Nutrition Counseling FAQs
Who needs nutrition counseling?

What’s the first session like?
In the first session, our dietitians will get a background on you to find out more about your lifestyle, eating habits, medical history, and health goals. Based on the information gathered, you and the dietitian will develop a plan to meet those goals.
How many times do we meet?
The frequency of your sessions depends on your goals. It can range from 2 visits to unlimited visits.

I have special dietary needs, can you still help me?
Yes, our dietitians are trained to deal with a wide variety of issues including food allergies, digestive issues, diabetes, and heart disease.
