David P. Pomeroy MD, FAAFP
My philosophy of patient care comes down to 5 things
1 - Start where the patient is, respecting that without judgement
2 - Listen - gather information
3 - Formulate diagnosis based upon knowledge, training and experience
4 - Explain, educate, address all concerns, provide resources
5 - Repeat steps 1-4 each and every visit
To be the best in-person resource for my patients on all dimensions of ADHD
A word on definition of ADHD vs ADD.
The formal diagnosis is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - Inattentive Type (or) Hyperactive Type (or) Combined Type.
Just because the "H" is in there, doesn't mean it only applies to the Hyperactive folks, it includes the Inattentive folks as well.
However one defines it, ADHD comes in many flavors!
P.S. Attention Difference Disorder is a better way to think of it. Just sayin'

website - well, you're here. You did it!
There is no Facebook or Twitter account for ADD Center. Security concerns and too much work to maintain!
If you have an in-office appointment scheduled you must change that to a video visit. CALL NJ or look for call/email from her to do so; she has to make changes on the schedule so it can happen. You will need the Healow (h-e-a-l-o-w) app on your phone or use the Portal on laptop or desktop computers. Please do a test run on it BEFORE your appointment time.
This is to reduce the risk to NJ and I of catching the COVID-19 virus. If either of us do get sick from it the office will have to close until we are well.
Please stay safe and healthy. Reduce your risk of catching or exposing others by washing your hands often. Stay home if you or anyone in your household has a fever over 100.4, cough or muscle aches and feel sick.
Accepting only adult New Patients AFTER COVID-19 LOCKDOWN LIFTED IN WA AND I DECIDE RISK TO NJ AND I IS LOW ENOUGH TO HAVE PATIENTS IN OFFICE AGAIN. Directories of other ADHD clinicians are at add.org (adults) and additudemag.com (children and adults).
