Preparing for your appointment
What to Bring
- For medical nutrition therapy, a written referral from your doctor or nurse practitioner is required. Please bring the referral to your appointment, if it hasn't already been mailed or faxed to the appropriate UCSF Nutrition Counseling Clinic. By law, you must have a written referral to receive medical nutrition therapy.
- A copy of the results of any recent lab tests if they were performed somewhere other than at UCSF. Or ask your doctor to fax lab results to us at (415) 514-4359.
- A three-day food record: Before your visit, write down everything you eat and drink for three consecutive days, if possible
- Please make note of the clinic location for your appointment
