Jackie spent a good amount of time with me, going over my health issues and my current eating and exercising habits, while talking about my goals and expectations. We came up with a plan designed to help iron out some of my daily habits to get me on a more efficient weight loss path. Looking forward to seeing the results!
Jacqueline was very professional and informative and I learned some surprising things about some of the foods that I eat. I left with an understanding of how to read food labels and a lot to think about when making better food choices.
Very helpful and enthusiastic.
I thought she was rigid and condescending. Those with eating disorders who are looking for a gentle hand should look elsewhere.
My appointment with Jacquline was very informative! She offered me excellent guidance and made me feel really comfortable. Jacqueline even confirmed my insurance coverage! She is extremely knowledgeable and it's obvious she loves what she does. Discussing weight loss is never easy for me and Jacqueline acted very non-judgemental and comforting. I'm already looking forward to my next appointment!
Very helpful and practical advice for correcting my diet to avoid pre-diabetic issues. Very responsive to follow-up questions etc.
She was very professional and prepared. It was my first visit and she made me feel very comfortable. She answered all of my questions and had examples that I could relate to.
Very knowledgeable Felt very comfortable
Courteous and no waiting time. Ms. Podel is very knowledgeable and was very clear with her instructions. It was clear to me she is up to date with any nutritional changes that have occurred recently or are in the pipe line to change.
She was great! Very helpful and knowledgeable.
The visit was excellent. I saw her many years ago and today's visit was like the last time. She knows her stuff and digs deep into your daily routine when it comes to the foods you eat. She listens to your concerns and expectations. Once she gathers all your information she then designs the best meal plan for you to follow. I would recommend her to anyone
Very knowledgeable and helpful.
Really enjoyed my visit , looking forward to one more step to a healthier life.
I learned a great deal about myself and about diet today. Ms. Podel is extremely well informed about nutrition. I'm very happy that my PCP recommended her.

Jacqueline was awesome. It's the first time I've seen a nutritionist and I felt super comfortable talking to her. I will see her again and would highly recommend her

Very knowledgeable and friendly doctor. It was a pleasure to work with her.
Informative, practical and useful.
Jacqueline was a fantastic resource for me to think creatively about a challenging diet when i had restrictions due to a pregnancy. She was thoughtful, extremely helpful, and got my health on track. Highly Recommended.
Very knowledgeable and pleasant. Looking forward to next visit with positive results.
Jacqui is very approachable. She has a fantastic personality and persona. I went in low - I told her I was low and sad with where I was with my health status. Simply she said 'OK - Let's fix it'. What an amazing human being. Inspiring person to base yourself on, I understand that you need to do the work but she a good role model.
Dr. Podel was very informative and helpful, and was able to talk me through all of my concerns. She is calm and pleasant to talk to, she didn't make me feel wrong or that I needed "fixing". I enjoyed her very much and have a follow up appointment in a month.
It was my first time seeing a dietitian/nutritionist and it was a great experience! Jacqueline was thorough, attentive, and responsive to my concerns and questions. She's funny and has a great way of explaining things clearly. I left with a lot of information, an easy to follow plan and am excited to try it out. I am definitely returning and would highly recommend!
The nutritionist was very knowledgable. She gave me ideas that will help me reach my goal and advice to increase my workouts.
She is a nice person. Her advice may be difficult for me to follow. It will require considerable effort.
Fantastic. She was intuitive and very interested in getting to the root of my problem.
Very helpful. We talked about my diet and how to manage going forward. She gave me really good advice and I feel that what she advised me on is doable and I may actually be successful!
Dr. Podel is an extraordinarily energetic and accomplished professional nutritionist. Despite having a pretty good grasp of my nutritonal needs, Dr. Podel listend carefully to my personal narrative and offered numerous recommendations that will improve my health. She is thouroughly conversant with the latest nurtition research and has an easy and engaging manner when communicating with her clients. As a teacher myself, I know how hard it is to communicate new informaiton to people without appearing condescending. Dr. Podel is a natural - clear, authoritative and enthusiastic. She makes me want to follow her advise.
It was great! She was very patient with me and gave me great info. I've already scheduled a follow-up appointment with her.
Always a joy to see her--never makes me wait. In addition, she is always supportive and enormously encouraging.
Jacqui Podel was lovely. Very friendly and helpful. Explained things very clearly.
Dr Podel was great. She takes the time to find out everything to help you figure out what will help. Very professional and courteous. I Will highly recommend her.
I have now been seeing her for six weeks. She has given me some really helpful tips on weight loss and is usually very sensitive to my needs.
Jacqui is extremely knowledgeable and helpful and I highly recommend her!
I thought she was ver informative and insightful. I would recommend her services.
I saw Jackie twice, the zocdoc appointment and then once through her a month later. She seemed very judgmental about the process for me and didn't listen well. I'm sure she's knowledgeable but I wasn't as perceptive as I could have been, given her attitude.
She is very knowledgable, knows about common misconceptions, and did a great job at understanding what foods (and other household items) we have to avoid and what we can eat now that I've been diagnosed with celiac disease (~wheat allergy). Turns out that information on the internet scared us a lot more than necessary!
It was very informative and incredibly useful visit. As a preventive measure, I believe everyone, especially people who have the insurance to cover most of the cost, should visit a registered dietitian. She was thorough and offered fair, sensible and do-able solutions.
Ms. Podel is very easy to talk to, she made me understand the correct way to use diabetic nutrition in my diet. I'm so impress with Ms. Podel that I recommend her to my heart doctor, for his patients.
She was pleasant to speak with and seemed knowledgeable
Very easy to talk to! Made my eating plan simple and in a way that will be easy for me to follow. She knows her stuff :)
Very professional. Highly would recommend. Seemed very knowledgeable.
Jacqueline is fabulous. She cut straight to the chase, and found the weaknesses in my diet, told me what to change, and the amounts. I'm now putting this to work for the next six months.
Dr. Podel was highly knowledgable and, relayed the information to me in a way that was extremely easy to understand. She was also a very good listener, and not judgmental what so ever. Asked questions that were able to allow her to map out a very good eating plan for me. I had never gone to see an dietitian before my visit with Dr. Podel, but I can safely say that she is very good at what she does.
Very impressive level of knowledge, and what might have seemed to be dry information was shared with humor and enthusiasm.
She's an excellent dietitian. The information she provided was very valuable. I found her to be fun, down to earth and approachable. I'm glad I made the decision to see her as she's already helped me a lot by taking her advice. If you're looking to lose weight and struggling with your diet she's the one to go to.
Great! Very Helpful. Hard finding this place though.
• Professional • Understanding • Pleasant • Practical • Willing to listen to individual concerns
I arrived ahead of time and she was gracious to take me in and spend quality time with me.
The nurse on my job suggested I see her and told me she knew that I would like her. She was so right! I learned so much from my visit and felt inspired to change my eating habits starting the moment I left the office.
Great first appointment, answered all my questions with good feedback.
I was very happy with my visit. Jacqueline was thorough and patient and answer all my questions and helped me understand my current diet better. She also helped me come up with a plan for the next few weeks on how to eat a more balanced diet. Plus she gave me a lot of great info that will help me with my acid reflux problem.
She was kind and understanding... obviously knowledgeable and non judgmental. Having a game plan in place gives me hope of reaching my health and fitness goals.
