While some of these dietitians have experience and a professional interest in celiac disease, most listings are not “celiac experts;” in many cases, they are simply dietitians who have been recommended by a celiac patient.

This list is provided for information only and is not intended as an endorsement of any dietitian. We suggest that patients educate themselves before their appointment and go prepared with questions and resources. Please see our list of university celiac center web sites for helpful information about diagnosis and treatment.
