Frequently Asked Questions
How do you see clients?
My office is virtual (and was even before 2020!). I see clients using a HIPAA compliant platform called Doxy.Me. Forget taking a half-day every time you need an appointment. Fit in an appointment on your actual lunch break, or from anywhere in the world.
When are appointments available?
My hours vary by the day and week, but I take appointments early morning, midday and evening, as well as offer some weekend options. You can schedule a discovery call here: https://thepregnancydietitian.com/schedule/.
Do you take insurance? What forms of payment do you accept?
I do not accept insurance. However, I can provide you with a coded invoice you can submit for reimbursement, upon request. You will need to check with your insurance company ahead of time to determine what services are covered. I accept credit cards, including Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). Payment is due at the time of booking.
How much does it cost?
I understand the desire to not experience sticker shock, or waste your time learning more if your budget isn’t flexible. But before we get into the cost, you should ask yourself two other questions. First, “what is it costing me to NOT meet with a dietitian?” Time, energy, money, etc. And second, “if I knew meeting with Katie would produce results, what is that worth to me?” The short answer is that initial consultations start at $195, but you will get your best results from on-going support, which starts at $149 per month. To learn more about the costs of my services, as well as payment plan options, schedule a discovery call: https://thepregnancydietitian.com/schedule/.
What is your cancellation policy?
I have a 24-hour cancellation / rescheduling policy. If you miss your appointment, cancel or change your appointment with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged for your appointment.
This policy is in place out of respect for both me and my clients. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice are difficult to fill. By giving last-minute notice or no notice at all, you prevent someone else from being able to schedule into that time slot.
For more information on my policies, please see my terms and conditions page: https://thepregnancydietitian.com/terms/.
I have a simple question about nutrition – can I email you or DM you on Instagram?
You can find a lot of great (free) information on my blog: https://thepregnancydietitian.com/blog/ or Instagram feed: https://www.instagram.com/the.pregnancy.dietitian/. However, I do not provide any personal advice over email. This is to protect YOU. Without knowing your situation and medical history, I cannot offer any personalized recommendations. If you want to learn more about working together, schedule a discovery call: https://thepregnancydietitian.com/schedule/.
I just want a meal plan to follow. Will you do that?
Simple answer: no. There are two reasons. First, the time it takes to put together a personalized meal plan far exceeds what you’re willing to pay for it (trust me). If you don’t want a personalized one, use Google, there are plenty of free ones out there. Second, my goal is to empower you to make healthy decisions on your own, not train you to follow a meal plan.
