Lauren is great and very professional. We had difficulty navigating insurance, and she stayed in touch frequently via email before even setting up our first appointment. When we were finally able to have our first appointment, she sat withme and my partner, asked lots of questions, and really listened to the answers, as well as giving us plenty of time to ask our own questions. She was very knowledgeable about the topics we discussed, and offered access to resources where we could read more about the things we covered in the session. We felt very comfortable working with her, and never felt rushed at all. Highly recommend!

Lauren was extremely friendly and engaged for the entirety of my appointment. She was recommended by a good friend of mine therefore I trusted her going into the appointment. Lauren worked with me on a 'custom' meal/health plan which takes intoconsideration a pretty radical life change on my part. Very happy with the attention I received and highly recommend Lauren!

Lauren was very easy going, professional, and compassionate. After our first meeting she came up a with an individualized meal plan built around foods I like to eat (Which I didn't even think was possible,lol, being that I had to cutout all my favorite stuff like dairy, gluten, and rice). Go see her if you want to take your health and wellness to the next level with a nutitrition plan that is sustainable and not "crash dieting"- you won't regret it.!

I started seeing Lauren after I started experiencing very terrible tummy pains. I got hospitalized, went to see specialists, and none of them would provide me with an answer. From our first meeting, she listened. She actually listened to myproblems, asked questions to better understand my history and troubles. I had major bloating that was painful, and it was really making me miserable. I was actually scared of eating. She then formulated a diet plan around my restrictions without judgment. Within a week I was already noticing 80% improvement! It was incredible. She continued to work with me to ensure I was 100%. She emailed me very useful resources and assured me I can contact her whenever for any questions. She has been the only person to actually help me with my tummy problems. I'm now bloat free, not scared of eating food, and have even reintroduced foods I had sworn off. Thank you Lauren for all your help!

This is my first visit ever with a Nutritionist; my visit was very easy in the sense that I was able to express myself truthfully, I was very clear with my intentions and goals and what I expected. Dr. Minchen hadall the answers and in my first visit was able to taylor a head-start plan and follow-through to help me achieve my goals. It was a very informative visit, and she's very knowledgeable in this field - she explained things I didn't know or understand. I look forward to my journey to living healthier, smarter and better!

I can't write enough good things about Lauren. I've seen her twice now and she has the kindest, gentlest soul and really takes the time to listen and understand her clients and their particular situations. She isn't some strict calorie counterthat makes you feel ashamed or embarrassed. She understands nutrition, and how difficult transitioning to a healthy lifestyle can be. If you see anyone in the city....see Lauren. Her gentle demeanor alone will brighten your day.

Good positive visit! Lauren answered all my questions, which I rattled off for a good 45 mins. I was recently diagnosed with gestational diabetes and needed some guidance on the type of diet I should be on. We went through myrecent meals, discussed acceptable portion sizes and also what foods to avoid. Didn't know I was supposed to avoid whole grain breads and couscous! It was a pleasant and informative session and she emailed me more plan information after our session.
