Common Questions

It’s my first visit, what should I expect?

Will my insurance be accepted?
Namaste Natural Healing Center, Inc accepts most major insurance. Call our office or contact your insurance company if you are unsure if they will cover our services.


Pre- Appointment: Before your first appointment you will be sent a welcome packet that includes information about the clinic, our location, and policies. This will also include a detailed intake form so that you may provide information on your current problems as well as your past illnesses, surgeries, medications, allergies, and family history. Please complete these forms and bring them with you to your first appointment, or the forms may be downloaded from the website for your convenience.


Appointment: Your first visit will take approximately 90 minutes for chronic conditions, 45-60 minutes for acute conditions. Dr Meyer will take a detailed history to supplement the information on your forms, perform appropriate physical exam if indicated, order any necessary lab tests or imaging studies, answer questions, and create an individualized treatment plan with you.


Follow-Up Appointment: Follow-up appointments vary from 30-60 minutes, depending on the severity or complexity of your condition, lab results that need to be reviewed with you, and the number and extent of your questions. Dr Meyer feels it is important for you to understand the treatments she is recommending for you as well as why she is recommending them.


What should I expect after the appointment?

Support:After you leave the office Dr Meyer understands that other questions may arise. We encourage you to call the office with any questions or concerns about your recommended treatment instructions or your medicines. The front desk staff is here to assist you, and will gladly relay any messages to Dr Meyer and get an answer for you in a timely manner.


Confidentiality: All of us at Namaste Natural Healing Center recognize that it is an honor that you have entrusted us with your personal information as well as your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well being. These privileges will be handled with both the respect and confidentiality that we would want for ourselves or our loved ones.
