FAQs

Karyn will ask you about your goals, and reasons for making the appointment. She’ll review your medical history, including blood work, and any medications/supplements you’re currently taking. Then she’ll inquire about your lifestyle to get a sense of your stress levels, sleep patterns, energy levels, exercise, and gastrointestinal function. You’ll also discuss what an average day looks like in terms of your food choices.
Before the end of your appointment Karyn will provide preliminary feedback, and within 24-hours you will receive a follow-up e-mail detailing recommended next steps.  Karyn will recommend re-connecting again within ~2 weeks to facilitate discussion about your progress.

No, some clients just want a quick sounding board for their current plan, and Karyn is happy to help, but two sessions are generally the recommended minimum.
The second session includes review of more specific recommendations to your own circumstances and health status, and you’ll walk away with more tools with which to optimize your dietary and lifestyle choices.

Everyone has different needs; for some accountability is a big factor, for others its more about facilitating behavior change or just being informed of the recommendations for a specific condition. After review of your case Karyn will be able to advise further regarding the estimated number of appointments required.

No, Karyn does not accept insurance.
Many of Karyn’s patients use their Flexible Saving/Health Saving Accounts to pay for their visits. Nutrition counseling can be a very cost-effective investment in your long-term health. If better nutrition enables you to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol, or get your weight in check, it can potentially save you thousands of dollars in medications and other care down the road.  Note, the CPT code for nutrition counseling is 99402.
