Getting Started

What to Expect:

During individual counseling sessions, a registered dietitian will discuss your medical history and current eating habits and provide you with nutrition guidance based on the best available scientific research and your specific health needs. Depending on your individual needs, you may be scheduled for follow-up visits for additional nutrition education and support.

Your dietitian may help you make lifestyle changes in areas of meal planning, food preparation, physical activity, and more. Our goal is to help you create a sustainable nutrition plan that will work with you and your lifestyle for long-term health improvement, not to judge your food preferences or force you into a strict diet plan.

How to Schedule an Appointment:

A physician’s referral is required to see a registered dietitian. Contact your physician and request a completed referral to be faxed along with relevant medical history to (208) 528-1934. Once your referral is received, we’ll contact you to schedule your one-on-one nutrition appointment.

Please note, appointments are based on availability. Initial sessions are typically a one-hour visit. Follow-up visits generally last about 30 minutes.
