“Clarice has been a real support to my IBS patients and those with food intolerances, as well as patients with Crohn’s disease and after gut surgery. She is a great communicator and has tremendous empathy with people who may be having problems with eating and food.”  Dr Judith Collett, Gastroenterologist

“I was recommended to Dietary Specialists by my GP after having emergency surgery for my small intestine…They had a great understanding of my specific needs. Activating their plan in the early months was a huge part of allowing me to return to work within 4 weeks of surgery and making a strong recovery close to full health within 6 months.”  Darren S, Christchurch
