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
NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS. Directories of other ADHD clinicians are at add.org (adults) and additudemag.com (children and adults).
PODCAST: ADHD FOCUS is on webtalkradio.net. I talk with experts in all fields of ADHD.
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'
APPTS IN OFFICE OR BY VIDEO. IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS ABOUT COMING IN DUE TO POSSIBLE VIRUS EXPOSURE VIDEO ALWAYS OK

FAX (206) 339-5465
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!
We are open for in-office visits as well as video visits. NJ has to schedule them as such. Office visits can be changed to video if you have concerns about exposure. We wipe down the conference room, waiting area chairs etc.
YOU MUST WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES IN OFFICE. YOUR TEMP WILL BE TAKEN ON ARRIVAL; 100.4 OR HIGHER YOU WILL HAVE TO LEAVE.
Please stay safe and healthy. Reduce your risk of catching or exposing others by washing your hands often, wear a mask when out in public (protects others, not you). People who will be getting sick shed more virus in the 2 days before they feel sick. Stay home if you or anyone in your household has a fever over 100.4, cough or muscle aches, loss of smell or taste and feel sick.
