Yes. We feel it is of utmost importance to maintain patient privacy and keep information secure. Amwell is designed to be a private, secure, HIPAA-compliant tool that allows you to safely and confidentially consult with a dietitian online.

Yes. Appointments with Amwell dieticians can be made using the self-scheduling feature in the app or by calling 1‑844‑SEE‑DOCS. Our team of dietitians have daytime, evening, and weekend appointments for your convenience.

No. The cost is the same no matter when you visit with a registered dietitian/nutritionist.

A typical nutrition visit on Amwell is 30 minutes, but you can schedule follow‑up appointments with your dietitian/nutritionist should you need more than one session to address your concerns.

With the Amwell web or mobile app, you can select a registered dietitian/nutritionist of your choice to address common nutrition questions and concerns from the privacy and comfort of your own home. Amwell’s nutritional services are available nationwide.

Registered dietitians are nutritionists but not all nutritionists are registered dietitians. Virtually anyone can call himself/herself a “nutritionist” regardless of education or training. All of our nutritionists are registered dietitians (RDs). RDs receive extensive training that combines academic preparation with hands-on, practical patient experience. RDs must complete a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, participate in a practice program involving direct patient care, and pass a national registration exam.

Here are a few reasons people go online to see a dietitian/nutritionist:

  • “I need nutrition advice to incorporate with my training plan.”
  • “I want to look good and eat well in a way that fits my busy lifestyle.”
  • “I want to lose weight and need some nutrition tips to help me reach my goal.”
  • “I am a mom‑to‑be and I’m eager to learn more about eating for both myself and my baby.”
  • “I am looking for ways to boost my energy throughout the day.”
  • “I am looking for new ways to keep my family healthy.”
  • “I want tips for easy meal planning and healthy snacks.”
  • “I want to watch what I eat, but not sacrifice my favorite foods.”
  • “I want to learn what to eat to prevent chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.”
  • “I am looking for nutrition tips to help with my chronic condition.”
  • “I need help determining nutrition and diet facts from fads.”
