I'm gonna submit a recommendation: opencaremedicalcenter.com which is based in Santa Ana.

No upfront fee. Only pay if you get a prescription.

$140 for a ADD/ADHD perscription. ($20 off if you mention their website.)

$95 for subsequent months. (You will have to go in every month for prescription renewals on schedule 2 controlled substances like Adderall and Vyvanse.)

Pretty easy to get prescriptions from them. They are very liberal with them, given their business model.

Quick service. Walk-ins.

Bring evidence of prior prescriptions if you have them. (I did.) I don't know how much more difficult the process would be if you don't bring evidence of a prior prescription, but they SEEMED like they might still give you a prescription pretty easily. And it's risk free anyways. Don't get a script? Don't pay. It's free.

Highly recommended.
