Frequently Asked Questions About Nutrition Counseling
What is the difference between a nutritionist and a registered dietitian?
In Ontario, anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, whereas registered dietitian is a regulated title. Registered Dietitians are accountable to provincial colleges for safe, competent services and have rigorous training standards, with a 4-year degree, practical training program & completion of a national exam.
What should I expect from an appointment with a dietitian?
A dietitian will translate the evidence-based science of nutrition into real-life strategies helping you to distinguish between fact and fiction. They will create a personalized plan for you, helping you to set small, sustainable goals to meet your larger nutrition & health-related goals.
How often should you see a dietitian?
"This is individual! Most people would benefit from seeing a dietitian at least once to ensure they're getting the right balance of nutrients to optimize health. For others managing weight or chronic diseases, more frequent appointments are beneficial, from every 2-3 weeks initially to every 3-6 months once a plan is established. Many private insurance companies cover at least partial costs of dietitian services."
Why is nutrition essential?
Nutrition is essential for basically everything! From maintaining energy levels, preventing and managing most chronic diseases, influencing mood and mental outlook and maintaining all body functions (from large organs to bone to nail growth), nutrition plays a role.

Marshall was very helpful and professional and worked with me on a very painful knee injury. i began a few months ago barely able to bend it or walk up and down stairs and have improved greatly with his program. i am now able to run up and downstairs with no problems and am almost back to 100%. the receptionists are also accommodating and professional and were easily able to process insurance claims, answer questions, and reschedule appts when i was sick or something came up. i was very impressed by my experience here and would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a new physio!

Went to the Pape and Danforth clinic for a massage with Robert. Customer service from initial onset was with Therese. Was very patient with me when it came to form filling and billing. Robert was also extremely good at working on my pain points and being thorough with his explanations. Overall great massage, experience and education!

I have seen Trevor for several different problems over the years and he has always done an amazing job helping me with my recovery. He is knowledgeable in many areas and always happy to answer questions and explain what he is doing. He is thorough with assessment and treatment so you always feel like you are in good hands. He is also very honest and won't push you to keep coming if he doesn't feel you need it. Mina at the front desk is really welcoming and the clinic is very clean and comfortable. Overall a great physio experience and would highly recommend to anyone!
