View Full Version : Pittsburgh - good doctors?

02-06-05, 01:09 AM

I am looking for a doctor in the Pittsburgh area to aid me with diagnosing and treating ADD (adult). I have read the other threads and done a bit of website reading (chadd, help4adhd, and others). So, now I have a list of doctors, but no real information about any of them other than names, addresses, and phone numbers.

Can anyone recommend a doctor or share any experiences with a physchiatrist or psychologist dealing with ADD?

I have had a few visits with a doctor, and he didn't seem interested in doing more than writing a prescription and getting me out of his office in 10 minutes. Then I'd receive a bill for a half hour visit at $110 or somesuch. I became discouraged with this and stopped attending.

Perhaps 2 years later, I'm tired of wasting time and waiting (for what?). If someone could recommend a doctor that they found useful, it might save me from repeating the above. I'd rather not choose one from random.

Moderators, is it frowned upon here to cross post this subject to an area where it might receive more attention? These state by state areas seem pretty dead..
