Phoo has cultivated his knowledge and expertise in medical nutrition therapy in various hospital systems in New York City. His interests in lifestyle nutrition is something that was brought up from being raised as a child of immigrants. He learned about how food unites us, teaches us about who we are, and has a strong cultural influence on our lives. He is devoted to providing evidenced-based, patient-centered nutrition care for all those in need to reach their lifestyle goals while continuing to celebrate their individual food cultures. Before joining the Culina Health team, Phoo worked as a critical care dietitian in the medical intensive care unit at Kings County Hospital.
Phoo’s counseling style is patient-centered and collaborative. He takes an emotional-and-behavioral-focused, goal-oriented, supportive and evidenced forward approach to nutrition care for all genders and backgrounds.
In his spare time, Phoo enjoys socializing with friends and family when he is not hanging out with his cat, Bruce. During the winter season in New York, you can find him hibernating at home cooking up a nice hot meal. When it’s nice out, you can probably find him at a park, the pier or the beach.
