WORKING WITH KELLY SCHMIDT:
With our move to Columbus, Ohio, we thought we would post some of our FAQs to help people understand the steps involved in working together.
WHEN AND WHERE DO YOU SEE CLIENTS?
I am located in Bexley, OH and meet with clients virtually or in the library or a quiet coffee location.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN A CONSULT?
An initial consultation will last an hour and will include a full nutritional assessment- diet history (Kelly will request a 3-day intake prior to the meeting), recent lab review/discussion, weight history, family history, lifestyle, stress and sleep management, patient goals and patient needs. After this session, Kelly provides her clients with a personal eBook of information that serves as the foundation of working together.
Nutrition follow-up appointments will include nutrition recommendations (meals, snacks, recipes), nutrition counseling, lab discussions, support and more.
HOW OFTEN DO WE MEET?
Each client’s needs vary. Most clients meet with Kelly every 2 weeks.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Before your appointment please fill out your paperwork. Kelly will email you all of the forms necessary in advance. These forms include Food Log_Questions Form and Client Agreement.
WHAT PAYMENT METHODS ARE ACCEPTED?
Check, Venmo, Chase Quickpay, Credit Card (Kelly uses Square), PayPal and Cash are all accepted.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
No, I do not take insurance. However, I can provide you with a “Superbill” to submit to insurance for out of network benefits so that you can receive reimbursement directly from your insurance company.
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REGISTERED DIETITIAN (RD/RDN) AND A NUTRITIONIST?
Yes. A Dietitian (RD/RDN) has obtained a minimum of a BS in Nutritional Sciences, completed 1200 hours of supervised practice in various fields, as well as, has passed a National Boards Exam administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. Registered Dietitians must complete continuing education to maintain their license.
A nutritionist is not a national title and there are no guidelines for being a nutritionist.
HOW CAN I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
Email Kelly and please note what type of service you are interested in and what times and days are best for your schedule.
