What does a dietitian do?
Dietitians are the experts to consult when it comes to specific, personalized and evidence-based information and recommendations required. They translate medical nutrition science into practical, appropriate and affordable food guidelines to help manage your condition or disease or to prevent disease.

Do I need a doctor’s referral letter in order to see a dietitian?
No, you can see a dietitian without consulting your doctor first. If necessary, the dietitian will encourage you to see your doctor for specific reasons and information.
Can my consultations be claimed from my medical aid?
Yes, our practice is contracted-in with all medical aids except PSEMAS, therefore we claim directly from your medical aid according to the amount of time spent with you face-to-face as well as for the compilation and revision of meal plans and for email or telephonic queries related to medical nutrition therapy.
Please note that there is N$300 co-payment.
Can I bring along my husband, wife or partner to my appointment?
Yes, you are welcome to do that. In fact, we actually recommend it in order to get better insight into the recommendations that would suit you best. If you both require an individualized meal plan, it is best to book two consecutive appointments to allow enough time to cover all important information.
Do you see patients in the afternoons or weekends?
Yes, but only by special arrangement with either of the dietitians.
