Barbara Rigg is a NZ qualified Dietitian with 28 years experience. She has worked in public and private hospitals in the earlier part of her professional career. She has spent the last 16 years successfully operating her private practice.
Numerous North Shore GPs are now referring their patients to her practice. The feedback has been very positive, the results Barbara has helped patients achieve have been convincing. GPs and Practice Nurses can get very busy in their surgeries and having a nutritionist on the North Shore has become a great resource for some. Giving preventative advice on diet and lifestyle to patients takes time and effort and often this makes huge demands on all involved in the process. A referral to Lifestyle Nutrition and Health can free up the practice time.
The risk factors for nutrition related illness such as obesity, high cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, and unsuccessful chronic dieting are all high priority for early intervention to prevent further serious illnesses and complications from developing.
Barbara also works part-time as a consultant to Dr Rob Fris at Northridge Specialist Centre, Wairau Rd, consulting with clients who require bariatric surgery for the treatment of obesity.
Barbara is a recognised specialist in nutrition and lifestyle and is passionate about her work in helping clients improve their health.
