    Our Approach

    We provide one-on-one nutritional consultations for people of all ages and activity levels, from collegiate athletes to weekend warriors. Our dietitian takes the time to get to know more about you than the sport you play. Our individualized approach considers your lifestyle, food preferences, health conditions, athletic goals, and more. We want to help you achieve your performance goals and stay healthy.

    Your First Appointment

    During your first meeting with your nutritional counselor, you will discuss your health history including previous sports injuries, current dietary habits, sports performance, and other goals. You can meet in person or virtually for your initial assessment. Many health insurance plans cover nutrition consultations. If yours does not, out-of-pocket options are available.

    Follow-Up Appointments

    After your first appointment, you will meet with your dietitian on a regular basis to assess your progress and make any necessary changes to your nutritional plan. The frequency of follow-up appointments depends on your individual needs and preferences.

    Access to Other Providers

    Proper nutrition can address dietary deficiencies like low iron, help speed recovery from an injury, and boost your energy and endurance. Some conditions, however, require additional treatments. As a patient at Duke Health, you have access to the full range of experts including orthopaedic surgeons, cardiologists, sports medicine doctors, physical therapists, and others.
