Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost of a nutrition assessment / consultation?

 

Initial nutrition assessments are $175.00 per session.  Follow up visits will vary in cost based on time spent and nature of information shared with each patient.

 

What is the duration of a standard nutrition
assessment / consultation?

 

Initial consultations normally last 1-1.25 hours.  A thorough analysis of your health and nutrition history as well as your clinical signs and symptoms are assessed.   Follow up visits vary in duration based on information covered in each session. 

 

Do you accept insurance?

 

Most insurance plans do not recognize and/or cover the costs associated with nutrition counseling, therefore we do not accept insurance.  Many Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) or Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) will reimburse for nutrition services administered by a Registered Dietitian.  Necessary documentation will be provided to all clients to help facilitate this process.  We advise clients to check with their insurance company regarding coverage.  Full payment is expected the day of your office visit.
