What should I expect as a new patient?A one-on-one appointment with our Registered Dietitian to develop an individualized nutrition plan by setting small, realistic goals that fit into your lifestyle.
Are they just going to tell me what I can't eat?To put it simply, no! Nutrition counseling focuses on foods and beverages we should be eating and drinking most often, and helps you find your own individual balance with your favorite foods.
Who would benefit from counseling?Anyone interested in prevention or management of the following conditions: - Weight Management - Diabetes or Pre-diabetes - Picky eating and family meals - Hypertension/High blood pressure - High Cholesterol - Heart disease - IBS - Constipation - Inflammation - Healthy Pregnancy - Modified diets - Malnutrition - Thyroid issues - General Wellness
How much does this cost?All forms of insurance are accepted, including private insurance, Veteran's Choice, Medicare, and Medicaid. Most insurance plans cover nutrition services under preventative wellness, meaning you will not have a co-pay.
