Adult & Child
Symptoms of Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be more subtle and difficult to diagnose in high functioning individuals. But these symptoms can affect their ability to reach their highest potential at work, in school, and in their personal life. We offer a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation to patients of all ages with specific focus on ADHD. If patients would like complete confidentiality, they can choose to complete the evaluation without sharing results with insurance companies or school.
Why do I need a diagnosis?
ADHD symptoms can affect every aspect of a person's life including school, work, relationships and personal sense of self. While not every patient will need medications and therapy to treat their ADHD, getting a formal diagnosis of ADHD can help them understand their own thinking, planning, and emotion regulation. Having a formal diagnosis can also help individuals request and receive accommodations and support in school and at work.
Patients will complete two separate telepsychiatry appointments. This provides the patient and provider plenty of time to compile information and plan appropriately. After the evaluation is scheduled, we send multiple clinical questionnaires for the patient and/or their caregiver to complete before the first appointment. After the initial evaluation, we might send some additional questionnaires if needed. Once all the questionnaires have been completed, there will be a follow-up appointment within 2 weeks to review differential diagnoses with a written report. If patients would like complete confidentiality, they can choose to complete the evaluation without sharing results with insurance companies, work, school, and/or family.
