To Get Started
1. Nutrition Testing:Schedule the appropriate nutrition tests on our online calendar below. If you want to lose weight, we recommend scheduling a DEXA SCAN and Metabolism testing. If you want us to help you create a supplement plan you can schedule Micronutrient Testing. All Nutrition testing is performed at our Alexandria office location on Wednesdays and Fridays. Your nutrition tests for the DEXA Scan and Metabolism Testing will be reviewed same day if you choose one of our weight loss programs or service with a nutrition consult. Nutrition Testing is a good option because the more information your dietitian nutrition has to evaluate your nutrition status during your nutrition counseling sessions(s) the more accurate she can tailor your nutrition program to help you reach your health goals.
2. One On One Nutrition Counseling with a licensed dietitian nutritionist:Call our office at 703-552-2722 and schedule a consultation with a dietitian nutritionist. Our dietitian nutritionists are both taking virtual and in-office appointments. Your insurance plan may cover these visits.
What does a nutrition counseling visit look like?At your initial nutrition counseling session, your licensed dietitian nutritionist will go over your nutrition testing results with you, if applicable and any other blood work you bring to the visit. If you are looking to lose weight in addition to improving nutrition-related conditions, your dietitian nutritionist will use your Metabolism Test results to accurately calculate the calories and macronutrients you need and may recommend our 2 Phase weight loss program.
Follow-up virtual or in-office nutrition counseling sessionsYour dietitian nutritionist will most likely recommend weekly or every other week 25 to 55-minute in-office or virtual nutrition counseling sessions at least for the first month to make sure you are on the right track to optimal health.
Insurance coverage and rates:All of our licensed dietitian nutritionists are in-network with United, BCBS, Cigna and Aetna, and Medicare. Initial and follow-up nutrition counseling sessions in many cases are covered, as most insurance companies now offer nutrition health benefits. The DEXA Scan, Metabolism Testing, and Micronutrient Testing are self-pay. If you have insurance benefits for nutrition counseling and you have met your deductible you only need to pay your co-pay at the time of session if you have one. If you do not have United, Aetna, Cigna, or BCBS payment will be accepted at your time of the visit and you will receive a superbill for your services to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
