Discuss with Psyc: Every practitioner has hei/her own way of assessing patients.If you underwent some testing, i assume there was a followup visit scheduled or suggested for you to discuss the results.If this is not clear, call the office during regular hours and find out when that will be scheduled.

Neuropsych testing : The diagnosis of add is usually based on history, symptoms and neuropyschological testing. Most often there is an appt set to review the results and recommendations. In some cases that is done by the doctor that ordered the tests such as the psychiatrist. The results are then incorporated into an individualized treatment plan that may include therapy, training exercises and meds. Good luck !
