About Nutrition Works
Nutrition Works! LLC has served the greater Concord, New Hampshire area for more than 20 years. Ann Petersson became the new owner in 2019.
Nutrition Works! is located in the Statesman Building in downtown Concord, New Hampshire. Our offices are on the third floor. Take the elevator or stairs to Suites 303 and 304.
Yes, we do! This allows us to provide nutrition counseling and support services to clients anywhere in New Hampshire and beyond.
At Nutrition Works!, we serve clients throughout New Hampshire. Many of our licensed, registered dietitians are also licensed to practice in Massachusetts and Maine. We can see clients in other specific states depending on licensure laws. For instance, we are able to provide telehealth nutrition counseling services to clients in Arizona, California, Colorado, Michigan, and Virginia.
We work with clients of all ages, shapes, sizes, and gender identities. Our team of licensed, registered dietitian nutritionists offers gender-affirming care to individuals and their families.
As with all of our clients, we provide compassionate, evidence-based care to those experiencing gender dysphoria or those who are transitioning, taking a holistic approach while coordinating care with other providers as needed.
We love to work with children and their families! We have a registered dietitian on our team who works with prenatal, maternity, and postnatal clients as well.
Yes. We carry professional liability insurance to cover all dietitians at the practice.
Absolutely. There are no laws around education and licensure for nutritionists. Registered Dietitians (i.e., Registered Dietitian Nutritionists) have education requirements that include achieving a bachelor’s degree with a specific curriculum, completing an internship, and passing the Registered Dietitian Exam. We must maintain our credentials by completing continuing education courses.
A better question might be why shouldn’t you see a dietitian?
A registered dietitian can help even the most health-conscious with not only creating better eating habits for specific problems, but also other factors that go into health as a whole as well. How’s your energy? How are you sleeping? How’s your gut health? Are you drinking enough water? How can we make your day-to-day routines and meal prepping easier? There are so many reasons to see a dietitian whether it be for one visit or for years of accountability and staying on top of current research and recommendations.
It depends on where you live and that state’s licensure laws. Fill out our contact form so we can discuss what we can offer.
At Nutrition Works!, we offer a variety of nutrition counseling and coaching services, medical nutrition therapy, group classes, speaking engagements, presentations, and more. See our Services page for more information.
Nutrition counseling is part of Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) which is only provided by Registered Dietitians. There are no specific requirements around nutrition coaching.
You may lose weight when you work with us; however, that is not our primary goal of working together. Diets do not work. We focus on nutrition counseling which includes behavior change and lifestyle modifications.
This is what we do quite well. Coordination of care with your medical and behavioral team is all part of seeing you as a whole person.
Of course! Fill out our contact form so we can reach out to set a time to have a 15-minute conversation to learn more.
Our licensed, registered dietitians are available to speak in workplaces, communities, and schools, or to sports teams and other groups. We can tailor our program to your needs and deliver it in-person or virtually. Learn more about booking Nutrition Works! for a speaking engagement.
Policies & Procedures
We accept most insurance plans; however, if you prefer to pay us directly, our rate is $160 per hour billed in 15 minute increments. The first appointment is typically 90 minutes. Read more about our rates.
We can meet in one of our two office suites at 18 N Main Street or virtually on a HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform.
The first appointment may be 60-90 minutes. Follow up appointments are typically about 50 minutes.
Absolutely. Many clients see us regularly for months or even years.
It’s a good idea to have a referral. Some insurance plans require it. Your PCP or Behavioral Health Provider can provide specific diagnosis codes we need to bill insurance.
You will be charged the full amount of the time we are scheduled to meet if you cancel or reschedule your appointment with less than 48 hours notice or do not show up in person or via telehealth. Read more about our cancellation policy.
Yes. To ensure that we receive payment of any deductibles, copayments, charges, or fees for agreed-to services not covered by your insurance, we ask for credit card information (or other appropriate security). No amount will be charged to your card until such non-covered deductibles, copayments, cost shares, charges, or fees have been incurred.
Your credit card information or other appropriate security will be stored securely and destroyed when all of your deductibles, copayments, charges, or fees for agreed to services not covered by your insurance have been paid and you are no longer a client at Nutrition Works! LLC.
Preparing for Your First Appointment
Please be sure to check your insurance coverage before coming in for your appointment. Even if you have an excellent insurance policy it doesn’t mean you have coverage for nutritional services.
To verify your nutrition coverage, call the 800 number on the back of your medical insurance card and ask to speak with a representative from member services. Provide them with the full name of the Nutrition Works dietitian with whom you have an appointment.
Please ask the representative the following questions:
- Do I have nutrition services on my current insurance policy?
- Is my diagnosis covered? [You can get this diagnosis from your doctor] Or ask about Diagnosis Code Z71.3 which is Dietary Counseling.
- How many covered visits do I have per calendar year?
- What’s considered a calendar year for my current policy?
- Do I have a co-pay or deductible for nutrition services?
We’re happy to submit your claim to insurance; however, we assume no responsibility for the verification of your benefits. If the visit is not covered, then you will be expected to pay for the visit.
