Kim Dickman 

Kim Dickman is a registered dietitian at Evanston Hospital. She graduated from Indiana University magna cum laude in 2011 with a BS in Dietetics. She went on to Loyola University to complete her yearlong internship. She recently received her Certificate of Training in Adult Weight Management in October to enhance her credentials. As a golfer Kim competed at Glenbrook South High School and was awarded CSL All Conference. Her understanding for golf and passion for nutrition will serve you very well. 

Every registered dietitian is a nutritionist, but not every nutritionist is a registered dietitian. A registered dietitian requires a bachelor’s degree in dietetics or nutrition, a 1200-hour internship experience and completion of an extensive exam to receive credentials. In addition, an RD must meet continuing professional education requirements (a minimum of 75 hours per five-year period) that meet his/her professional portfolio goals that have been approved by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND). The term “nutritionist” is unregulated, allowing anyone the ability to call themselves a nutritionist. They do not require relevant academic preparation, training or continuing education. As a result of Kim’s comprehensive training she has the knowledge and skill to offer well constructed dietary plans with sound science as opposed to a fad diet approach.

Tom Bryant


Chiropractor Tom Bryant D.C.

Beyond Freedom from Pain to Freedom from the Problem

Dr. Tom Bryant (DR. T) treats debilitating pain and is happy to help patients experience relief like never before in Northbrook, IL. But Dr. T’s idea is not to just make the pain go away; the point of his unique practice is to make the problem go away completely by eliminating the physiological basis of your pain and problems. His comprehensive and unique 4-part process is all about fixing subluxations (misalignments of the spine), getting the curve of your spine and neck correct and making sure your spine and nerves are functioning correctly for optimal health.

Most physicians and even other chiropractors will say that you can’t change the curvature of your spine or neck through chiropractic treatment. Dr. T offers a way to work on soft tissues and spine itself, and work on restoring spine to proper function.

Patients of Dr. Tom Bryant call him a “miracle worker,” but there are physiological reasons behind the amazing results he is able to produce to help you lead a pain-free existence. Take the first step (even if it’s painful) and contact Dr. T’s office today. We promise tomorrow and the rest of your life will be wonderfully different.
