About the Company

Our business actually started more than 30 years ago as Keech and associates. Phil Keech, the principal dietitian, retired 5 years ago, then Kelly Stephenson took over the business renaming it Hunter Nutrition Specialists.

We started the company as a private practice dietitian business to provide clinical, scientific, evidence-based advice to people to manage their health conditions and obtain the best possible health.

Kelly personally has 22 years of experience as a dietitian in a variety of medical nutrition therapies. Her areas of interest and experience include diabetes, tube feeding, oncology, heart disease, rehabilitation, and aboriginal health.

Our consultation fees can attract rebate from Medicare if clients have team care arrangement and referral from their general practitioner, or if private health rebates are available.

If clients in Singleton, Scone, or Muswellbrook have a rural Hunter Primary Care referral from their general practitioner, no payment is required.
