Common Questions

Who can diagnose ADHD?

Only a licensed medical provider (M.D., D.O., Psychiatrist, Nurse Practioner, Physician Assistant, etc.) can prescribe medication for adults with ADHD.

*MMA is an M.D. office.  Our physicians treat with oral ADHD medications.  If counseling is preferred (behavior modification, etc.) instead of treatment with medication, we suggest that you choose a psychologist or master level therapist. 

What is your 'Concierge' program?

As soon as you become our patient, you're automatically enrolled in The Millennium Concierge Program.  

For refill encounters, simply text or call your designated patient liaison with no hold time. Your prescription is prepared and sent electronically to your pharmacy, with a text or email confirmation from our office. The convenience is unbeatable: No more waiting rooms. No time lost driving across town to pick up a paper prescription.

What should I bring to my first appointment? 

Please bring to your first appointment any documents you'd like us to add to your medical record (previous medical records, laboratory results, etc.).  If you are over 20 minutes late to your appointment we will 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.  And, it is true that we require all prospective patients to complete two proprietary ADHD questionnaires.  We require this step for a few reasons, the most important being:  there is currently no standardized testing to diagnose ADHD.  Consequently, different physicians may interpret testing data and/or patient descriptions of symptoms in different ways.  At Millennium Medical Associates, our primary objective is to safely and effectively treat sufferers of 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 someone suffering with ADHD.  For that reason, all prospective patients are required to complete our ADHD questionnaires.  

How do I know if I have ADD/ADHD? 

Common symptoms of ADD/ADHD include an inability to complete tasks, beginning several tasks and finding none of them finished, irritability in social settings, etc. There is an ADD/ADHD Assessment that can determine whether you suffer from this condition.  You can take the assessment here by completing the ADD/ADHD Assessment and emailing it to our office. 

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

Our staff members are leaders in providing patient-focused care. We take the time to listen to patient's 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 and will require you to pay at the time of your visit.  However, if you have PPO insurance, we will submit a reimbursement form directly to your insurance company on your behalf for which they will reimburse you directly the amount they would cover; the average reimbursement averages 63% of your visit cost.  We're happy to take care of the paperwork for you. We accept Cash, Debit Cards, and credit cards.

What is your cancellation policy?

We require a 24 hour notice to cancel all appointments. Please be sure to contact us if you will not be able to make your scheduled appointment with your medical doctor to avoid having to pay a cancellation fee. 

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 a patient, you'll be given a number you can also text that goes directly to your patient liaison. 

Do you allow same day appointments? 

We happily offer same day appointments, upon availability. 

What are your office hours of operation?

Monday through Friday.  9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  We close for lunch from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
