I have been seeing Nikita for one year and I could never imagine that I would be in the place I am in today. For the first time, I feel free from the obsession with weight and yo-yo diets, and insteadfeel confident and free to make healthy eating choices. Nikita's thoughtful advice and non-diet approach to health and well being, has allowed me to finally develop a healthy relationship to food. No longer am I "falling off the wagon" and instead I am building my whole health and well being. Nikita is a breath of fresh air in an industry that is all about short term weight loss and lies. This might take longer but the results so much more meaningful and lasting.

Nikita was kind, patient and informative. She understands and shared the interconnectedness of food/lifestyle/spirit/emotion. She listened intently and gave me a list of foods to try and some homework. I really like leaving with tangiblesuggestions and things to try. I left feeling empowered and on the road to better health.

I'm so glad I went to Nikita! She was extremely warm and welcoming and gave me a fresh and positive perspective on my health. I feel empowered now to make the necessary changes to my diet and Nikita provided me awealth of knowledge and ideas for how to make it all work for my individual lifestyle. I'm relieved to know there is a way to minimize my mild-Crohn's flare-ups without having to eliminate so many foods I love like I thought I would have to! Thank you, Nikita!

I have been suffering from SIBO and other gastro issues for over 2 years, but they have gotten so debilitating these past couple of months. In the past 6 months, I've seen 3 different gastroentorologists who failed to make me feelbetter, like Nikita did within just 10 days of meeting her and following her diet and suggested lifestyle changes. She is beyond knowledgeable and was recommended by one of the gastros I saw. I look forward to seeing Nikita in the future and being able to live a life without digestive pain.

Very professional. I left with a lot of useful information. I'm down to 300lbs now. It's only 3 lbs from my appointment on September 1, 2017, but I'm not gaining. Slow in steady is fine. I'll have a better chance ofmaintaining the weight this way. I'm tired of my weight yo yoing going up and down so I'm making this a lifestyle change. Thanks,

I have been to a nutritionists before, so for the most part I know what I should be eating. Nikita met me where I was and went over with me about developing a plan that will be sustainable for me overtime. I don't want a quick fix; I need a coach that will guide me and help me create healthy life goals around my eating. I feel Nikita will be the perfect coach!

Nikita Kapur was incredibly understanding of my goals and lifestyle and designed a program for me that should work with both. I felt she listened to my concerns and limitations and gave me realistic advice. She also educated me about thereasons for her suggestions rather than simply telling me what to do. I am excited to see her for my follow up and hope to have great results from the plan we put together.

She was running a little bit late but it was fine because it was a frantic day and I didn't mind sitting and waiting and calming down first. She spent about an hour with me discussing my issues, my history, mygoals, she seems very understanding and concerned but I take this whole process on gradually and under my own control. She developed a specific personalized plan for me. I will try it in the morning and hopefully can stick with it for the two weeks until I see her again

She's full of good advice and encouragement, but won't let you getaway with being a slacker! Extra important to me: she is very clear that her interest is in your overall health and well-being, NOT the number on a scale. Definitely recommend!

Explains EVERYTHING! She didn't rush the appointment (even though I was late) and went over so much information with me. She understood my condition and eliminated certain foods that I had no clue would affect it. Can't wait to see what the next 3 weeks is like on her plan!

My visit with Dr. Kapur began with her greeting me in the reception area and personally ushering me into her office. There she took the time to thoroughly question me about my health issues before explaining the possible causes and howto correct my diet. She has great bedside manner and is very good at explaining things in simple terms. As a result, I came away with a significantly different idea of how to approach my diet. I would highly recommend her!
