Food Allergies and Dietary Needs

We can speak with anyone who follows a specific type of diet out of health or medical necessity, or for lifestyle or religious reasons. If you have a food allergy or intolerance, we highly recommend that you contact Puneet Sethi, Registered Dietitian. Your food allergy or intolerance will be reviewed to help you make informed decisions about your food choices.
