Long Island Nutritionist offers an individualized approach for each patient therefore the frequency and number of nutrition sessions really depends on your personal goals, your specific health goals, any relevant disease states and their current stage of management at the time of your initial consultation. Generally, patient's achieve better results when seen more frequently (once a week) as they are held more accountable and mindful. However, depending on the patient's personality, level of motivation, and budget we will work with you weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly, depending upon your needs. This approach provides an opportunity to work with you during real life eating situations that arise over time including holidays, birthdays, restaurant dining, weddings, vacations and more. As described, some patients need more follow-up than others — while the frequency varies from client to client, our dedication to you and your needs to achieve your goals are consistent.

In rare cases, there are costs associated with using insurance such as a small co-pay (~$25 on average). In these cases, you will be responsible for those fees once we receive an explanation of benefits from your insurance after the claim has been submitted. If your insurance requests a copay, we will reach out to you personally and you will be responsible for its payment at that time.
We also offer private pay services if your insurance does not cover sessions, please visit our "Services" tab and scroll down to "Insurance and Fees" for more information.
If we are out of network, we can provide you with a superbill for you to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. Reimbursement depends on your specific out-of-network benefits on your policy.
Yes! We accept Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and FSA as a method of payment as our nutrition services are a qualified medical expense.
