Special services

Eating disorder evaluation
Concerned about your eating? Schedule an evaluation with our expert team; call (413) 577-5101. 

You will have a 60-minute meeting with a nutritionist, who will discuss your diet history with you. You will also meet with a physician for a 30-minute medical evaluation. We will also help to connect you with a counselor as part of your treatment team. These will be separate visits.

You may be asked to have blood work prior to your first appointment with the physician. If you had blood work within the past two weeks or have seen another provider for your eating disorder, ask your provider to fax the results and notes to us, at (413) 577-5440. 

If you have any questions, please call and speak with our resource nurse at (413) 577-5079. We look forward to working with you!
