THIS IS MY TAKE ON MYTH-INFORMATION ABOUT ADHD AS PRESENTED IN POPULAR MEDIA
There is way too much of it, usually with a sensationalist slant and biased against diagnosis and/or treatments for ADHD. Risks of not treating are never mentioned but miniscule risks are overblown.
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
Accepting only adult New Patients, with 2-3 month wait. Directories of other ADHD clinicians are at add.org (adults) and additudemag.com (children and adults).
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'
