What to Expect:

All sessions are being conducted virtually at this time.

Initial Consultation (60-75 minutes): Registered Dietitian (RD) conducts an in-depth intake of medical and nutritional history. We discuss any medical issues, specific eating habits, food allergies, eating preferences, weight loss history, specific goals and all other important information.

We do not perform blood work. However, we do recommend that clients bring or send a copy of their lab work from their provider. This way, we have a clear picture of the client’s medical and nutritional status. We are then able to provide you with a customized meal and lifestyle plan to start implementing.

Follow-up sessions (45 minutes): We discuss progress, challenges, what worked, what didn’t work and anything else you want to address; each week builds upon the next until we meet your ultimate goals.

Payment: Juliana Shalek, MS RD CDN does not participate in any insurance plans through The Nutrition Suite LLC. She can provide you with a Medical Nutrition Therapy Super Bill that you then submit to your insurance. If you have out-of-network benefits, you may get reimbursed for some or all of our sessions, however, this is not guaranteed. The Nutrition Suite LLC is not responsible if insurance does not reimburse you for our services. It is recommended that you call your insurance plan for an explanation of benefits prior to your first session.
