Note: In states where the naturopathic doctor (ND) license is recognized (Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Washington, D.C.), the profession is regulated and NDs are licensed as primary care providers. Although Jill Hoffman is a licensed primary care physician in Arizona, in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, where the ND license is not recognized, she acts as a holistic health counselor. Naturopathic medicine provides alternatives as well as complements conventional medical treatment and Jill is available to work in tandem with your primary care and specialist physicians to coordinate treatment recommendations.
