About Priya Lawrence (Akhoury)
While traveling the world after completing her undergraduate degree, Priya developed her passion for food - both learning about it and eating it! Ultimately, this sparked an interest in harvesting a deeper understanding about the triggers and rationales behind the various choices people make involving food. In 2006, Priya graduated from New York University with a Masters of Science in Clinical Nutrition, along with becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. Priya spent over seven years working at Beth Israel Medical Center as a clinical nutritionist counseling hundreds of patients in one-on-one sessions and designing the curriculum for a weekly group nutrition seminar that she facilitated. Priya is committed to creating a wellness plan that is realistic and allows her clients to truly meet their goals. In 2013, Priya, along with her coworker and fellow dietitian decided to expand their reach and establish a private practice, Tried and True Nutrition, Inc. The practice focuses on individuals, groups and corporate wellness thru one-on-one counseling, group seminars and in office cooking and nutrition demos. Priya, a mother of two young children, lives in NYC and tries to juggle all that life throws at her. Her pregnancies and child rearing sparked a larger interest in pre and post natal nutrition, as well as, pediatric nutrition. When Priya gets some free time, she enjoys reading, spinning, yoga, Crossfit training and finding new restaurants to try. Accepted forms of payment: personal check, cash and/or credit card. ** At this time this practice does not accept any insurance plans **

Patient reviews for Priya Lawrence (Akhoury), MS, CDN, RD, RDN
I would absolutely recommend Priya! I just had my initial visit and she was not only thorough, but accommodating, non-judgmental, extremely understanding and realistic! Super informative and validating of my concerns!
Today was my first appointment with Priya and all I can say is that I’m thrilled to have chosen her. In my first sit down with her I felt very comfortable and I felt no pressure or judge in telling her what my problem was and what I was going through. You can tell that she is invested and her smile makes you feel reassured in that she wants to work with you and really help you accomplish your goals. She works around what you like and tells you things with honesty and care. Although I have only had one appointment I am looking forward to going back. Feel assured that you will get the help you need with her.
She’s great. Knows her stuff. I don’t hesitate recommending her!
Very comfortable, good discussion, helpful tips on leading a healthy lifestyle
Very personable and supportive, Dr. Lawrence created a customized plan for my lifestyle.
So glad I searched around and found a dietitians who embraces plant based nutrition! Priya took the time to understand my medical experiences and journey searching for healthy nutrition. First appointment went extremely well and I can’t wait to return!
Dr. Lawerence is great - she is super easy to talk to and gave a lot of great advice. My fiance and I visited her together, and we got a lot of helpful tips on how we can rethink the way we eat to reach our goals. We are looking forward to our next visit!
I am seeing someone else in the office named pam. She is amazing.
AWESOME! So nice and so helpful.
I feel so lucky that I found Priya because she has truly changed my entire approach to eating, dieting, and health. After trying to diet countless times and seeing multiple nutrionist and failing , I was completely hopeless until I met Priya. Her approach to eating and dieting is really wonderful and empowering. Our visits are truly enjoyable and I always feel supported when discussing my challenges with her. Moreover, she's incrediblely accessible via email and responds quickly. She is always willing and able to answer all of my questions, even regarding the silliest things. She also constantly checks in between visits and provides guidance and help when needed. I would truly recommend her to anyone, whatever your goals are. I have now lost 5 dress sizes and I feel so excited to continue working with Priya.
I've been seeing Priya for quite some time now. She is a compassionate and informed dietician who has helped me lose a considerable amount of weight (70 lbs) safely and capably by carefully adjusting my diet and lifestyle so that it would work for me. I can't 100% say she saved my life, but hey, my diabetes is gone and I can put my socks on without risking a cardiac event. Priya is the best solution for all your nutritional counseling needs.
Very knowledgable and helpful.
A great approach - my first visit and looking forward to continuing to work on my transition to a plant-based lifestyle customized to my individual needs!
Super friendly and great bedside manner! Realistic in expectations and suggestions and very informal. Doesn't focus on the weight, but rather being healthy and having good nutrients in your system. Would absolutely recommend, and will be continuing to see her every two weeks!
it was very helpful and received a lot of good information
Dr. Lawrence was extremely helpful. I had a list of questions, some that made no sense, and she was patient enough to go through all them with thorough answers. Would definitely recommend her for anyone with any dietary questions!
