Dr. Mendelsohn literally changed my life. I had doctors ready to put me on cholesterol pills and birth control for irregular periods. Through simple diet techniques and supplements she turned my health around completely. I was able to go off all medicine and felt amazing, in addition to losing over 40 pounds. I cannot recommend her services more.Mar 10, 2015
Paula helped to diagnose my health issues; and develop a diet specific for my needs to get me back on the road to health. She is patient, thorough and caring.Mar 8, 2015
Paula is a very knowledgeable nutrition professional that approaches her patient cases with a holistic view. You could not be in better hands, my health and general condition changed radically (for the better) since I visited Paula and followed her recommendations. I recommend her 100%.Mar 10, 2015
I have been working with Ms. Mendelsohn for ten years. When we started I was overweight and had dietary and nutritional habits that were far from exemplary. I also had two bad rotator cuff tears and surgery was strongly suggested. Amazingly, the procedures and protocols she laid out for me stuck and I still follow them today. Now, at age 76, I am fit, alert, professionally active, physically active (walk three to four hours a day weather permitting, chase varmints with my little dog, shovel snow, do all my own gardening, etc.). And I have absolutely no rotator cuff problems! Thank you Paula!Mar 16, 2015
I visited Ms. Paula with digestive problems, SIBO, H Pilory, hip pain and inflammation all over my body. I was not able to sleep, felt exhausted among other symptoms. It is the best investment I have ever done. I recovered my health. I can exercise on a daily basis, I can sleep well, I can spend time with my kids without been exhausted and cranky. I am more than grateful to Ms. Paula for her knowledge, she is up to date with latest research information and supplements. It is great to have someone to explain what is going on in your body with a logical explanation after spending years with different Doctors not knowing what is going on and thinking that I was making up stories. Don't think twice to invest in your health with such an excellent professional.Mar 10, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $150/hour for my services. On the initial session when I do a very comprehensive and thorough evaluation and assessment with a long health and family history and review all the client's lab tests and blood work and food diary and medications and allergies and concerns, this could become quite the financial investment, so I discount the first session to $125/hour. This fee is for the time involved in reviewing and evaluating the information shared, as well as designing and explaining your food plan, and does not cover the cost of any supplements that may be appropriate once we complete the assessment-eval and see what is needful to provide support for healthy functioning.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The newly interested client-to-be will call my office or send us an email requesting support for their personal health situation. Myself or my assistant Yuilyn will explain the dynamic of how we assess and address the issue, and offer a possible scheduling time. The client will check their schedule and see when is a good match and we will book their appointment. The client will be asked to bring in a 3-day food diary, all relevant lab tests from the prior 2 years, containers of any medications or supplements they may be taking (so I can read all the ingredients listed), any questions they can think of for me prior to coming in, and a brief health history citing any surgeries or injuries they think may be relevant to the current situation. All of this is reviewed during the first session as well as an actual health/personal preference/family history in order to have sufficient information to create their food plan and make appropriate supplement recommendations. Follow up visits are typically set up for 3-4 weeks after the initial session.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My colleagues jokingly refer to me as a "continuing education junkie". It seems like I am in some kind of training, workshop, seminar, webinar, symposium or conference every month. I recently attended a 2 day event in Miami where I was on a "hug-hello" basis with almost every speaker on the program. I am honored to be recognized in my field as being "cutting edge" and a resource to my peers. I always have way more credits than are required to maintain my licensure. I do not attend these events only for the CEU's, I go for the information so my clients know they can trust my recommendations. I have been in life-long learning mode since completing my Master's in Public Health Nutrition at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and my Clinical Internship at Johns Hopkins Hospital. I am on several Board of Advisors and taught nutrition at the college level from 1997 til 2017.
