Annie Scott, Registered Dietitian. Annie Scott has been working for Imperial Beach Community Clinic since 2007. Struggling with her own weight as a teenager, she is now able to help clients eat healthily, and reach their desired weight with individual counseling sessions and group classes.
Individual Counseling Sessions help patients set achievable goals and manage whatever they are struggling with the most: weight, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure or other diet related issues. Clients are encouraged to bring family and friends to visits to continue to get the most support to reach their goals!
