Lower your blood pressure, prevent heart disease, stroke, heart attack, and eat the foods you love with an individualized nutrition plan from expert NYC certified nutritionists and registered dietitians.
High blood pressure is often called the silent killer because it can be asymptomatic. Something so common (1 in 3 Americans suffer from high blood pressure — of all ages, genders, and sizes) is not to be taken lightly. Harm done by high blood pressure happens over time. Undetected, high blood pressure can damage arteries and lead to heart attack, stroke, even heart failure.
Lifestyle modifications should be considered before medications to reduce blood pressure levels. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute has determined that the DASH diet. (Dietary Approaches to Stopping Hypertension) is an effective means of lowering blood pressure. And, luckily for us, it’s a delicious way to eat our way to health.
One of the expert registered dietitians on our team can help you make small adjustments to your eating patterns, so you can reduce your blood pressure, even prevent high blood pressure, and improve you and your family’s heart health. You don’t have to give up your favorite flavors, food traditions, and recipes to be healthy. It’s all about moderation and modification.

It was very informative and helpful. I learned a lot on my visit with Dr Nikita Kapur. She was very easy to talk to and I got some good suggestions. I left really thinking about how to work on my eating composition
We met Nikita kapur and she is outstanding. She was very knowledgable and gave a realistic advise on diet. In today's social world its important for the dietician to look at all outlooks and she explained us everything with so much details. Diet is about balanced eating and have been following her advice since we met her and already feel a difference! She is amazing !!!
Met with Erika and she was lovely. Very nice and easy to talk to. She offered up a test/solution based on my issues described and I left with a solid plan of action. Looking forward to working with her more and seeing if we can get to the bottom of my problems.
I have been going to Compass for some time now and Erika is just the best. She is very understanding and works with you to tailor my eating habits and does not look to take things away. She has helped me discover how to eat better with simple changes. I recommend her to anyone looking for a great nutritionist.
Erika helped me get unstuck off a weight plateau I've been stuck on for 10 years. It's amazing.
I had my first appointment with Dr Nikita Kapur today and she was wonderful. She communicated a ton of information, but broke things down in a way that was easy to understand and digest. I was recently diagnosed with SIBO (and have autoimmune diseases) and went to her to help with reintroduction of foods, but learned so much more. While I feel there is a long road ahead of me, I feel confident that with her guidance, I will get my gut health to a good place.
Nikita has been an instrumental guide in helping me navigate the recovery process after a SIBO diagnosis and working through the elimination/reintroduction diet. I know folks with IBS dealing with these elimination diets on their own and they all wish they could have access to a nutritionist throughout the process - I'm lucky to have been referred to Compass by my GI doc and lucky to have Nikita keeping me sane through the process.
Met with Nikita Kapur today and got some great advice on ways to improve diet and wellness game. Thank you, Nikita.
Many claim to be a nutritionist. But only a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) meets rigorous academic requirements with clinical training, holding a degree from an accredited university. Our RDNs stay informed of guidelines set by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to provide our patients with expert nutrition counseling.
