Has anyone had experience getting tested and treated for ADHD as an adult? If so who do go to to start the process of being evaluated? I’m struggling with staying on task at work and just an all over the place type of person and interested to see if this is due to ADHD.

Any doctor recommendations in the Charlotte area would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I went to my primary care doctor for the evaluation which was a simple set of questions on a likert scale. Based on my doctor recommendations, I took a week to reflect and document aspects of my childhood, teens, early adulthood and now (I’m 41). After that step, I populated the form the dr gave me. We had a session to review everything and I was diagnosed with ADHD. I go to Dr Allen Shepard (Atrium) who has been the best doctor I’ve ever had.

I went to Dr. Trey Ishee. He can't prescribe meds, but he did pretty thorough testing and I felt heard.

I took his recommendation to my primary care doc and got it fulfilled.

Good luck.

Edit: I went out of pocket to do this, but it was pretty reasonable. Lmk if you have questions.

I talked to my PCP about this last week. He said he couldn’t diagnose me because insurance wants a psychiatrist to do it. He told me that it would be a several month wait to get evaluated in person and told me to go with an internet ADHD service and get evaluated virtually. He recommended to then have the diagnosis sent to him as my PCP to prescribe meds cheaper than the internet services. However since I was told this last week, I haven’t gotten around to it all yet. Curious to hear others

Dr. Jeffrey Ewert, Carolina Neuroservices offers testing and programs for Adult ADHD. This doc is fantastic - knowledgeable, empathetic and very clear in his recommendations. He can suggest meds and has programs to retrain focus and memory.

Red flags:
- micromanaging account person
- forces to babysit the design team
- unorganized structure
- no training on first week but got assigned projects

Feeling bad for leaving right before busy season. I'm on a 9/30 client and I'm planning on leaving next month (I've been applying). Feel like I need to apologize to the team. Is that normal?

I feel like I'm definitely burning bridges.
