".....I know my lab reports have gotten better because of my diet. Marissa is an excellent dietician who is very patient. I know that without the diet that she has me on, I would be on dialysis.I am an advocate for anyone that I know who has kidney problems. I tell them what Marissa Martorana has done for me and that your diet has a lot to do with your health."
"I hired Marissa to provide consulting services for the LAEP Early Head Start program. She addressed the nutrition referrals and provided parents with nutrition education. Marissa also created a variety of menus and a nutrition education booklet to meet the needs of the program. She also created nutrition policies and procedures for the program and provided staff training. She is professional to work with and I would highly recommend Marissa for nutrition consulting services."
