Pediatricians and Physicians
Due to the serious physical risks associated with eating disorders, the individuals' health must be closely monitored. Dr. Thomas will collaborate with your physician or your child's pediatrician to work toward achieving treatment goals.
Medication has not been shown to be an effective treatment option for eating disorders. However, when a comorbid condition exists, such as depression or anxiety, medication may enhance the effectiveness of treatment by alleviating other symptoms. Please inform Dr. Thomas of any medications you are currently taking or considering taking.
Registered Dieticians and Nutritionists
At times, individuals or the parents of a child with an eating disorder may need to receive nutritional counseling. Registered dieticians can educate parents and individuals, so they are able to make healthy choices regarding different foods and amounts in order to best meet nutritional goals.
