Virtual Dietitian Sessions

A virtual appointment is like any other, just less time in a waiting room and virtual visits come at no additional cost.

  • Unlike a physio or osteopath, Dietitians have no need to physically touch their clients.
  • Studies show client satisfaction with virtual health is high as they are in their everyday environment, and more relaxed at home as compared to a clinic room.
  • Everything you need to enjoy your virtual session is now build into your selfie camera or data connections.

For clients, the advantages of virtual health are clear:

  • You typically can get an appointment sooner, in the safety of your own home or workplace,
  • You can save time and money on petrol and parking
  • In some situations, virtual sessions can avoid a loss in wages for missing work.

Ever run late for an appointment?  Virtual sessions make it easier for you be on time, and in turn, your Dietitian.

What to expect during a Virtual Session with a Dietitian

These appointments are just like standard, in-person appointments, except that you are speaking to your dietitian via video conference from your home. Depending on your conversation, you can receive a diagnosis, learn about different treatment options, and get menu options.

During your virtual appointment, your dietitian will ask about your concerns and symptoms. Sometimes, your dietitian may recommend that you make an appointment for an in-person test or exam. But in many cases, virtual visits are all you need to address less pressing health concerns.

Video sessions don't just let you and the Dietitian to see each other’s faces. Dietitians are also able to bring up engaging and interactive information and guides and a host of other supplemental information of value.
