Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a dietitian and nutritionist?
A dietitian is client centered, research based and accredited with the College of Dietitians of Ontario (CDO). Registered Dietitian (RD) will:
- have a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition
- have completed a year internship with an accredited hospital
- have written the accredited exam with CDO
- is qualified to work in interdisciplinary teams with doctors, dieticians, psychologists and exercise physiologists
Are registered dietitians covered by insurance?
Some health insurance companies provide coverage for counseling by a Registered Dietitian. It all depends on which provider and plan your Human Resources representative has chosen. Speak with the HR representative in your company or with your benefits provider directly to determine for which services you are covered.
Credit card or e-transfer payments are accepted.
How does Telehealth work? Is it secure and safe?
Telehealth software systems allow practitioners to care for their patients through live video consultations. Just like in a clinic, dietitians can arrange appointments with individuals or groups, recommend treatments, and offer follow-up care—all through a secure, high-quality video and audio connection.
