Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my appointment be?
Typically an initial appointment takes between 1- 1.5 hours. I like to ask lots of questions relating to your food and lifestyle habits. This helps me to tailor a plan that is unique to you.
Can you explain what happens in an appointment?
During your first appointment I ask several questions about food habits, lifestyle, stress management, physical activity, type pf work you do and so on. These questions help me to know you better. I will then assess your needs and share them with you so you can understand your needs. Towards the end of the appointment you and me will come up with a plan that is unique to your needs. My goal is to make the plan work for you.
What type of payments do you accept?
I will accept either cash or VISA.
Will you give me meal plan?
It depends on the purpose of your appointment. I do not make meal plans. However, we can come up with a meal plan together.
Are you a Registered Dietitian or Nutritionist?
I am a Registered Dietitian and I am regulated by a College just like physicians. Nutritionists are not regulated by any College.
What do Registered Dietitians do?
Dietitians are highly qualified professionals educated in science, management, human development, and health of populations. As trusted professionals, dietitians fill many roles, depending on where they work. Some examples include:
- Nutrition specialists who counsel and support clients to make changes in their eating habits to promote health and prevent chronic illness such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, cancer
- Policy makers who advise government at all levels on population-wide strategies to improve the health of Canadians such as school nutrition guidelines, sodium reduction in processed foods, advertising to children
- Leaders in all aspects of food systems, including the safety and availability of our food, food service management, and food production and marketing
- Researchers who discover new and better ways to enhance patient care, promote health and prevent nutrition-related illnesses
- Educators who prepare future dietitians and other health care professionals for practice

What will you do with my personal health information?
All health information shared during the appointments is strictly confidential. If I need to share any details with your physician I will confirm with you first.
Can I call or email you for any nutrition questions I may have?
Absolutely. I would prefer an email since I can reply when I am available. I typically respond within 1 business day.
Can I connect with you after my visits are over?
Absolutely. I will answer any questions you may have. However, If your question requires individual attention I will prefer that you book a consultation appointment.
