    Do you need a referral for insurance for Dietian services or can they just be a walk in? Any help with any dietician services would be great!!!!!

    That will depend on the patient's insurance contract. This is not the same for every payor or every plan. You, or the patient, will need to contact the insurance first and see if an official referral is required.
