Q’s and A’s
That’s great! Our Plant Powered Kidneys Facebook group is a wonderful group of supportive kidney warriors that want to eat a more plant-based diet.
I work with those that are prepared to make changes to their diet, be open to trying new things, and are motivated to keep their kidneys healthy.
You will need to have – ideally – a computer (laptop/desktop), tablet and/or smart phone for communication. All of our sessions are held virtually in your HIPAA-compliant client portal.
You will be provided with meal plans and recipes that you will be encouraged to use while making the transition to your best kidney diet.
I provide some of my clients with supplements, depending on their package and plan. If you are provided with supplements it is expected you discuss with your physician and take as directed.
Speaking of physician, you need to have a healthy relationship with your physician (read: go to your appointments as scheduled). I will not and cannot provide you the best service if you are not being followed by your nephrologist.
I am currently living in Oahu. However, I am taking all appointments virtually. I work with clients through secure video chat, messaging, and emailing.
You get to decide where you want to be when we chat. Some prefer using their lunch break, taking the time while their child is at an after-school program or daycare, in the morning before work,… it’s around YOUR schedule!
Each state has different requirements regarding dietitian licensure.
I am currently licensed in the states of;
- District of Columbia
Your state may or may not require I have a license prior to our work together. The best way for us to find out is hop on a call and chat.
Due to licensure laws of different countries, I am only allowed to work with clients within the United States in a one-to-one model. However, if you would still like to learn a ton of the information I share with private clients, you can be a part of my Plant-Powered Kidneys Program!
If you’d like to get an idea of what the meal plans look like for my clients and in the PPK group program, you can download a free 6-day plan here.
At this time I am only a Medicare provider. However, Medicare has strict rules when it comes to receiving services from a virtual dietitian. Read more here from Medicare about rules related to telehealth visits.
I can also provide you with a superbill (insurance term for medical receipt) that you can submit to your health insurance provider for reimbursement. Note: reimbursement is not guaranteed and benefits should be verified before working together.
I accept all major credit and debit cards, as well as HSA/FSA (health savings account) cards. You will be asked to provide a card to hold your appointments, but it will not be charged until we have determined your insurance coverage and best package or plan.
A superbill, otherwise known as a medical receipt, can be provided upon request.
Packages are customized after speaking with you to assure that what I provide you will be the best value.
Not everyone needs the same services or support, so after we talk, I can provide you with your customized kidney master plan to outline the details necessary to get you to your goals.
Prior to working with all clients, I provide a free kidney master plan call where I get to learn more about you and what you need to be successful on your kidney journey. To schedule your call, click here.
I can serve as a consultant and part of your dialysis team. If you are in the United States, you have a dietitian that is already part of your dialysis team. But if you are not seeing eye-to-eye or you would like a second opinion or help with your diet, we may be able to work together. Let’s chat to get to know each other and see if we’re a good fit!
