View Full Version : Portland OR ADHD Psychiatrists

09-11-09, 07:40 PM
Hi everyone. I am looking for recommendations on psychiatrists in Portland who are familiar with ADHD. You can PM me if you prefer to not post their name in a public forum.

I ask because I seriously think I need some help in treating my ADHD. I was diagnosed in college as having it and tried Wellbutrin and methylphenidate to help with concentration. After I while I just stopped taking them because it didn't seem to help really.

After reading many people's experiences here and on another forum, I think I would like to try Adderall. The two things that concern me the most are that I don't have medical insurance at the moment and I don't want to be labeled as a drug seeker. Other people's experiences just doesn't seem like a good enough reason for a psychiatrist to write a script for me.

I should probably add that I am relatively new to Portland and therefore this is why I don't have the medical connections that I did on the east coast.

Thanks :)

Does this list include Doctor's who treat adults with ADD as well? If so, could you please PM me the list also. I love my GP, but I've hit the dosage limit she is comfortable prescribing. Thank you!

My general practitioner did not really know much about ADHD and had to look it up in a book, which I didn't feel comfortable with. So, I googled adhd Portland and found Laurence Eckman's website. I was impressed with his knowledge and understanding of what I was going through, and made an appt. Surprisingly, he got me in within 3 weeks, which was a lot faster than all the other people I called who either weren't taking new clients or it would be 2-3 months out. I have been seeing him for about six months, and he is the best doctor I have ever had. He listens well and really takes the time to get to know you, he doesn't treat you as a dollar sign walking in. He said he specializes in ADHD and that half of his practice are ADHD clients. I think he is taking new patients, but I am not sure. He's at (503) 492-2200.
