Raising the Standard of Care For

Patients With ADHD

Before starting Greenville ADHD Specialists, all of our providers worked in medical practices where they saw many patients who felt overwhelmed, anxious, easily frustrated, and tired. All too often, these patients were incorrectly diagnosed with other conditions: generalized anxiety disorder, depression, chronic fatigue, and more.

In cases where these symptoms were correctly identified as ADHD, the diagnosis was truly life-changing for the patient. Unfortunately, traditional practice environments aren’t always well-equipped to accurately diagnose ADHD, so many patients never get the help they need.

Our providers have devoted their practice to the diagnosis and treatment of this disorder. We go above and beyond to make sure that we have enough time during appointments to build a relationship with you, appropriately evaluate your symptoms, perform state-of-the-art diagnostic testing, and provide individually-tailored treatment.

What Our Patients Have to Say

Our Approach to Treatment

Starts With an Accurate Diagnosis

Effective ADHD treatment is so much more than just symptom management. We use state-of-the-art diagnostic tests to make sure that our patients’ treatment plans are perfectly tailored to their needs. Some of the tests we use include:

QbTest is the gold standard in ADHD diagnostics, and Greenville ADHD Specialists is the only practice in the Upstate that administers the test. It is an FDA cleared, 15-20-minute computer-based objective test that measures core ADHD symptoms: activity, attention and impulsivity. Results are instantly analyzed and presented in a report that compares a patient’s results with a group of people of the same age and gender who do not have ADHD.

Neurotransmitter Testing

Neurotransmitter Testing involves the collection of urine that is sent to a laboratory in a test kit provided by your clinician. This testing is used to detect imbalances among your major brain chemicals, known as neurotransmitters, whose function is to transmit signals from one neuron (brain cell) to another. Optimal neurotransmitter balance is required to maintain proper health. Imbalances can cause the brain and the body to be over- or under-stimulated, producing neurological or psychological symptoms.

Genetic Testing

Genetic testing is based on the concept of personalized medicine. Our testing uses your DNA from a cheek swab to report on the most important genes involved in your body’s ability to benefit from certain medications and other treatments.

CNS Vital Signs Testing

CNS Vital Signs testing measures subtle neurocognitive changes or deficits. The testing involves a non-invasive, computer-based assessment that is well-validated, has good test-retest reliability, and has a large database against which patient performance is assessed.

ADHD Looks Different for Everyone

In particular, adults might experience ADHD symptoms very differently than children and adolescents. Learn more about how we diagnose and treat patients of all ages.
