Frequently Asked Questions

If you do not see your question, let us know. 

Are you accepting new clients?

YES, I am! Please note that the first available appointment is usually within 2 weeks.

How can I work with you or schedule an appointment?

– You may schedule a Strategy Session.
– If you were referred by a Doctor, a member of our team will reach out to schedule your appointment.

What conditions/diseases can you help with?

Both me and the Dietitians on my team are delighted to be able to provide a variety of health and nutrition education/coaching services to different clients due to our expertise in various clinical, functional nutrition modalities. However, due to demand, I select clients after a strategy conversation has taken place and I’ve officially invited you to join one of my programs. If I believe I cannot meet your needs or that you would benefit from another provider, I will connect you with another RD or Nutrition Coach in the area. I take pride to be of service and to be the best “match” for both you and for me.

Do you accept Insurance?

I am currently a network provider for:

​ ​ -Aetna

​ ​ -Hill Physicians Medical Group

​ ​ -Sutter East Bay

​ ​ -United Healthcare

 However, I ask that YOU call and confirm insurance coverage for nutrition counseling.

 

Disclosure: “Verification of benefits is not a guarantee of eligibility or payment; actual payment is based on terms and conditions of your plan. All claims are subject to review as insurance may only cover dietary services that are reasonable or necessary.”

Please understand that each insurance plan may differ in their definition of medical necessity for certain services.”

Are you available for online / virtual visits?

YES! I have moved into the virtual world and I am using an online portal called Healthie – its pretty awesome 🙂

I am a student, can I pick your brain?

I love to help! Please schedule a Strategy Session.

Do you check insurance eligibility?

We are sorry for the inconvenience, but it is the patient’s responsibility to check for insurance eligibility and coverage, if you call please inquire about visits allowed and deductibles. If insurance denies any service- it becomes patient responsibility.
