The thread with all the doctors that treat ADHD is a good resource but, it is also intimidating. Does anyone have experiences, good or bad, with these doctors? Can anyone recommend a doctor in the Atlanta area?

Best,
Linus

Hey Linus and welcome to Atlanta!
i was refered to the doctor at : Attention Disorders Center
146 Pierce Ave
Macon GA
phone: 478 746 2333
I know it is a long drive (about an hour from ATL) but it will be well worth it to see a specialist. The Doctor there got my meds straight and it changed my life! After i got the right meds, i changed to a doc up here and stuck with what was already prescribed. This has been a great approach for me and i have heard enough horror stories with meds to be very greatful i went to a specialist in the area of ADD.Email me back if you would like to get more info.
Good Luck!

Hi Stacy,


I've been meaning to IM you for info but, I've been so busy with court (job) that I haven't had time to sit at my home computer. Thanks for the info and I'll IM you sometime soon so I can get more exact info. Thanks so much for your post!

Best,
Linus

Hey, it would be nice to hear about your experience when you decide who you will go to. I live not too far from Atlanta/Macon areas and I am in the same boat you can say (tryinng to find a doc).

Keep us posted?

In response to amjones7 - Dr. Edward Gotlieb is the best. He specializes in kids and teens with ADHD. He diagnosed me over 12 years ago and just tested my best friend's child. He works in the Decatur area with his wife. I highly reccomend him. Also, I attend a CHADD parent support group that meets in Dunwoody once a month. It is other parents with ADHD kids and they have special guest (Dr. Gotlieb spoke once) and cover certain topics each meeting. I do not have kids, but go with my friend and to speak with the parents about my experiences. Let me know if you want more info. Good luck!

This may be late, but for people's future reference, my doctor, Dr. Ross Grumet (pronounced Grue-May), is really good. He's located on Peachtree Rd, just north of I-85. I found him through the Psychology Today therapist list, with one of his specialties being ADHD.
