I'm over 50 years old and was stunned when a cousin said I was ADD. I read the symptoms and agreed but was too embarrassed to ask for help. 2 years wasted. Dr. John explained many questions, but took the embarrassment away. My husband is amazed. You're not too old to seek help from trained professionals such as Dr. John and his staff (always extremely helpful). Janice S.
After talking with my brother and a friend who both are ADHD, I identified similarities with my own experiences and behavior over time. I sought out a doctor to see if I might also be ADHD.
I found the ADD/ADHD Diagnostic Clinic and scheduled an appointment for diagnosis. I learned I was ADHD and within a couple months of treatment I have finished some important tasks that I have procrastinated for years.
I like the way Dr Chuang and the entire staff work with me not only by medical treatment, but by helping me to understand how ADHD impacts my behavior. This not only helps me navigate the obstacles ADHD may drop in my path, but learn to leverage the positive aspects of ADHD that are so often overlooked when focusing on what many view as negative aspects.
Dr. Chuang has shown me how to not view ADHD as a negative aspect of me, but rather as a uniqueness I need to understand and learn about, so I may understand myself and full potential better. I am very satisfied with the treatment and the helpful attitudes of the entire staff. My only regret is that I did not discover this aspect of myself years ago.
Both my children love coming here. Dr John always takes the time to hear my concerns as a parent and discuss options to resolve our issues. He also speaks directly to my 9 and 12 1/2 year old kids so they have an opportunity to contribute to their own care. He is building a relationship with them so that as they grow up they will trust him themselves and not because their mom did. That is priceless to me. We also love all the staff. They are always kind and helpful.
