Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
I will help guide adults and children who have Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to have a higher quality of life. I prefer to use the least invasive treatment method possible, beginning with analysis and modifications of diet, family dynamics, history of disruptions, and possible differential diagnoses. If needed, specific interventions addressing behavior management and environmental modifications are implemented. If more intensive treatment is needed then I advise that we test the patient with the TOVA ( tovatest.com ) to establish a baseline level of patient functioning. We will then coordinate care with third-party providers (the patient's primary care provider, for instance) to create a treatment plan that achieves the desired outcome with the lowest dose of medication. Ongoing treatment plan modification will be made depending on the result of additional TOVA results. Once the patient is functioning Within Normal Limits, we have, then, achieved a maintenance level that can be maintained, and monitored periodically.
