Dr. Brad Lerner of LernerCohen Health Care in Sarasota has a full-time dietitian on staff. Though the practice doesn’t see children, it accepts patients from 16 to 106.
“Most physicians don’t have the time to counsel their patients appropriately on diet,” Lerner said. “To provide truly comprehensive care, dietary help is almost as important as what we do with medication. Many of the diseases we treat are areas where diet can have a major impact on patients’ well being.”
