Diagnosis and Assessment of ADHD
When assessing you for a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), your Remedy team collects information to evaluate if your symptoms meet criteria for this diagnosis (even if you have been previously diagnosed and prescribed medication).
You can expedite the process and increase the likelihood that we can send in a prescription on your first day with us, by having the below information sent to us in advance, or by the time of your first appointment.
Please send your information through our patient portal here.
Additional information required for ADHD diagnosis
A diagnosis of ADHD in adults entails a history of symptoms which present before the age of 12, so we collect some additional information about your childhood history. This information may be collected in one of three ways:
- If you already have it completed, you may submit a copy of prior formal neuropsychiatric testing, as completed by a psychologist (send to your provider through our patient portal here.
- You sign a release of information (which you can obtain through this link here and your Remedy team contacts your prior psychiatrist about your previous diagnosis of ADHD. This will happen after your first appointment.
- You and someone you know completes a set of research-based questionnaires, called the BAARS, about your ADHD symptoms (you can download the BAARS evaluation here). And then you may submit through our patient portal here.
