“I am writing today to say how thankful I have been to have Tina Patnode in my
life.  She gave my life back to me through the FODMAP diet for my IBS.  She
is open and has such good information for patients.”


“Tina has always answered my questions and sited the latest reliable information about my IBS and about FODMAPS research. I am very happy with my interactions with her and with the results I have had. My quality of life has improved and I feel as if I am making informed dietary choices instead of guessing and having no way to improve my symptoms. I am more confident and less apprehensive about food.”


“Tina is an excellent dietitian. She keeps up to date on new information for patients. She does her best to help the patients reach their goal. She helped me to reopen my life to living it again. Totally appreciate Tina.”


“I want to thank you for your help. The insight I gained from our conversations and from the diet itself were invaluable. It’s a service that’s never been offered to me before, much to my regret, because it might have shaved years off a level of misery I’d come to think was just my lot in life. While the IBS isn’t completely gone, between the peppermint oil and the diet, it’s much better. So, thank you again. I have benefited from your help and am most grateful.”


“Tina is warm, professional and very knowledgeable. I appreciated her input.”


“I am lucky to have a dietitian with such expertise in the FODMAP diet.”
