ADD/ADHD can wreak havoc with your work or school life, causing you to be underemployed, or have conflicts with your boss or spouse. ADD/ADHD can also contribute to procrastination in turning in assignments or not completing examinations in the allotted time. But be careful; many other conditions can present similarly to ADD/ADHD. An accurate diagnosis by a clinician experienced in ADD/ADHD is critical to guide you toward the proper treatment.
If you or your child warrants a diagnosis of ADD/ADHD, test accommodations such as extended time on examinations or assignments, a quiet environment, or a reader or note taker for classes may be available to you under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Neuropsychological testing is usually required to document a disability in order to obtain additional time on exams such as the SAT, GRE, MCAT, LSAT and GMAT.
We not only diagnose ADHD, we put you on the path to success by recommending the right treatments.

I will keep you updated on my testing and my career. Thank you for helping me reach my dream.
