I began with ambivalence and fought....will this person be any different than others I have worked with? How long will it take to reach my goal? I don't know if I am ready or can be patient or change everything I do and eat ......As I began working with Jill She spoke softly, kindly, and intelligently over the phone, she reviewed my blood work, medical history, actually asked me what foods I liked, couldn't live without and what I was allergic to, hated would never eat... By the time we met for our first session Jill prepared an extensive outline and education material made just for me and we reviewed the guidelines together as I glanced to the side I noticed Jill had made a seven day meal plan with meal and snack choices and she had taken all of the number and calculations out of the equation for me ( she did all of the work and all I had to do was enjoy and choose one of the meals or snacks custom designed for me) she also began with an exercise plan that matched what I had reported doing time wise and type and she created a daily schedule and the increases or changes were made at times I was ready both with food, behavior modification and exercise.  I was afraid Id have to give up all my sweets and alcohol but jill finds a way to make almost all foods fit, albeit in moderation, she believes we can learn to eat and approach food as we did as a child.  We get in touch with our natural hunger cues, listen to them, feed them healthfully and stop eating before we are completely full.... After nearly 6-8 weeks I had lost eight pounds, inches off of my waist, hips and my clothes were loose I could justify a shopping spree and this only led to more internal sense of accomplishment, confidence and motivation to keep it up.  I thank Jill every time we meet and as she makes herself available in between sessions for questions.. I always find time to email her a short note about a positive experience, challenging moment with a good choice ending and I thank her for both her initial encouragement and work with me as well as her ongoing work and relationship we have developed through my months of success.

Jill counsels on an individual basis with extreme care and patience and her knowledge of the field is far more expansive that that of any other dietitian or nutritionist I or anyone I know has seen or spoken of. She has both her RD license and Masters degree in Clinical Nutrition and has worked alongside the top Physicians in New York as well as participated in Medical Round tale discussions at LHH during her one year dietetic internship. Jill takes the additional time necessary for each individual required  in order to gain a full picture of their past present and family medical history, goals, blood labs, personal influences, and life changes and encourages each client to speak with confidentiality and trust.  An excellent rapport was developed in our first phone call and continued to grow in our first session.  Jill listens to each person when with you as well as throughout each week be it via email, phone or text , Jill is always available for questions or concerns and alleviates any anxiety associated with beginning a new lifestyle and with a new therapist.

In addition, Jill always prepares typed up and organized, personalized educational  material that is relevant to our goals, and discussion of the day and it feels as though Jill is my personal dietitian as each session is designed especially for ME as the client/patient. Jill  spends far beyond the one hour or so in the office with each client.

Jill knowledge is evident with our discussion pertaining to health and nutrition as prepared, as well as, spontaneous questions that I often have for her and she delivers the answer in a way that is personally relatable and memorable and usable. Jill is a very intelligent, bright, generous, kind, optimistic, beautiful, encouraging, empathetic, understanding and successful young lady whose character shines through during each of our sessions or phone calls and she has not faltered even once during the six years we have worked together as I am her client and she is my teacher, dietitian,  confidant and therapist as I view her in such a light.

I have achieved my own goals and surpassed those I began with when Jill and I first met at the initial counseling session and have successfully and continuously maintained success through each goal achieved while working with Jill's guidance. I have never felt overwhelmed, in fact I have achieved far more than I ever set out to and Jill prepares and presents and follows up in such a way that it is as if she is always with you.

 Jill is thorough and includes full blood workup and reviews each reading that she orders to have drawn. She looks far deeper than the surface and is genuinely interested in helping you achieve your own healthful goals while guiding you to see any other healthful goals that would be of benefit to you today and in the long ru for life. I am so appreciative to one who recommended Jill as a dietitian however Id say Jill Goldberg, MS, RD is far more than just a dietitian with a masters degree and internship she is a true life coach, with intelligence and kindness, modesty and care. We should have a medical field and team filled with people who model both the intelligence, patience, kindness, thorough work and success of Jill Goldberg, MS, RD.  I highly recommend Jill as a dietitian, therapist, confidant, medical sea of knowledge, one who looks beyond the surface and truly enjoys helping each individual without ever staring at the clock- I have never known her to wear or watch or make reference to the time, just like her prepared work on each health topic and those topics we broach at my spontaneous suggestion , Jill is prepared and makes it all so seamless and all that is needed to be said, heard, prepared, asked, answered, discussed, discovered is done so in a matter of time that is not measured by a ticking clock, watch, buzzer or phone call- it is natural. I don't know how Jill does it all so well and when I began I thought four or five sessions but after the first session I knew I would continue looking forward to coming back and I have regularly ever since we met and began over six years ago and I look forward to our meetings and I imagine Jill as a part of my life and health team on a regular weekly basis as I learn more each week and gain encouragement, confidence, inspiration, knowledge, patience, and spread the word to those who ask me and those who I think should seek the help or guidance of a very very unique person, character and dietitian.
