ADHD forms and policies
We recommend calling 7 days in advance in order to account for vacations, holidays and weekends.
Please allow 3 days for the refill of ADHD medication.
Your child requires a biannual visit every 6 months for follow-up and evaluation of their ADHD. No medications will be refilled if past this date. Your child’s annual well-visit take the place of one of these.
*As of January 1st, 2018 we will no longer be seeing ADHD patients at an interval of every 6 months. In accordance with American Academy of Pediatric recommended guidelines, we will start seeing these patients every 3 months for regular follow up. 4 total visits in a year, with 3 as follow-up appointments and one with the annual well visit. This is also in compliance with federal DEA mandates. We understand that this is a deviation from our past practices, but national standards of care have changed, and as always, we strive to provide the best care for our patients and their families.
