I suggest calling Mass General or Beth Isreal. They can refer you to Doctors in your area who are affiliated with them. That's what I did because I wanted a well respected doctor. Also you can call the Hallowell Center in Concord MA (Ned Hallowell wrote Driven to Distraction) They will also direct you to doctors who work with them in your area.
Good Luck

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)
