Nutrition Support/Nutrition Counseling

Nutrition support services provide nutrition assessment and evaluation for patients who are receiving specialized nutrition, enteral or parenteral feedings. Services are available to both inpatients and outpatients.

Nutritionists at Fox Chase Cancer Center are assisted by physicians who specialize in oncologic gastroenterology. Patients who are experiencing difficulty in maintaining their weight during treatment, or have other nutrition questions, may make an appointment for outpatient assessment.

Please call 215-728-2597 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
