Reaching the Core for



Whether you are a patient looking to improve nutrition or a provider looking to refer patients, we’d like to thank you for visiting our website!

We are a team of Registered Dietitians who is dedicated to providing the highest level of nutrition counseling and education.  Together we can help you not only achieve short-term outcomes, but long-term nutritional changes too!

We get to know you.

We believe in building positive relationships with our patients over time.  Each assessment allows us to get to know you better, learn more about your disease risk, and individualize a nutrition prescription that you can follow.

We provide you science-based nutrition information.

We take the science of nutrition and translate it into bite-size pieces that are easy for our patients to digest. These pieces will demonstrate how altering your food choices and changing your eating behavior will lessen your disease risk.

We offer you encouragement and support.

We believe in following-up with our patients about their nutritional status and nutrition prescription outcomes.  Each reassessment enables us to identify problems and offer solutions that may further help you achieve nutritional changes.

Whether you want a calorie-controlled diet, diabetic meal plan, food allergy guidance, weight-loss surgery recommendations, or anything in between, we can provide you with the science-based information you need. We appreciate your trust in our services and look forward to working with you soon!

Bariatric Surgery Program

Our Registered Dietitians assess and advise on patients’ nutritional status, educate them on healthy nutrition habits and weight-management skills, outline dietary requirements and restrictions that accompany weight-loss surgery, ensure preparedness for weight-loss surgery, and counsel them that surgery is a tool for weight management and not a solution.

Diabetes Education Program

Our Registered Dietitians help patients gain knowledge and skills they need to manage their diabetes, including with healthy eating, being active, monitoring glucose, taking medications, problem solving, healthy coping, and reducing risks.


Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is a therapeutic plan that focuses on the prevention and treatment of disease.  It has been shown to lessen disease risk, reduce symptoms, and slow disease progression.  When MNT is provided by a Registered Dietitian, you can expect improved outcomes related to medication use and hospital admissions for diabetes, disorders of lipid metabolism, obesity, and other diseases.

“Lisa Roberts, MS, RD gained my respect, confidence, and trust quickly. Her extensive knowledge and calm attitude in conveying [nutrition] information has won me over.

She is an absolute winner as a dietitian!”

I reached out to Lisa Roberts, MS, RD who provided me with a very well thought-out and easy diet plan to lower blood pressure.

Lisa was easy to listen to and made me feel comfortable-I continue to recommend her to friends who need a dietitian.”
