I am attempting to get a single place for people to go when they are looking for professional in their region to help with ADD - if you know a good reputable health care practitioner that treats adults with ADD by all mean do share - if one really really sucks then by all means do share that to -

With that said:

Please be advised readers are responsible for all research into any and all health care professionals as well as baring the sole responsibility for final ADD treatment decisions. ADDF doesn't recommend or endorse any one and all opinions shared by the member are the opinions of that member and in no way reflects the opinion of ADDF as a community

Although I won't delete recommendations for children I am mostly looking for adult ADD care

In the mean time I do have a collection of directories located in the diagnosis section than may be of use to some Where Can I Find a Health Care Professional? (http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33989)

There are a couple of clinics in the DC area.

Here is one in Silver Spring MD, not far from here.

I don't personally know anything about them other than they don't accept insurance. I go to a local psychiatrist for treatment instead.

Speedo - thank you I wish more people would take the time to share resources and information - it would make these areas more productive for the new member looking for help.

Hi,

At chadd.org a volunteer recommended me The Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore they are specialized in mental health but it's a bit far for me. They have a waiting list to schedule an appointment for some clinics (they have various clinics according to the issues). They are taking insurance which is good.

I decided to go to the children's hospital medical center in Rockville, they have various settings one in DC for exemple. They are also taking insurance.

At chesapeake adhd centre the doctors Nadeau and Robbins have good reputation. I've contacted the Dr Robbins she charges $180 for the clinical evaluation which last for one hour. The cheapest price so far usually it's around $300. And she can write a letter for the school or the physician. Her office is at Annapollis MD.
