Patricia Iampietro, RD, LDN
My name is Patti Iampietro. I am a Registered Dietitian and Licensed in the state of PA. I obtained my BS degree in Health Ed from Penn State in 1991. I worked in a variety of settings to teach in many different areas of health education such as nutrition, first aid and stress management. In 2004 I completed my AS degree as a Diet Tech. I moved into working at Shadyside Hospital where I worked with patients who had a variety of medical problems and provided education on how good nutrition may help improve their quality of health.
I then continued on to obtain my BS degree in Nutrition from Rutgers University in 2014. I started working in the Center for Eating Disorders with those people struggling with all types of Eating Disorders. I decided to leave the hospital to be able to work with these patients so that they can strive for long-term recovery by helping them learn what healthy eating may look like for them after standard treatment. My approach is one that treats the whole client, not just the disorder, with an individual plan that is built using a treatment team approach. While I will work to establish a structured meal plan, I will also encourage flexibility in a non-judgmental approach to healthy eating.
I also work with those who suffer from IBS to explore how dietary changes may bring about symptom relief and then allow them to discover what and how to eat to maintain symptom control. I have competed the Low FODMAP training course through Monash University. Not only do I guide clients through this IBS management dietary plan, I live it.
