Got Questions? We’ve Got Answers.

See below for answers to some of our most common questions. You can also call us anytime 24 hours a day at 1‑844‑SEE‑DOCS for questions about our services or to speak to a doctor about your symptoms or conditions.

  • Is my visit private and secure?

    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.

  • Do I need to schedule an appointment for online nutrition counseling?

    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.

  • How much does a visit with a dietitian/nutritionist cost?

    Visits cost $70, but may be less since some insurance companies cover telehealth visits. Contact your Human Resources department or health insurance company to see if your visit is covered.

  • Will I be charged more if I talk to a dietitian/nutritionist on weekends, holidays or at night?

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

  • How long is a typical online nutrition counseling visit on Amwell?

    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.

  • What is online nutrition counseling?

    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.

  • What is the difference between a registered dietitian (RD) and a nutritionist?

    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.

  • Why would I pursue online nutrition counseling?

    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.”
  • Who are the dietitians and nutritionists?

    Amwell’s nutritionists and registered dietitians have been hand-selected and certified in telehealth to deliver the best nutritional advice to you and your family. The online nutrition counseling services provided by Amwell are provided by a network within the Amwell Medical Group, a primary care practice with a national network of U.S. board-certified clinicians devoted to video telehealth.
