POLICY ON FEES & PRICE LIST (Weight Loss, Antiaging, Chronic Conditions)

Below you will find our Policy On Fees. If you have any questions feel free to give us a call at (205) 915-0474. We love answering questions...especially YOURS! Fees for our services are listed in SERVICES and in the PAYMENT CENTER.


To be favorable to all my patients I must require any rescheduling or cancellations to be made 24 hours in advance of confirmed appointments.

Payment for nutritional counseling is expected at the time of the visit, unless a patient has made prior arrangements with me.  If payment with cash, debit or credit card at the end of the consultation is not possible, patients are asked to bring this to my attention BEFORE nutritional counseling has begun. (I do not accept personal checks, business checks or e-checks as form of payment.)

If a patient fails to pay for the nutritional care he or she receives at the time of the visit, I will be unable to provide that patient with his or her nutritional regimen until payment is received.  

If a patient’s inability to pay at the time of his or her visit is not brought to my attention until the nutritional counseling session is underway, the patient will be required to make payment up-front at subsequent visits. In addition, a $5 fee will be charged to mail any materials.  I do not release written patient education materials in regard to a nutritional plan I create until fees have been paid.

Fees for telephone sessions are required to be paid at the beginning of the session (or beforehand... in order to secure your appointment, depending upon our schedule demands). The security of your financial information is very important to us. We do not keep your financial information on file. We shred your credit/debit card information immediately and all payments are processed securely through PayPal. You may also pay fees through the Payment Center of this website, located under FOR PATIENTS.
