Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Registered Dietitian?

In the state of Texas anyone with an interest in nutrition may call themselves a “Nutritionist”.  The terms Registered Dietitian (RD) or Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) are reserved for those individuals who have completed a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, a dietetic internship with at least 1200 supervised hours, and passed a national registration exam.  RDs or RDNs must maintain their credentials by accumulating a minimum of 75 continuing education credits every 5 years.

Do you accept insurance?

At this time, I am able to accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Healthcare, and Humana health plans.  I'm in the process of adding other insurance companies, so stay tuned!

What if you don't accept my insurance?

If you have an insurance plan that I don't accept you will have to pay at the time of service.  However, I will provide you with a coded receipt for services (superbill) that you can submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.  Reimbursement is based on your policy’s standards. Please call your insurance company’s member services number to verify how reimbursement works under your current insurance policy.

What forms of payment are accepted?

I accept all major credit cards, check, or cash.  You may pay in person on the day of service or online.

Do you offer video sessions?

Yes! If you prefer not to leave the comfort of your home we can do all of your sessions via video conferencing.
