Reduce complications associated with chronic conditions and disease. Reduce pain and discomfort from digestive issues and food sensitivities. Evidence-based nutrition interventions, individualized according to nutritional needs and goals.
Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is an evidence and science-based therapy for the purpose of disease management and treatment of chronic conditions through individualized dietary interventions. The nutrition program is approved by a primary care physician then implemented by a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.
MNT is fundamental for the management of conditions like diabetes, metabolic syndrome, food sensitivities and more. Medical Nutrition Therapy involves a complete nutrition assessment in order to develop a sustainable, individualized dietary intervention. Moreover, as we are Functional Dietitians, we don’t stop just with what’s on your plate, instead we analyze eating behaviors, cultural, social, and environmental factors that can exacerbate your chronic condition.
It also includes nutrition counseling, as our RDNs will support you on your road to health. Together, once we receive your medical records, information, and have the opportunity to get to know you and your needs, we will help you set priorities, goals, and strategies to reach your health and nutrition goals, ultimately with the intention of you becoming autonomous and confident in your food choices.
All of the Registered Dietitian Nutritionists in our practice use the guidelines established by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to ensure our patients receive the most up-to-date information and treatment.

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.
