What can I expect at appointments?

Your first appointment will be a 60-minute comprehensive assessment of your medical history, current lifestyle and personal goals. Your dietitian will use your goals as a roadmap for future appointments.

Follow up appointments will be scheduled weekly, biweekly, or monthly and will be either 30 or 60 minutes long. We see the best results with long-term follow up and you’ll work with your dietitian to develop the plan that’s best for you.
