Please note: Except Hill Physician Members or Medicare Part B beneficiaries with Type 2 diabetes with a physician referral, all nutritional consultation visits are self pay at this time (effective January 1, 2017).  We have moved away from providing insurance coverage in our practice as there has been an incremental increase in requirements for documentation and paperwork. The extra time spent on insurance billing and subsequent follow up with our billing company was impacting the time available for us to deliver exemplary, compassionate and comprehensive nutrition consultations. All Medicare Part B beneficiaries must call directly our office at (925) 407-4740 to schedule their appointments.
