Your food choices influence how well you tolerate treatment, help you heal and recover more quickly after treatment, and optimize your future health. Each patient at West Cancer Center & Research Institute has the added advantage of nutrition counseling. We offer the expertise of an on-site Registered Dietitian Nutritionist that provides individualized assistance on food related issues during and after our cancer treatment. There is no charge for these services.

Making smart food choices can be confusing. Let us help you sort through the facts from the fiction by scheduling an appointment with our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Anita Vincent. To request an appointment, please contact [email protected] or call 901.683.0055.
