Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD) is a common psychological disorder that is characterized by problems with attention, impulsivity and/or hyperactivity. It can occur in children and adults.
Patients who experience serious or chronic problems due to 6 or more of these symptoms and do not have symptoms of hyperactivity or impulsivity may have Attention Deficit Disorder without hyperactivity (ADD).
Although there is no cure for the disorder, it can be successfully treated with a combination of medication and behavioral therapy. We offer a test in our office that allows us to successfully diagnose and treat patients appropriately.
