Desmond Doss Health Clinic

The Desmond Doss Health Clinic offers a broad range of nutritional services designed to deliver patient-centered healthcare to Active Duty, Family Members and Retirees.  Our Registered Dietitians provide evidence-based medical nutrition therapy, nutrition education and counseling to assist you in modifying your diet to improve your health, fitness and performance.  Our priority is patient care and satisfaction.  The team is dedicated to meeting your needs and exceeding your expectations.  

Due to the high volume of patients referred for nutrition education and counseling, individuals with common nutrition concerns such as weight control or heart health are often scheduled for a group education session before receiving an individual appointment to further customize nutrition recommendations.

Everyone is able to schedule an individual nutrition appointment with a Registered Dietitian 2-4 weeks after attending a class. Changes in nutrition and behavior are progressive and require reinforcement. Scheduling a follow-up visit 2-4 weeks after attending a group class or initial nutrition appointment is strongly recommended to help you further individualize your diet and for accountability purposes.
Common reasons to meet with a Registered Dietitian, including seeking information are: 
Weight Management
Heart Disease 
Kidney Disease
Bariatric Nutrition
Pediatric Nutrition
Pregnancy Nutrition
Eating Disorders
How to book a Nutrition Appointment at Desmond Doss Health Clinic
Active Duty, Dependents, and Retirees are able to schedule an individual nutrition appointment with a Registered Dietitian by calling the appointment line, utilizing secure messaging or visiting their Primary Care Clinic.

♦  Spouses and/or adult family members who help prepare meals are welcome and highly encouraged to attend classes and individual appointments with you.
