How do I get started with a dietitian?
A physician’s order is required to schedule an appointment with CMC Outpatient Nutrition Counseling Services. If you do not have a primary care provider, you can locate one above.
When you meet with your primary care provider, you can request a referral into our program. Your primary care provider can fax the physician’s order to 843-234-5016.
Please also submit your insurance card/information so we can determine if nutrition counseling is covered under your insurance plan and advise you of any co-payment or payment that will be needed. If you need to contact our Central Scheduling Department, the direct line is 843-234-5474.
