Common Questions

Who can diagnose ADHD?

Only a licensed medical provider (such as a medical doctor, psychiatrist, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant) can prescribe medication for adults with ADHD.

Millennium Medical Associates is a medical office. We treat ADHD with oral medications, including both stimulant and non-stimulant medications. If counseling is preferred (such as behavior modification) instead of treatment with medication, we suggest that you choose a psychologist or master-level therapist. We can offer referrals for these services, for patients who may benefit from a combined treatment approach utilizing both medications and counseling.

What is your 'Concierge' program?

We are pleased to offer our Millennium Concierge Program as a complimentary service to all of our patients. As soon as you become our patient, we will automatically enroll you in the Millennium Concierge Program, and you’ll be assigned a designated patient liaison.

The Millennium Concierge Program offers unbeatable value, convenience, and personalized care for our patients. For medication refills, simply text or call your designated patient liaison with no hold time. We will prepare your prescription and and send it to your pharmacy electronically, with a text or email confirmation from our office. No more waiting rooms, and no time lost driving across town to pick up a paper prescription.

What should I bring to my first appointment? 

Please bring any documents you'd like us to add to your medical record, such as previous medical records or laboratory results. Please keep in mind that your first appointment is reserved especially for you, and we do have a lot to accomplish at this visit. If you are over 20 minutes late to your appointment, we may need to reschedule you. 

If I've previously been diagnosed with ADHD, why do I need to complete your medical practice ADHD diagnosis questionnaires?

It is not unusual for a previously-diagnosed-and-treated individual to reach out for treatment at our ADHD practice. We do require all prospective patients to complete two proprietary ADHD questionnaires, for several reasons. The most important reason is that there is currently no standardized test to diagnose ADHD. Consequently, different physicians may interpret test results or patient symptoms in different ways. At Millennium Medical Associates, our primary objective is to safely and effectively treat adults with ADHD. Accordingly, we have developed a comprehensive screening process. We think our process, beginning with the ADHD questionnaires, is the best way to effectively diagnose and treat individuals with ADHD. Therefore, all prospective patients are required to complete our ADHD questionnaires. 

How do I know if I have ADD/ADHD? 

There are many different symptoms of ADD/ADHD, which can be unique to each patient. Some common symptoms include not completing important tasks, beginning meaningless tasks instead of finishing important ones, or appearing irritable in social settings. There is an ADD/ADHD assessment that can help determine whether you suffer from this condition. You can take the assessment here by completing the ADD/ADHD assessment. Once completed, our staff will review your assessment results and contact you within 24 hours, Monday through Friday. 

How is the doctor-patient relationship different here, compared to other hospitals or clinics? 

Our staff members are leaders in providing patient-centered care. We take the time to listen to our patients’ concerns and address any questions they may have. We are a physician’s clinic that values all of our patients and appreciate the long-lasting relationships we create with them. 

How will I pay for my care?  

We do not accept insurance directly, which allows us to spend more time with our patients, and we are under no obligation to share your medical information with any third party. It also allows us to offer a more personalized level of care without insurance companies seeking to control the course of treatment.

Therefore, we do require payment via cash or credit/debit card at the time of your visit. However, if you do have insurance, we will submit your insurance claim for you. Your insurer will then reimburse you directly the amount they would have paid us; the average reimbursement averages 63% of your visit cost. We're happy to take care of the paperwork for you.

What is your cancellation policy?

Please note that your appointment time is reserved especially for you. We kindly ask that you notify us at least 24 hours in advance if you’ll be unable to make your appointment. If you miss your appointment and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you may be subject to cancellation fees. 

How can I get a hold of my medical doctor? 

We take pride in our doctor-patient relationships and schedule plenty of time for you to get all of your questions answered. You can reach us via phone, fax, or email. Once you become a patient, you'll be given a number (which you can also text) that goes directly to your assigned patient liaison. 

Do you allow same day appointments? 

We happily offer same day appointments, upon availability.
