ADD / ADHD Assessment and Treatment

The team at Millennium Medical Associates is committed to the assessment, treatment, and support of patients with attention deficits. Because we specialize in working with adults with ADD/ADHD, we understand the unique challenges that come with this condition. Our practitioners take the time to get to know each patient and to understand your personal struggles with ADD/ADHD, so that we can offer effective solutions that will allow you to finally get your focus back and perform at your highest potential.

Because it’s a fairly new medical specialty, many doctors haven’t been adequately trained in treating adults with ADD/ADHD. That’s why it’s so important to seek care from a practitioner who is knowledgeable and experienced in treating patients with this condition. At Millennium Medical Associates, our practitioners and staff members are dedicated to working with adults with ADD/ADHD.

There are several treatment options available for adults with ADD/ADHD, including psychotherapy, behavior modification, and medications. Our clinicians prefer to treat ADD/ADHD with medications, as this option generally offers the best evidence-based results for individuals with attention deficits. Research shows that the majority of patients with ADD/ADHD will see an improvement in their symptoms when prescribed an appropriate medication. Both stimulant and non-stimulant medications are available. We also offer referrals for psychotherapy and behavior modification services, for patients who may benefit from a combined treatment approach.

We are listeners, we want to answer all of your questions and value open communication with our patients.
