A Word From Lindsey Waldman, MD, RD

As both a registered dietitian and physician, I am extremely excited to be a member of Verywell's Medical Review Board. Throughout my training and career, my goal has been to provide accessible and accurate information to patients so that they can be well-informed health consumers. The internet can be very useful in gathering information, but also scary. With sites like Verywell and its Medical Review Board, it is amazing to know that the information can be trusted.
