Meet with a nutrition expert. Our full-time primary care dietitian and functional nutritionist, Wendimere Reilly, RDN LDN provides both wellness care and medical nutritional therapy for those with chronic diseases. Our Medical Director, Dr. Jaime Gonzalez (Dr. G) understands and values the importance of nutrition as it relates to overall health and well-being. Urban Health is the first primary care medical practice in the country to incorporate nutritional services in all aspects of the medical practice.
One of Wendimere’s main responsibilities is to provide the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit for all our patients. This allows for many of our patients to be seen by a dietitian at least once every year and earlier identification of those at nutritional risk. If you have not yet had your Annual Wellness Visit call the office today to schedule before the end of the year. This is an included benefit (ie, no co-pay) so don’t miss out!
Wendimere regularly interacts with all of our providers to ensure optimizing nutritional status is a priority in our medical office. All patients now have access to in office nutritional services for a small fee. Please ask for more details on your next appointment.
Does Insurance Cover Nutrition Services? Certain nutritional services are covered by insurance, including Diabetes, Chronic Kidney Disease and Weight Loss Counseling for those with a BMI of 30 or higher.
