Frequently Asked Questions


Due to administrative costs, we do not contract with any insurance companies nor submit for reimbursement directly. We encourage you to contact your insurance company prior to your initial consultation to find out if the visit may be covered. For many insurance plans you will need a referral from a physician with a diagnosis to utilize your benefits.


Payment is due at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards. After the initial visit, clients may select monthly automatic payments using a credit card.

Sliding Scale

We offer a limited number of sliding scale appointments based on financial need. Each registered dietitian maintains her own schedule of sliding scale appointments and can discuss current availability with you directly by telephone or email.

Cancellation Policy

Please call or email your clinician directly to reschedule or cancel an appointment (contact information below). You will be charged the full fee for any appointment cancelled less than 48 hours in advance.
