No: The public site is for general information.We do not offer to diagnose or treat anyone on this forum. The HT concierge service has docs who do some such work. The treatment of ADHD often involves drugs closely monitored by the state/feds.Any doc prescribing them without proper documentation through office based exam/testing/record keeping is likely to lose their license.
