What were you doing before EatLove?
I used Nutrihand to create meal plans for my patients and I used the USDA Food and Nutrient Database when analyzing nutrients in recipes I created
How did you incorporate EatLove?
I started using EatLove with one of my long term patients who works with me twice a month every month. Once I saw how easy it was for her to use, I started offering to create EatLove meal plans for all of my other patients. I find that my patients who have paid a la carte for meal plans are more likely to follow them. As a result, to date, I have had the most success in offering EatLove meal plans as an a la carte service.
How did patients take to the technology? What has been some of the positive feedback you’ve received from clients on EatLove?
My patients have found the EatLove program easy to use. They love that they can schedule their plans and go back to reference them whenever they want.
How has your practice grown since implementing EatLove?
I am fairly new to EatLove but have found that it has increased my company’s revenue from patients I had already been working with. Instead of just booking in office or telehealth appointments now, they also purchase EatLove meal plans.
