Palos Verdes Medical Group offers a wide range of services for the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in children and adults. Read more about our testing and treatment options on this page.

 

Consultation

An ADHD consultation is often requested by a teacher, parent or primary physician when he or she determines that you or your child may have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This may also include situations where you or your regular physician suggests you have a second opinion. Adult patients can often recognize their own ADHD symptoms and will request a consultation themselves.

The initial consultation often involves a physical examination, a review of patient records and medical history, and possible diagnostic testing. We recommend for pediatric patients that you bring school report cards and standardized test results to the consultation.

 

Testing

Because there is no single test to diagnose ADHD, Dr. Sher uses his professional assessment as well as information gathered from several other sources such as the patient’s family, friends, caregivers and teachers in order to make the initial diagnosis. We ask that the patient has their parents, family, teachers and/or peers fill out a questionnaire called the Connors Test or Rating Scale so that Dr. Sher is able to better assess the type of behavior observed over time.

 

Treatment

ADHD can be managed in many different ways. Dr. Sher will work with the patient to develop a custom treatment plan that works best for you. Treatment plans will always include close monitoring, follow-ups, and making any necessary changes along the way. ADHD treatment may include one or more of the following:

  • Medication
  • AD/HD coaching
  • Behavior therapy
  • Support groups

Although attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder cannot be cured, we can help you successfully manage and treat your ADHD. Contact our office for additional information or to schedule an ADHD consultation.
