Mary McCormack, Registered Dietician

Mary McCormack, Registered Dietician

Mary McCormack, RD, joined Associates in Nephrology in 2008. With over 28 years of experience in providing dietitian services, we feel she offers a valuable service for transplant patients and patients with kidney disease.

Mary believes there are no "forbidden foods," and prefers to focus on educating patients in how to include their favorite foods with meal planning, moderation, and portion control.

Mary’s goal is to help patients discover what they can eat and plan a lifestyle that includes eating out or at home and making good food choices.
