WHAT IS A DIETITIAN AND WHY SHOULD YOU SEE ONE?
A registered dietitian is a nutrition expert who has met certain credentialing requirements, which include obtaining a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college, having at least 1200 hours of supervised practice, passing the national exam from the Commission on Dietetic Registration, and maintaining continuing education.
Dietitians can always help with the more commonly known obstacles of weight loss and food allergies, but they offer a wide set of services on top of that! Dietitians help clients manage diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. They can also help people ease their digestive issues such as IBS and Crohn's disease.
WHAT IS THE INITIAL CONSULTATION LIKE?
The purpose of the initial consultation is for the dietitian to gain knowledge about your eating patterns. After a series of questions, you will discuss the next steps toward making your goal a reality.
DO I NEED TO DO/ BRING ANYTHING TO MY FIRST APPOINTMENT?
Yes! There are first-time patient forms that need to be filled out prior to the first appointment. These can be found in the 'Patient Forms' tab.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DOES ENVISION DIETETICS TAKE?

WILL MY HEALTH INSURANCE COVER DIETITIAN SERVICES?

WILL I GET A REFUND IF I CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?
