Dr. Chuang embodies compassion. I came to him with a 7 year old boy who was losing interest and falling behind in school. We are one year into conservative treatment for ADHD and he's made tremendous progress. My son went from several special education type programs to being tested for gifted and talented. Dr. Chuang was crucial in unlocking his potential. His office staff is educated and professional and I couldn't recommend them more.
Very friendly and polite- always making me feel welcomed personally.
My husband & I have 5 kids. All was well until few years back, out of the blue, I suddenly found myself in a peculiar place. Our lives had always been hectic along with chaotic & a bit dramatic at times but we had adapted to it quite well. I'm not sure what exactly threw it out of balance, but all I recognized was my typical ways of handling life, all of a sudden, stopped working. I couldn't seem to shake it or fake it or even force it/ all the "life-hacks", that had always worked in the past, if & when I would find myself pushed up against something that just wasn't working! But that wasn't the case anymore! I felt as though my luck had run dry. But now, it wasn't just my life it effected. My sudden lack of ability threw a huge kink in everyone's lives in our family. Which led to even more disappointment in myself & a tremendous amount of pressure & anxiety to try to figure out what was happening to me!! I was ashamed. I felt like a professional juggler who had forgotten how to juggle. That's when I learned I had AD/HD. Then it became clear our entire house was an entire family of undiagnosed AD/HD. That was a relief to know but finding a doctor who would take us all on without breaking the bank, turned into a full time research project. Until we left word with one dr's message service and surprisingly got a return call the following morning, 1st thing from Missy @ Dr Youngs ADD Office. She was this saving grace / so patient & understanding - she walked me through the steps I needed to take in order to get myself, my husband along with our 5 kids transitioned into their care immediately. That was almost 2 years ago. The doctors and the entire staff are all superb. I've recommended them to so many friends. For me, this diagnosis and this treatment plan has put me back in the drivers seat in my life. I can not express how blessed we are that we found our home here, for all 7 of us!! Thank you for your commitment to everyone's health who walks through your door.
