This is a client-driven behavior change process that leads to long-term changes in food and nutrition habits. It can also be medical nutrition therapy for learning how to manage disease. The first in-person session lasts 1.5-2 hours and includes an initial plan of action. Prior to March 2020, 95% of clients were seen in our office. Since, 95% of clients are seen via telehealth.
You can expect questions regarding medical history, lifestyle habits, nutrition habits, and exercise habits. Follow-up sessions are about 1 hr each. Sessions are designed to explore long-held beliefs, patterns, and emotions related to nutrition status as well as provide tangible plans of action. We also offer phone and/or webcam-based follow-ups, for your convenience.
Nutrition and Fitness Professional, LLC is an in-network provider for most health insurance plans and DOES accept Medicare but no longer Medicaid clients since 4th quarter 2021. If you have private health insurance for which we are not an in-network provider and wish to file individually for possible reimbursement for seeing an out-of-network registered dietitian (RD), we will furnish a superbill (medical receipt) for you to submit to your insurance company. You are more likely to meet coverage rules of your plan if you are familiar with your specific plan’s rules and coverage (make sense? :)).
Nutrition and Fitness Professional, LLC is HIPAA compliant and values your protected health information. We maintain electronic health records in a secure format to maintain client/patient information and can communicate securely authorized healthcare providers, if requested in your Authorization for Release of Information form.

However, most clients have preferred the convenience of virtual visits since March 2020.
