I wasn't sure what to expect. However Jennifer is great. She is warm, kind, helpful, nonjudgmental and she listens. She wants to help you set realistic obtainable goals. I like her a lot. Too bad I just found out that myinsurance won't cover her services. I think that she would have been extremely helpful.

I was looking for a nutritionist but was intimidated and did not know where to begin, luckily my co-worker recommended Dr. Calo. She is the sweetest, makes you feel so comfortable. She is very knowledgeable and addresses all your concerns andworks with you to create a sustainable and realistic dietary/ nutritional plan that suits your lifestyle and needs. So glad my co-worker recommended her, Dr. Calo is a gem!

Although this was my first appointment with Jennifer she confirmed that the move from another nutritionist to her was the perfect move. I brought my blood work results from my general doctor and she reviewed everything with me and explainedit in a understanding manner. She gave me good advice and made me feel assured that my health is in good hands.

Jennifer was great. However, when i booked my appointment, I didn't realize that this was a dietician/nutritionist office. I was expecting to be seen and have a thorough exam, including havingmy blood levels checked. However, if you're lookingfor someone to give you advice and tips for a proper diet, Jennifer is your girl!

Was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a month ago, my doctor recommended Compass Nutrition. I chose Jennifer because of her background with diabetic nutrition. Am so happy I did, Jennifer put me at ease from the time she said hello. Sheanswered all my questions and explained everything I needed to know about what to eat and why to help me control my diabetes. Have already setup a follow-up appointment and am looking forward to it!

She is a very upbeat, perky, pretty and has a way of letting you know, you can trust her. She explains why Doctors should not be giving diet advice, because first of all they are not diets. LIfe changes are whathelp you increase or decrease your weight. How you can really eat the foods you want as long as you also add to those meals the things you need to modify the things you like. Instead of a huge steak, take a small steak but add things you like, vegetables, salads, etc. I was able to cut 2000 calories out of my daily meal plans by removing butter, salt, cutting back on bread, cream for my coffee, and salad dressings. I am losing 2 pounds a week and I'm not hungry, the only real problem is trying to stay within a food budget when eating all of the right things.

Ms Calo creates an atmosphere of trust and comfort. I was amazed at how fast 70 minutes had gone by. I left with a feeling of making huge changes just to get a smile from her when I return for afollow up. After 4 other disasters with other RD who didn't know anything about the questions I asked, Ms. Calo had an answer with an explanation about everything. It's not easy to find a good medical person here in NYC. This one is a pot of gold.
