Dr Briggs has more than 28 years experience in the evaluation and management of children and adolescents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. Maybe your child's teacher has expressed concerns, or you have concerns about how your child is doing in school. You may have read that many doctors are overdiagnosing ADHD and prescribing stimulant medications without doing a full evaluation. The last thing you want is for the doctor to spend 10 minutes with you and then hand you a prescription for medication. Not all school problems are ADHD. There is no simple test for ADHD--the diagnosis is based on clinical judgment. It is necessary to spend enough time to make a correct diagnosis and to counsel parents and children about treatment options. Clinical experience really does make a difference!
