This video is about how to find an ADHD doctor, psychologist, or therapist in your area. This is a very common question that people ask so I am sharing the best way I know of, how to find one.


Make sure you also read the comments below for other ideas.

If you don't have insurance, Mental Health doctors can be extremely expensive. The medication can also be expensive, as much as $400 a month or more. So, you have to choose wisely and that is what this website is all about.

If you want to find a doctor and you have insurance, you need to find a doctor that is covered. If your insurance company has a website, they usually put the physicians on there. You can search for psychiatrist if you just want a doctor that will do a diagnoses and medicate. Some psychologists have nurse practitioners in the same office, so you can receive family counseling, a diagnoses, and medication.



The other option is to work with your family doctor.

So, the best way to find an ADHD doctor is to check your insurance company's resources to make sure the doctor is in your network, otherwise all the expenses will be out of pocket.

Another way to find an ADHD doctor is to ASK friends and family.

More and more families have 1 or more members that suffer from ADHD that already may have good results with their local doctor.

Talk to school counselors and search for ADHD support groups in your area online.

We have shared these tips with our health insurance clients.

Hope this helps.
