Welcome To Our Practice!

 

From the founder, Tricia Sauer, RDN, CDN:

 

As a Registered Dietitian with over 11 years experience in my field, I founded this group of outstanding professionals to help people not only survive in a world of chronic disease, but also to be well. We provide medical nutrition therapy for all stages of life and conditions. From infancy and pediatrics to adolescence, pregnancy, lactation, advanced age, critically ill, and chronically ill.  All our dietitians are Integrative and Functional Nutrition practitioners with a unique specialty.  I specialize in Sports Nutrition & Nutritional Genomics out of our Delaware Avenue location. I have been consulting for multiple professional athletic organizations in Buffalo since 2013.

 

Our exceptional Dietitian Coral Clarke, RDN, CDN joined our practice in February 2018. Coral specializes in Food Allergies and Sensitivities and Gastrointestinal Conditions out of our Orchard Park location. She is a Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT) and very experienced in modifying menus and recipes to eliminate common food allergens. She works with patients to find the hidden food sensitivities commonly found with gastrointestinal and inflammatory conditions.

This May 2019, we were honored to have Noelle DeSantis, MS, RDN, CDN join us. Noelle is a cutting edge dietitian provider of Neurological and Regenerative Nutrition, which she provides out of our office in Dent Tower. She is very experienced in working with neurological conditions using evidenced based practice. We have chosen her to provide care to our dementia patients participating in Dent Neurologic's Integrative Program for Cognitive Decline.  

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our team (Meet Our Dietitians)

and our practice!

Once logged into the portal, you will be prompted to complete our New Patient Forms within the system. If you opt out of the portal, you can download our paper forms HERE. We will respond as quickly as possible within 1-3 business days, depending on new patient volume. 

Completing our forms is essential to helping your Dietitian develop a nutrition/wellness program that addresses your needs, goals, and interests, and that is safe and effective. They also allow us to communicate and share results and progress notes with your primary care doctor and/or specialists.

 

This information is also needed for us to correctly submit claims to your insurance company for coverage. Although visits are free or of little cost to you with most insurance plans we accept, we encourage you to check with your insurance company prior to your appointment. Click here to view our Privacy Policy.

 

Our state of the art electronic medical record is where all your medical information is securely kept. The portal is the fastest way for you to communicate with your dietitian between visits.

Your portal allows you to send secure messages and attachments, access your health information and care plans, request and reschedule appointments, submit payment information securely, and utilize the free health tools available to you as a patient of our practice.

3. Download Our Patient Portal App (Recommended)

We strongly advise mobile users to download our wonderful patient portal app called "Healthie", where the portal's valuable tools and resources are easily accessed. TIP: In order to receive notifications when you receive messages from your dietitian, be sure to accept push notifications.

 

4. Check-In

 

For Office Visits: Patient parking is available in front of both of our buildings. Please click HERE for directions & detailed pictures. Take a seat in our beautiful waiting area and your dietitian will be with you shortly. 

For Telemedicine Visits: Log into your portal on desktop computer or on your mobile device. Navigate to the appointments tab and click on your appointment to enter your live video appointments.

For All Visits: You will receive text and email appointment reminders from our office prior to your appointment. We ask that you be on time, and reserve the right to cancel an appointment if you arrive later than 15 minutes. This is in observation of other patient appointment times. We appreciate your patience if we are running a few minutes late, which may occur as we care for other patients.  We do advise that without 24 hours notice, we charge a $75 fee for missed appointments and cancellations.

We ask that you bring your insurance card and a form of photo identification to your first appointment. For those whose insurance plans do not cover dietitian visits, our reduced private-pay fee is requested at check-in. We gladly accept cash, checks, and credit card.

 

Tricia is extremely knowledgeable and one of the most caring and compassionate health care professionals you could work with.

My visit with Coral was excellent! She explained things to me in a way that I could easily understand and addressed all of my health/nutrition concerns. She provided a relaxed environment and took the time we needed to review my history completely. Her professionalism along with her kind and caring demeanor was exceptional!!!! I will recommend Coral to anyone who is in need of a specialist in nutrition and dietetics, as she provided me top quality care.
