCP is located on the BMC campus, ask him/her to send the referral via Logician. Otherwise, referrals can be faxed to 617.638.7449 or mailed to:
Boston Medical Center
Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes, Nutrition and Weight Management
Preston Family Building, 2nd floor
732 Harrison Avenue
Boston, MA 02118
Attn: Stephanie Spaide, MS RD LDN
Our office will contact you upon receipt of the referral. Your health insurance may cover or partially cover medical nutrition therapy; however, some insurance plans do not cover visits with a dietitian or will only cover visits for patients with a specific diagnosis. Please contact your insurance company to learn details about your specific coverage.
If you don't have insurance, or if your insurance will not cover dietitian visits, you may self pay at the time of the visit. Please contact Patient Financial Services at 850 Harrison Avenue, Ground Floor (617.638.6157) PRIOR to your scheduled appointment for further details.
