I wasn't sure if Dr. Jain was the Toronto ADHD specialist who spoke at a regional pro d day, but I found a bio that states he has four children and a wife who is a pediatrician and remembered what he said about his family. He is worth listening to.

I have a friend who has ADD and she desperatly needs a doctor to treat her. She is in the Greater Toronto Area and has tried unsucessfully to find a doctor. She can't get motivated, I wish i could help, this such a terrible disease. Can anyone recommend a doctor or where to look for help? Thanks in advance!

#1. Has she had Psychological testing? (Not covered by OHIP unless she is in a LT care mental health facility.)

#2. Almost all Psychiatrists who treat adults want the diagnostic paperwork from her Psychoeducational Testing.

#3. They won't just prescribe Ritalin or Dexedrine based on self-report!

#4. Need more information to recommend anything or anyone...

I can tell you how to get testing (FOR FREE), if she is OSAP-eligible, but i am not typing it all out unless she is serious.

In the past, i have found that "Second-hand inquiries" on here often lead nowhere, so I'm not typing out pages of info, unless she is actually serious about getting ADD help, HERSELF.

Tell her to make an ADDFORUMS account and come talk to me/us. I'd feel more comfortable with that. :)

We had something recent in town, but found it too technical and not enough on how to solve things, work with it, etc.
