What is Telehealth?

Are you finding it difficult to make nutrition a priority in your life? We might have just the thing for you!

Telehealth is a very flexible platform of virtual nutrition counseling – and it’s now offered at the Newtown Athletic Club! Meet from anywhere with NAC RD, Lisa James using our virtual platform.

You can opt for phone appointments or use our HIPAA certified telehealth mobile app to have a virtual face-to-face appointment with Lisa James.

This program is geared to meet the needs of the busy lifestyle of most Americans.  It allows flexibility with scheduling, such as on your break or lunch, or even after dinner or on the weekends. Clients enjoy saving tons of time driving to the dietitian’s office.

Common questions about Telehealth…

1. Can my insurance be used for telehealth?

Often times insurance companies fully cover nutrition counseling – in person or telehealth.

2. Is the telehealth platform used HIPAA compliant and secure?

Yes!  We use a company that has secured communication and video conferencing.  You can rest easy that your personal health information (PHI) is safe.

3. Do I have to use video or can I just do a phone call?

We are equipped to do video chat and phone calls. It is completely up to you.
