I cannot begin to express how much the ADD/ADHD Diagnostic & Treatment center has changed my life. I really had no understanding of ADHD when I first came in, but the entire staff was so friendly and welcoming and made me feel right at home. Dr. Chuang worked with me to get the right dosage and along the way he explained and taught me everything that I needed to know. He is a great doctor but an even better teacher! I would recommend this practice to anyone concerned about the possibility of ADD or ADHD- you won't regret it!
Great Doctor, fantastic staff all polite and helpful, overall one of the best Doctor/patient relationships I've ever had in my 50+ years.
Dr Chuang is attentive, thorough and extremely well informed in his chosen field.
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.
