Nutrition Counseling with one of our licensed dietitian nutritionists is for individuals who have been referred by a medical provider for a specific medical nutrition condition such as but not limited to; high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, fatty liver, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, sports nutrition, PCOS, acid reflux, food allergies, infertility, hypoglycemia, Crohn’s disease, weight loss, celiac disease, binge eating, and bariatric surgery or has done their own research and think they need to develop a more nutritious lifestyle.

To Get Started
1. Nutrition Testing

Nutrition testing is recommended before your nutrition counseling appointment. If you want to lose weight and/or body fat we recommend the DEXA SCAN which will assess your body fat and evaluate your bone density and METABOLISM TESTING so your dietitian nutritionist can accurately design a nutrition plan with the right amount of calories and macronutrients to help you meet your weight, body composition and health goals. If you think you may have a vitamin or mineral deficiency we recommend MICRONUTRIENT TESTING so your licensed dietitian nutritionist can design a supplement regimen for you specific to your vitamin and mineral needs.

How much does nutrition testing cost and how do I schedule an appointment

You can schedule a nutrition testing appointment on each of the Nutrition Testing Links below each service. Nutrition testing is done in our Alexandria office with our DEXA SCAN technician and Christine Haas MS LDN on Wednesdays and Fridays between 10 and 2. Some Saturdays are available by request.

2. Nutrition Counseling with a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist

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, your licensed dietitian nutritionist may recommend one of our weight loss programs, if you need more guidance with meal plans and recipes she may recommend weekly meal plans with recipes and grocery lists and our Lose Fat Weight e-book or one of our other e-books such as our LowFODMAP Diet E-Book for patients with IBS or All Healthy Portions, a weight management e-book for children and teens.

Follow-up virtual or in-office nutrition counseling sessions

Your licensed 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.

How much does nutrition counseling cost and how do I schedule an appointment

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.
