ADHD Frequently Asked Questions
Please take a moment to read our most commonly asked questions. We're always available to answer your questions and encourage you to contact our office if you have a question that is not answered below.
Q: What is the best way to schedule an appointment with your office?
A: You can schedule an appointment by calling our office or by requesting an appointment online.
Q: Is your office accepting new patients?
A: Yes, we always welcome new patients. Contact our office for additional information or to request an appointment.
Q: Do you accept insurance?
A: We participate with most HMOs and other insurance plans. Please call the office for more details regarding this.
Q: Will insurance cover all the charges?
A: We will work with you and your insurance company in order to ensure maximum benefits allowed under your particular plan. Unfortunately not all plans cover all services, and therefore, there may be services that are not covered or paid for under your plan. We will attempt to determine this, to the best of our ability, prior to the services being rendered. We will inform you of the cost of any uncovered services.
Q: Do you have counselors or therapists on staff?
A: At this point we do not have any counselors or therapists in the office. However, we maintain very good relationships with behavioral health clinicians throughout the state and would be able to provide an appropriate referral.
Q: What type of testing do you do?
A: We do only the testing that is required to arrive at the proper diagnosis. We will not repeat testing that is done by school personnel unless there is a specific reason to do so. We review all testing done by outside parties. Some of the testing we offer in the practice includes:
