What is a Registered Dietitian? A Registered Dietitian is a licensed professional who has a Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition, has completed a Dietetic Internship, and successfully passed the Dietetic Registration Exam. The Dietitian maintains her licensure via continuing education credits. Note that a ‘nutritionist’ is not a licensed professional. Anyone who has completed coursework in nutrition can call themselves a nutritionist.
What is a Certified Diabetes Educator? A Certified Diabetes Educator is a health professional who has extensive knowledge in the management of Diabetes. The person is required to complete 1000 hours of direct diabetes care, write a certification exam, and maintain certification through continuing education credit.
Do you accept insurance? Currently Olive Tree Nutrition LLC does not accept insurance. Sessions can be paid for via cash, check, or PayPal. Olive Tree Nutrition can provide its clients with a superbill which they could submit to their health insurance for possible reimbursement. A written note from your doctor indicating your diagnosis would be required for the superbill.
Where are the counseling sessions located? Counseling is currently done at an office beside Perimeter Mall, Atlanta, GA or from the comfort of your own home via Skype (can be downloaded to a computer for free).
How can a Registered Dietitian help me meet my nutrition and health goals? A Registered Dietitian can help simplify nutrition information to help you meet your nutrition and health goals. They help you understand food and how food choices affect your health, support you in developing healthy eating behaviors, provide you with the tools to create healthy meals, and teach you how to develop a healthy relationship with food and your body. An RD works alongside the healthcare team and your doctor, but usually spends a longer time with you (60 minute initial consult) to discuss your health goals and support you in making lifelong lifestyle changes.
