Body Bliss Nutrition is a private practice dedicated to helping clients uncover hidden, disruptive changes in the body that often go undiscovered by conventional testing methods.
I will review prior testing results from a “functional” perspective that uses a more stringent set of criteria to find patterns and changes. I may recommend further
testing based on your needs including additional blood testing, stool analysis, genetic markers, hydrogen/methane breath testing for SIBO, food intolerance or others.
While we do not accept insurance, a superbill can be provided for those who have out of network benefits with their insurance carrier. Supplements do not qualify. All services are required to be paid for at the time of visit.
I am proudly partnered with Nurse Practitioner Marilynn Karas, working closely with her on cases requiring additional medical intervention. Marilynn is a women’s health and hormone expert blending decades of traditional training with cutting edge Functional Medicine practices.
Practice better is a secure, HIPPA-compliant platform where you can find your medical chart, fill out practice forms, view test results, use the food and mood journals, upload test results, communicate securely, pay your bills and find insurance documents. Telemedicine visits are conducted using the video component of this system.
If you are unable to keep your appointment, please cancel or reschedule as soon as possible to allow others to book that slot. No-shows and any appointments cancelled under 24 hours will be charged the full fee of the appointment. Changes within 24 hours will be subject to $125 change fee. Monday appointments must be cancelled by Friday.
NYC hours are Monday and Thursday 9am-1pm, Tuesday and Wednesday 2-7pm. Virtual visits may be available at different times by request. Hampton Bays office appointments are available by request on Fridays.
We do not accept insurance and all fees are due at time of service. For those with out-of-network benefits, a SUPER BILL insurance receipt will be provided for submittal.
We accept all major credit cards as well as cash.
No. Jennifer is a board certified clinical nutritionist, trained in functional medicine. She is not licensed to prescribe medications or diagnose disease.
We are happy to answer brief questions through email that pertain to a current protocol. Emails should be short and require no more than a few minutes to answer. For deeper questions, please book a 15 minute clarity phone consult which costs $50. Anything more complex requires a follow-up visit.
It is not advised to change your protocol midstream without direction from Jennifer. Making changes requires conversation to check progress and understand how these compounds are affecting your body. This can only be done in an appointment.
The initial visit is 1 hour. Additional time will be spent reviewing medical history.
Follow-up visits are 45 minutes.
Frequency of visits varies depending on the complexity of your case. Long term issues may require more visits in the beginning to properly address and get on track. In general, most clients are seen every 3-4 weeks in the beginning.
Jennifer will call you at the scheduled appointment time.
Visits are available in-office at the NYC or Hampton Bays locations, by phone or by video through the practicebetter.io platform.
You can join the video call in 1 of 2 ways. Follow the link sent in your confirmation email or directly sign on to your account in the portal at practicebetter.io and join the call.
Please upload any new test results to your chart at practicebetter.io or bring them with you to the next appointment. All testing is reviewed during visits and not discussed through email.
You can easily refill your supplements through Fullscript as well as order anything additional that you need, even if Jennifer has not recommended it. Use the DISPENSARY tab found under “For Clients”.
Everyone is different. Some people feel significantly better in just a few weeks while others may improve at a slower pace. Helping your body to repair itself is similar to planting seeds. On the surface it may not look like much is happening at first but there is a lot taking place underneath it all. Be patient and gentle with yourself.
