How to Schedule a Nutrition Consult
To schedule a nutrition consult, ask your physician or provider for a referral, then call central scheduling at 206-860-2208 to make and appointment. The first visit will be 60 minutes long, and all subsequent visits are usually 30 minutes. Please keep a one week record of your food and beverage intake and bring it to your first nutrition visit.
Most major insurance companies include coverage for nutrition services with a registered dietitian for a medical condition in which dietary adjustment has a therapeutic role, and when it is prescribed by a physician or physician extender (i.e. physician assistant, nurse practitioner). Check with your insurance company to find out what your specific plan offers.
