Which Service is Right for You?

Virtual Care is a convenient option for patients who want to discuss health concerns that don’t require being physically present. During a Telenutrition appointment, you’ll connect with a nutrition expert, who can help you achieve your personal goals through nutrition coaching or, when appropriate, nutrition counseling. During a Virtual Visit, you’ll see a healthcare provider to discuss lifestyle choices and habits that impact your overall health, manage chronic (but well-controlled) conditions such as hypertension or allergies, or simply renew your prescriptions.

What to Expect

We know eating healthy is important for both physical and mental wellbeing, but what does “eating healthy” mean? It may mean something different to everyone. Your nutrition expert will take your dietary restrictions, varying health conditions (when appropriate), relationship with food, culture, ability and desire to cook, and more into consideration to teach you how to nourish your body on your terms. This two-way video chat gives you the flexibility to work with a nutrition expert online from the comfort of your home, or anywhere else you have internet connection — no waiting room, no hassle.

While there’s an enormous amount of dietary and nutrition information available, it can sometimes be overwhelming and confusing to understand what is right for you. We use a hands-on approach to help you easily understand what information is accurate and relevant to your unique situation. Whether you’re looking for ways to add more nutrients to your meals or want answers to your burning nutrition questions, we can help. Our team is specially trained to provide expert guidance on making complex nutrition science easy and actionable. Many individuals find their nutrition goals are best supported by working with their nutrition expert over the course of three to six appointments. This gives time to implement in real life what is learned in an appointment and add in new nutrition skills when ready.

Our team of nutrition experts can provide a variety of nutrition coaching services through Telenutrition, such as:

  • Healthy alternatives, delicious recipes and meal ideas that work with your busy schedule
  • Guidance on nutritious foods to add to your grocery list
  • Advice on how to navigate the grocery store
  • Tips for feeding your family nourishing food while sticking to a budget
