Meet Our Chiropractors In Red Deer
We Would Love To Hear From You
Dr. Norman Hoffman
Chiropractor | Lead Clinician
Thirty-four years ago, Dr. Hoffman’s dad visited his medical doctor because of severe lower back pain that was preventing him from being able to do the manual labor associated with his job. The doctor told him that there was nothing he could do for him and that he would probably end up in a wheelchair within a few years.
Dr. Wade Harestad
Dr. Harestad has been practicing Chiropractic at Hoffman Chiropractic and Wellness since 2010. He endeavors to optimize the health of his patients through a combination of chiropractic care, exercise and nutrition to provide patients with a balanced approach at maintaining their health and wellness.
Dr. Derrick Nolan
In over 20 years of practice, I have devoted countless hours to becoming an expert in natural, non-invasive health and healing. I delight in helping others reach their full potential by sharing how chiropractic adjustments can make that happen.
Meet the Team
Clinic Director and Patient Care Coordinators
I grew up in Barrhead, Alberta and graduated from NAIT with an Office Administrative diploma. I have worked as a Chiropractic Assistant for over 14 years. In my free time, I love to bake, knit, craft, travel, and spend time with family. At Hoffman Chiropractic & Wellness, I enjoy being a part of the process of helping people. Seeing the patients make progress and getting to know them, makes my job so rewarding!Being in the chiropractic field for this many years I have seen hos chiropractic can help patients, including myself and my family, in so many different ways other then just back pain. I am grateful to have discovered the many ways chiropractic can help everyone from babies to seniors live healthier and happier lives.
Patient Care Coordinator
I’m the first to greet you when you walk into the clinic. I absolutely love my role – from getting to know each of our patients to hearing their amazing health breakthroughs and success stories! And when I’m not in the clinic, I’m in the company of my family, curled up with my kitties having a good read or out for an adventure!
As a Chiropractic Technician since 2013, my primary responsibility is attending to new patients. I am the one who assists Dr. Hoffman with the extensive neurologic exams and performing the initial diagnostic testing.
I studied psychology and English at Dalhousie University and have a Diploma in Practical Nursing. I like everything about my job! I enjoy working as part of a team, the brilliant doctors, and learning something new every day. I enjoy monitoring and tracking patients’ progress. Seeing them improve is amazing. I like getting to know patients and their stories; knowing everyone by their names and on a personal level is awesome. I love helping people. Working here has made me want to be the best “me” I can be. I eat healthier and exercise more. I have less back and neck pain, less anxiety, less headaches, and more energy and focus!
