Care Philosophy

As a dietitian and diabetic educator I believe strongly that changes in diet and lifestyle will improve chronic conditions and prevent diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis. Accurate research-based nutrition education can provide the tools needed for proper health and balanced diet. I believe that my high success rate is due to my approach to individualize treatment according to the personal needs and goals of my patients. Nutrition and lifestyle changes should be exciting!

Dr. Poly is extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and how it affects your body and specific health issues. She gives some "tough love" but everything she says and does it for the health and well being of her patients. As a Type II Diabetic and chronic dieter, I've been most successful listening to her guidance.
