'The best doctor gives the least medicine'
Senior citizens have very different nutritional needs compared to the rest of the age-groups. Age affects how your body processes food, which influences your dietary needs and affects your appetite and nutrition intake. Aging is not only associated with medical nutrition but also nutrition for health and disease prevention. A helping hand is all that is needed to make them aware of safe exercising and healthy eating.

I ensure that our patients get the right nutrition that helps them become stronger and healthier. A good diet not only helps them stay healthy, but also makes them feel happier and more satisfied.
