SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESITONS
What's included in the holistic assessment?
Assessments include an in depth medical history exam, review of dietary and eating patterns, supplement use and health goals. It usually lasts an hour. After I get to know as much as possible about you, I will work with you to create an attainable and meaningful nutrition action plan specific to your situation.
What is included in a follow up?
Follow ups are opportunities for further education on nutrition topics I see fit for your situation, to assess progress, address questions or concerns you have, and to tailor goals and treatment as needed.
Do I pay monthly or is it a one time fee?
This is dependent upon which package you choose to go with. The Jump Start package is a one time fee. The other two packages require a 50% payment upfront and can then be paid through the subsequent months of treatment.
Are your services covered by insurance?
Yes! I currently accept Cigna, Blue Cross of Idaho, Regence Blue Shield and others. Contact me for details if you would like to use insurance during a visit.
How is care set up?
I practice out of Cda Primary Care, a primary care physician's office located in Coeur D Alene at 920 W Ironwood Drive Suite 200.
What does a dietitian actually do?
A dietitian is a medical professional that uses the practice of medical nutrition therapy to conduct extensive nutrition assessments on all patients and clients to assess anything from micro-nutrient (vitamin and mineral) deficiencies to present factors that put patients at risk for chronic health concerns. They have specialized training in preventing diseases through lifestyle choices and treating diseases that have already been diagnosed by using comprehensive approaches that consider medical and social history, lab values, food allergies or food intolerance etc. We are medical professionals found in the community, hospitals, schools, clinics, food industry, and private practices that work to educate and empower people to live their most fully functioning and healthy life.
