  • What is the difference between a Registered Dietitian and a nutritionist?
    All Registered Dietitians are nutritionists, but not all nutritionists are Registered Dietitians. A Registered Dietitian is a credentialed healthcare practitioner who can legally provide medical nutrition therapy for a variety of health conditions. All Registered Dietitians must complete a minimum of 1200 hours of clinical supervised practice, pass a national board exam, and as of 2024, all Registered Dietitians must have a minimum of a Masters degree. Depending on the state, the title of 'nutritionist' may not be regulated or come with specific credentialing requirements.
  • How are appointments conducted?
    Appointments are conducted via telehealth utilizing a HIPPA compliant platform for video appointments. Patients may opt to have their appointment over the phone if preferred.
  • How much time should I expect for my appointments?
    Initial appointments are 60 minutes. Follow-up visits can range from 15 minutes to 60 minutes, but they are generally 30 minutes.
  • How long will my treatment take?
    The length of treatment varies by condition and your body's response to the treatment protocol. Twelve weeks is generally a good benchmark for many health conditions. Patients who reach a "maintenance phase" usually follow-up every 3-4 months to make sure they are staying on track with their goals.
  • How do you assess my nutritional needs?
    I complete a comprehensive nutritional assessment and evaluation based on several factors including your medical history, demographics, symptoms, relationship with food, sleep quality and stress levels. Some patients opt to complete functional nutrition testing while working together which also sheds light on possible nutritional needs.
  • Will I have to take supplements?
    As a dietitian, I believe food first, but a patient may require a combination of food and supplements to restore their body's functioning and support optimal nutrient stores. It is my goal to make supplementation short term and as minimal as possible.
  • What types of testing do you offer?
    The most common functional lab tests that I run include micronutrient and cardiovascular focused blood panels.
  • Do you collaborate with other doctors and specialists?
    Absolutely! One of my favorite aspects of working in integrative medicine is collaborating with other healthcare providers to support patients with a truly holistic approach. I often co-treat with primary care physicians, functional medicine doctors, Chinese medicine practitioners/acupuncturists, physical therapists, behavioral therapists, personal trainers, and others.
  • Do you take insurance?
    I am currently in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and BlueChoice Plans. *Insurance applies to one-on-one sessions only* There is an additional, one-time fee of $125 for a personalized nutrition plan, and a monthly membership fee of $49/month. Please call or email the office at info@sheinnutrition.com for more information.
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    All major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover), HSA, FSA, and Zelle.
