Then wait to check in with the receptionist was longer and a bit more frustrating than my actual meeting with her.she is his rally by birth which makes her tough stubborn and very sure-footed in her ways. By her and many professionals that is very good and reassuring. She gave me a proper meal plan to follow and dispel some of the myths that have been told to me including in a couple of diabetic support groups. She didn't beat around the bush. The office where she was at itself is not a real pleasure the receptionist were frustrating one wanted me to check in with the computerized at check-in stay that stood in between seats where patients sit in the waiting roomever design that program should have their head examined and was clearly politically incorrect and I lefty. In any case if you are in the Bronx or in the area she's well worth going to it was a great decision and even more surprising was the quick appointment I was able to secure and go to

About Zipporah Oksman

I have been counseling pediatric, adolescents, and adult patients in the Bronx for the past ten years and for five years at the outpatient pediatric, ob-gyn high risk, and bariatric clinic at St. Luke's - Roosevelt Hospital. I work with a team of pediatricians, pediatric endocrinologists, and community physicians that refer patients to me and most of my patients require that I speak and prepare educational materials in Spanish. I am fluent in English, Spanish, Romanian, and Hebrew. My team approach helps me provide the best care and resources to my patients. I primarily assess patients with the following issues using the Nutrition Care Process: Lipid disorder, hypertension, pre and post bariatric surgery, kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, failure to thrive, short stature, food allergies, vitamin deficiencies, obesity, diabetes, PCOS, and difficult feeding problems. I also develop and implement educational programs and materials to help my patients overcome some of these issues. I also coordinate with the physicians and community services in the neighborhood to help my patients achieve a healthier lifestyle. I am a preceptor for Lehman College's nutrition program and have been a preceptor for over ten years for the nutrition program for Teacher's College at Columbia University.
