Yes, a psychiatrist.: Psychiatrists and psychologists can easily perform an assessment including using questionnaires or scales to assess your degree of symptoms. Behavioral changes and cognitive therapy can be effect for some individuals.

Sort of: There are no specific tests to either adhd or ocd; both are clinical diagnoses based on patient description of symptoms. However, there are non-medication treatments for both, especially for ocd. Look for a specialist in cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt). In urban areas, you probably can find centers that specialize in non-medication interventions for both adhd and ocd.
