The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimate that over 6 million children between the ages of 4-17 have ADHD. Untold adults continue to have symptoms of inattention and disorganization. We know that there are several causes of the cluster of symptoms that lead doctors to diagnose ADHD. We also know that current technology (e.g., blood tests, urine tests, functional brain measures, detailed review of systems and history) applied correctly can lead to a deeper and more patient specific understanding of the medical reason(s) for these presenting symptoms.
The ADHD Eval protocol provides a comprehensive personalized program designed to assess the more likely and complex reasons for symptoms associated with a ADHD diagnosis. With new and more functionally specific data we can in many cases offer a responsible alternative to stimulant medication therapy. It is not uncommon to see patients transition away from medications or at least function well on a lower dose.
Internationally respected Pediatric Neurologist, Dr. Robert Turner, M.D., MSCR, is an expert in the analysis of the many causes of symptoms that lead to an ADHD diagnosis. Dr. Turner is Board Certified by a dozen professional medical organizations. His honors and rewards are extensive for his clinical care and research around the world. He knows all to well that many children and adults are misdiagnosed and also mistakenly treated with medications that can have lifelong adverse side effects.
Most often patients would only receive a few brief minutes with a Doctor of his skill and knowledge, with the bulk of the office visit being conducted by mid-level providers or medical residents in training. Although appointment availability is very limited, Dr. Turner is now offering personalized and lengthy evaluations that include a treatment plan with the provision of treatment tools in a condensed 2-day evaluation and treatment protocol.
