Discussing weight and body issues is never an easy or comfortable thing. Tara is super patient and encouraging. Seeing her is very therapeutic and at the end of our meeting, I always feel "lighter", at least mentally.

She had a nice bedside manner but offered nothing insightful. Most of what she said was common sense/easily searchable online. In the 1.5 hours I was there she really didn’t get to know me or my food allergies.

So nice! She really took the time to explain everything to me and didn’t hesitate to go over something again if I had any questions at all even if they sounded a little silly. She really works with you and isrealistic with you about what you have to do to reach whatever your goals are. Highly recommend!!

I have been to several RDs and Tara is by far the best. She has a very balanced perspective and guides you through the real-life challenges of losing weight while being an active, social adult. There is no restriction or off-limitsfoods, which makes success attainable and enjoyable. During appointments, she takes time to review upcoming social engagements and look at menus so you can make the best possible choices while enjoying but still staying in track. Tara is prompt, professional and truly cares about the success of her patients. I would highly recommend her!

Very nice lady! Friendly & funny. I didn’t get a sense that her suggestions were tailored to me. I was really searching for options about foods to eat, not just a standard list. I asked about options that were healthier andfell into parameters of her guidelines and didn’t get my answer specifically. She appeared to be a bit annoyed at that question. As a person who doesn’t eat enough and has a low metabolism and wants to lose weight, I wanted more of a variety of suggestions. Not everyone eats or likes what’s on the list provided. A bit discouraging.

Tara is an excellent nutritionist. She is to the point and direct without being harsh. She understood my needs and goals and help me set realistic lifestyle goals for myself, instead of shoving a diet plan in my face. It wasa very pleasant experience and I will be seeing her again.

Not very helpful or personalized. She basically gives you health tips out of a textbook from college (and she just graduated). The basic info she gives you could easily just find on Google.
