ADHD Evaluation by Jacksonville NC ADHD Specialists

ADHD Overview

Are you among the millions of parents frustrated with a hurried diagnosis of ADHD followed by a handful of pills to “get going” in the morning and “shut down” at night?

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.

ADHD Evaluation Protocol

The ADHD Eval protocol provides a comprehensive personalized program designed to assess the more likely and complex reasons for symptoms associated with an 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.

How Much does the ADHD evaluation costs?

The typical cost for the first visit for children is under $1200 and under $1500 for adults due to the most common need for a full review of hormones.

Mold and amino acid testing can be added if indicated.

In some cases we can start with "At-Home" brain training (neurofeedback, AVE, HRV biofeedback) that can reduce costs and make therapy easier to fit into a busy schedule.

We will work with you to make an effective program that is customized for your specific needs.
