Referrals and Appointments

Our nutritionist can receive referrals from Baylor and non-Baylor providers. Non-Baylor patients should bring recent pertinent lab work to the initial counseling session.

This service may need to be pre-approved by your insurance. Please ask your primary care provider to request authorization or referral.

Also, the Baylor Family Medicine nutritionist may be seen at a different location from that of your general Baylor Family Medicine physician. Call 713-798-7700 to inquire about an appointment.
