Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How much do nutrition services cost?

The cost for nutrition services is $65 the initial one-hour consult. Follow up visits are ½ hour and cost $40.

What payment methods are accepted?

Patients can pay using major credit cards, cash or by check.

Is nutrition counseling covered by insurance?

We do not accept insurance in the Wellness department. Some insurance companies do cover nutrition counseling but we do not submit for insurance in our office. Therefore coverage, if attempted, is between the client and their insurer. However, most employee flexible spending cards can be used.

Where do I come for appointments?

How can I check out the validity of nutrition advice I see on TV and in magazines?

Registered dietitians are nutrition experts that have a bachelor’s degree in dietetics and have completed an internship approved by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Having a professional degree in any other area does not qualify one as an expert in nutrition.

The U.S. National Library for Medicine’s MedlinePlus Guide to Healthy Web Surfing offers suggestions for evaluating the quality of health information on websites.

How much weight can I expect to lose realistically in a month?

The amount of weight or the speed of which you lose should not be the focus when taking action to address weight issues. Permanent behavior change will lead to desired weight loss. The amount of effort put towards reaching defined goals will be the factor that determines the speed and amount of weight lost.

What services are available to AAMC employees?

We have employee wellness health coaching for weight loss that is free for employees who are willing to commit for a minimum of six months to achieve agreed upon goals. We also run a 12-week Mayo Clinic Weight Loss Program that has an exercise component. This is offered to employees at a discounted rate of $100. Weight Watchers is available through the Energize program with payroll deduction as an option.
