List of Vancouver Area Doctors, Psychiatrists and Psychologists That Have Been Known to Diagnose & Treat the Symptoms of ADD / ADHD

Return to Vancouver BC Area ADHD Related Non-Profit Support Groups & Other Organizations

 

 

A common complaint I hear from local adults with ADD / ADHD is that it's hard to find someone who in familiar enough about ADHD to be able to diagnose the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Also, it's even harder to find someone that uses medication or therapy as treatment for ADHD. Often those that are familiar enough only deal with children and adolescents, and do not diagnose or treat adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

As an Adult ADHD coach, I can help adults with ADHD develop self awareness around ADHD and learn the practical day to day skills of managing ADHD at work or at home. But I don't treat the co-existing conditions that ADHD adults often have, i.e., depression, anxiety, bipolar, OCD, substance abuse, eating disorders etc. I need to refer them to medical professionals such as doctors, psychiatrists and psychologists that know those conditions AND ADHD. And there's not enough of them around.

ADHD is the #2 Genetically Inherited Condition after Height. If a Child Has it, the Parents Should be Screened for it.

I've compiled a list of doctors, psychiatrists and psychologists in the Vancouver, BC area who have been known to diagnose and/or treat the symptoms of attention deficit disorder with medication and/or therapy. This list has been compiled from the members of the Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group, CHADD Vancouver, and other sources. Doctors and psychiatrists can prescribe ADHD medication while psychologists can not.

This list is Not a recommendation or referral of providers. Please do your due diligence. It is merely a list of some people who are known to have diagnosed and/or treated people with ADD.

As with coaching or any other profession, someone that may be great for someone else may not be great for you. Make sure you're comfortable with the person you choose. Ask the questions you need to ask. Don't be shy, they're there to help you, not the other way around.

Please email me for the list.

If you know of any doctors, psychiatrists and psychologists in the Vancouver region that are able to diagnose the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivty disorder in adults or children or who is knowledgeable enough to medically or psychologically treat people with ADHD, please let me know so I can add them to the list.

Thanks

Pete

Diagnosing Professionals’ Credentials

The following professionals are generally considered qualified to evaluate and
diagnose ADHD as long as they have comprehensive training in the differential
diagnosis of ADHD and direct experience with an adolescent or adult ADHD population:

· Licensed/certified psychologist
· Certified school psychologist in the student’s school system
· Qualified medical specialist (e.g., psychiatrist, neuropsychiatrist, developmental pediatrician, neurologist or other relevantly trained medical doctor certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties i.e., family doctor)
