Welcome to the practice of Dr. Allison Hofmann!
The following is a list of guidelines to help you prepare for your first appointment.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Dr. Hofmann will spend time with you going over your case and your needs. Please prepare questions beforehand to assure that she can answer anything during the allotted appointment time. In a typical appointment, time is spent on clinical examination, discussion of findings and reviewing recommendations.
AUTONOMIC RESPONSE TESTING:
Dr. Hofmann uses a system called Autonomic Response Testing to aid diagnosis and treatment. You can read more about this on our ART page. ART is never applied outside the context of Dr. Hofmann’s clinical training as a Naturopathic Physician. Naturopathic Medicine and its principles can be reviewed here:
In the past, Dr. Hofmann required a third party “arm” for patient appointments. This is no longer the case, but may be required on a case-by-case basis. Dr.Hofmann’s assistant may or may not be an arm depending on the circumstance(s). Patients are still welcome and encouraged to bring loved ones that might assist in understanding and implementing protocols and lifestyle changes.
BIOLOGICAL DENTAL EVALUATIONS:
Because Dr. Hofmann specializes in making dental connections with many health challenges, please read the following information so that you are well educated and prepared for your initial appointment.

If you have been diagnosed with a serious health condition such as an Autoimmune Disease, Neurological Disease or life-threatening condition that is not resolved/healed or is debilitating, Dr. Hofmann encourages you to pursue a full-mouth panoramic x-ray for potential coordination of care with biological dentists.
Dr. Hofmann works out of her home in Redmond, Washington. This is a private location and the address is not made public for that reason. Exact address and directions can be found on the back page of the policies you will initial when completing your initial intake form. Dr.Hofmann will also email new patients additional directions.
There is no official waiting room. Simply arrive on time and not overly early for your appointment. If you are early please wait in your car.
You will be asked to remove your shoes when you enter the home, so please bring socks if needed! And we ask that you do not wear any perfumes, colognes, or body/hair products that contain a scent to the appointment to respect our chemically sensitive staff and patients. There are wooden steps leading to the front door, and small steps on the main floor. Be careful. If you require extra assistance or ramp, please inform staff prior to your appointment for special arrangements to be made.
