Ryan is amazing. He helped me manage my diet in a way that worked for me, which has never worked for me before. With his help I was able to lose a significant amount of weight and manage my blood sugarlevels to avoid Type II diabetes. I recommend him to anyone who mentions needing a nutritionist.

Excellent dietician! The entire first consultation was extremely comfortable and educational. He works for both extroverts, where he keeps things very conversational and introverts, not super comfortable talking a lot with someone new.In this case, he takes a more prominent role as a conversational driver. He made sure to educate me in everything we were talking about without talking down to me. We went over my goals, created a potential first plan and he even gave me recommendations on brands I should get without being overly pushy and salesman-y. Very personable and definitely worth a check if you're in the market for a dietician.

Fantastic consultation! Ryan is such an attentive, positive and knowledgeable nutritionist. He is a NYU graduate in clinical nutrition and listened to me talk about my weight/food issues in great lengths. His approach was really empowering!My consultation with Ryan is probably the most time and genuine attention I have ever gotten from a health care professional in New York City :) I have been to nutritionists before and have usually left their office feeling utterly depressed--everything from the lack of a waiting room, to operating from a home-office, always being in a rush, not looking healthy themselves to giving me the random "portion control" advice etc. But no such a thing with Ryan! I think he and his colleagues are probably running New York's best nutrition practice. They are located right in front of the Empire State Building but once you step into their office, you feel you're in a very caring, nurturing, small-town yet modern environment. So glad I found Ryan here on zocdoc.com. Thanks!

I liked Dr Turner but found the office to be extremely badly managed. I showed up fifteen minutes early because I assumed they would want me to fill out some forms. There was Noone at reception so I just sat therefor twenty minutes. Then a person wearing track pants walked in and gave me paperwork to fill out. it was all very unprofessional and offputting.
