“I have lost 110 lbs and I have done it so easily. My theory is that HFCS was my kryptonite and once I learned to mostly avoid it, it was all smooth sailing. I was literally taking every night at 1 AM starving ( in my head ) and feeding that monster. I had a few other food cravings that had to be dealt with, but it was all a matter of making smarter choices and keeping the really bad stuff out of the house. In 1981 I was just out of the Army and maybe 205 lbs. I got married, got a desk job and began putting on about 5# each year. Fast forward 30 some years and I was heavy. I finally took action.”
“This is a Thank You. I hired you folks in 2015 and I got serious about dieting on Jan 1, 2016. It was your dietitian that taught me about food labels, shopping, pre-prepping food, bad food, good food and learning by experimenting.”
“I went from 355# to a current weight of 245#. My activity level has increased dramatically. My wife and I actually went backpacking for 4 days last month, slept on the ground and had a great time. I could not do that 4 years ago.”

What is an RDN?
A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) is a nutrition professional that has undergone extensive education and training to become certified to practice and provide Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT). A Dietitian’s job as a whole is to translate the complex science of nutrition into practical everyday solutions for healthy living. This is not to be confused with anyone who can call themselves a ‘nutritionist’ – as this is not regulated. The RDN designation highlights the fact that all registered dietitians are nutritionists but not all nutritionists are registered dietitians.
- Completed a minimum of a bachelor’s degree at a US regionally accredited university or college and course work accredited or approved by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
- Completed an ACEND-accredited supervised practice program at a health-care facility, community agency, or a foodservice corporation or combined with undergraduate or graduate studies. Typically, a practice program will run six to 12 months in length.
- Passed a national examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). For more information regarding the examination, refer to CDR’s website at www.cdrnet.org.
We’ve got Answers!
You Want Help Managing Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, or Other Chronic Disease
An RDN can help you understand your condition and how the foods you choose might affect it. Plus, a registered dietitian nutritionist works with you to create an eating plan that has the nutrients needed to manage your condition.
You Are Thinking of Having or Have Had Gastric Bypass Surgery
Since your stomach can only manage small servings after surgery, it’s tricky to get the nutrients that your body needs. As a part of your health care team, an RDN helps you make changes to your eating plan without settling for less taste.
You Have Digestive Problems
Working closely with you and your doctor, a registered dietitian nutritionist helps fine-tune your diet. Guidance can help you make choices that do not aggravate your condition. For example, limiting fried foods or caffeinated and carbonated drinks.
You're Pregnant, Trying to Get Pregnant, or a New Mom
Meet with an RDN to make sure you get the nutrients you need for a healthy pregnancy. And, after the baby comes, a registered dietitian nutritionist can help make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need for you and your little one.
Unsure What You Can Eat Because of Celiac Disease, Food Allergies, Lactose Intolerance, or Another Condition?
It’s easy to be overwhelmed by what you think you can’t eat. And that can lead to a boring diet that doesn’t give your body the nutrition it needs. An RDN can teach you strategies about identifying foods to avoid and help you find substitutions to keep your diet balanced and tasty.
Your Teenager Has Issues with Food and Eating Healthfully
As part of the treatment team, RDNs counsel individuals with eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia.
You Need to Gain or Lose Weight
Fad diets may sound like the quick ticket to weight gain or loss, but they rarely work for very long. An RDN can suggest calorie sources for healthy weight gain. Or, design a personalized weight loss plan, including diet changes and physical activity — while still eating all your favorite foods.
You're Caring for an Aging Parent
An RDN can help with food or drug interactions, proper hydration, special diets for hypertension, and changing taste buds as you age.
You Want Practical Lifestyle Advice
Need help sorting through the facts and fiction of nutrition headlines? Learn how to read labels at the supermarket, discover how healthy cooking can be inexpensive; learn how to dine out without ruining your eating plan, and how to resist workplace temptations. When you see an RD or RDN, the last thing you’ll get is one-size-fits-all diet advice. After learning about your health history, favorite foods, and eating and exercise habits, an RD or RDN will help you set goals and prioritize. Follow-up visits will focus on maintenance and monitoring your progress.
You Realize the Need to Feed Your Family Healthier Foods but You Do Not Cook
A registered dietitian nutritionist can teach you how to plan and prepare meals in a simple, healthful, and convenient way.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The number of total sessions recommended varies by patient, based on their medical conditions, goals, budget, and adherence to recommendations. Everyone is different! We do recommend a minimum of 3 sessions to get you started, as one session usually is never enough! You are more likely to be successful in changing behaviors with multiple sessions — change doesn’t happen overnight!
Do You Accept Insurance?
Yes! We are currently accepting Medicare, United Healthcare Medicare, and Cigna Healthsprings, however, in order to be covered you must have Diabetes or Chronic Kidney Disease.
We do request that your medical records be sent by your physician. We are working on currently getting credentialed with other insurance providers as they open their networks to Registered Dietitians, so we hope to be able to accept others soon! In the meantime, please feel free to call your health insurance carrier and ask for an out of network exception.
What Is Your Cancellation Policy?
Our provider’s time is reserved for you. We do not double book our patients in order to provide adequate time for each individual. We strive for exceptional care through individual attention.

- Exceptions to this policy will be reserved for verifiable emergencies only and will be at the sole discretion of management.
- Repeated No Show appointments will result in the discharge from our practice.
