If you answered "YES" to one or more of these questions... it's time for you to join the directory of Dietitians within the Dietitian Referral Network!
The beautiful thing about being a Private Practice Dietitian is that we all bring something unique and effective to the table (literally).
The realm of dietetics is multifaceted. It's quite fascinating, really.With more and more dietitians honing in on their ideal niche, I've found that forming professional partnerships and creating a referral network is a tried-and-true method of increasing clientele while meeting the specific nutrition needs of clients.
The best part of a Dietitian Referral Network is that we are able to build on each other's credibility and add value to each other's practices. What's better than that? If a client is referred to you by a trusted professional, the client is more likely to contact you and also more likely to hire you.
I operate my Private Practice on a part-time basis, which creates limitations in my appointment calendar. I have found that creating a waiting list is ineffective, as there is usually a small window of opportunity when it comes to confirming an initial session with a client.
Instead of turning clients away and feeling their frustration, the idea of a Dietitian Referral Network popped into my mind. I have found it quite riveting to connect potential clients with a Dietitian that meets exactly what they're looking for (and vice-versa). It's like playing matchmaker. Let's begin to build a network of RDs supporting RDs and see just where the journey takes us!
