Our Comprehensive ADHD Evaluation Process

Many individuals with undiagnosed or untreated ADHD may face challenges in school, relationships, and their overall mental health, potentially leading to issues such as impaired self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. Proper diagnosis and treatment provide the foundation for achieving one’s full potential.

Initial parent-only visit

~60 minutes

For children under 18, a comprehensive behavioral health evaluation will be conducted involving a detailed review of past medical and psychiatric history. Parents will be asked to complete subjective surveys, and similar input will be requested from teachers and, when possible, from the child. As ADHD symptoms may mimic those of other conditions, an accurate diagnosis is imperative.

Follow-up Visit With The Patient

~30 minutes

This visit with the patient will be to examine, collect further history, and obtain their understanding of presenting concerns.

QbCheck Computerized Assessment

15-20 minutes

Patients older than 6 years of age will undergo QbCheck, an FDA-cleared computerized assessment tool that objectively measures the core symptoms of ADHD: hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention. This tool is used along with the comprehensive evaluation to ensure a reliable diagnosis.

Following the comprehensive evaluation and QbCheck assessment, we offer individualized treatment plan options tailored to the specific needs of each patient and family. These plans are designed to help manage ADHD symptoms effectively, promoting overall well-being and success in daily life.
