Your first appointment will last about 60-75 minutes to get a thorough understanding of your history, current issues, and to discuss your treatment options. We will discuss your health concerns in depth and answer all questions you have about your health and wellness.
Beve will review your labs and discuss “optimal” reference ranges for your lab results to monitor your progress.
Together, we will discuss and review your medications, nutrition supplements, and botanical or herbal medicines/supplements. These can impact your treatment, and may factor into your health issues or concerns.
While taking all of this into consideration, Beve will develop a Nutrition Care Plan summary for you to use between appointments for your ongoing care and progress. You will be able to ask questions and get any clarifications needed. Beve will help you understand your health issues, practical nutrition solutions and details about your customized Nutrition Care Plan, so you are fully informed.

Frequently Asked Questions:
- How many appointments will I need?
Beve will schedule to see you 2-3 weeks after your first appointment to monitor your progress and make any changes needed to your Nutrition Care Plan.
Most patients will need to meet with Beve 4-6 times per year or as often as once per month or every 2 weeks as needed.
- Will my health insurance pay for nutrition visits?
Most health insurance plans will pay for nutrition visits. Many plans do not require a co-pay or co-insurance.
Many health insurance plans pay for 4 visits up to 10 visits per year while others pay for monthly visits or unlimited visits. It will depend on your plan. Please contact your insurance company, as you may be surprised to find you have fully covered nutrition visits!
Please note that if you have an annual out-of-pocket deductible, you will need to meet the deductible before your visits are covered. Again, it is recommended to call the customer service number listed on the back of your insurance card for benefit information.
Nutrition visits are coded as 97802 – First or Initial Visit and 97803 – Follow-Up Visits.
- I am taking nutritional supplements, working out and still feeling tired and exhausted. What is going on? Can nutrition help?
Exhaustion, weight gain and fatigue are common signs of nutritional deficiencies like iron-deficiency, low vitamin D stores, and low vitamin B12. Routine labs may not show what is really happening to your body stores of these nutrients. You need specific labs done to find out which supplements you really need – and for how long. Some medications can interfere with the digestion and absorption of certain vitamins and minerals.
