Our dietitians don't just hand you a diet or a list of foods not to eat and send you on your way! Likewise, they don't try and "sell" you unnecessary food or supplements. 

OPRC nutrition experts look beyond fads and gimmicks to deliver reliable, life-changing advice tailored to your objectives as well as personal needs and challenges. We take your food preferences into consideration and work on building a healthy relationship with food.

This approach leads to sustainable weight loss and effective management of chronic diseases.

FAQs

The following are some of the most frequently asked questions about dietitians in Ottawa:

How Much Does a Dietitian Cost in Ontario?
+ -

The cost of a dietitian in Ontario varies depending on the type of nutrition service you require. Generally, dietitians charge an hourly rate for one-on-one counselling and meal-planning services.

Most insurance providers cover the cost of dietitian services, however, it is important to check with your provider to determine what is covered.

At OPRC, we offer competitive rates and accept most insurance plans.

Can You See a Dietician for Free in Ontario?
+ -

Unfortunately, dietitians are not covered by OHIP in Ontario. However, many extended healthcare plans do cover the cost of seeing a registered dietitian. If you have an extended healthcare plan, please check with your provider to see if they cover the cost of seeing a dietitian.

Is It Better To See a Nutritionist or a Dietitian?
+ -

The answer to this question depends on your individual needs and nutrition goals. Both nutritionists and dietitians are health professionals who can help you make healthier food choices, but there are some key differences between the two.

Nutritionists typically focus on providing advice about general healthy eating habits and lifestyle changes, while dietitians are more focused on providing individualized nutrition programs for specific medical conditions.

At OPRC, our team of registered dietitians can provide you with personalized nutrition counselling and meal-planning services to help you reach your health goals.
