Are you concerned that your symptoms could be ADHD?
Symptoms commonly associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are also caused by a variety of other illnesses and conditions. These symptoms include:
- Difficulty focusing in a variety of situations
- Problems getting organized
- Not listening when spoken to
- Having trouble sitting still or waiting in line
- Constantly interrupting others
- Being easily distracted
Hall Health Center can offer screenings for mental illness and other conditions, but we are unable to test for ADHD or other learning disabilities. You may schedule an appointment with us to be screened for other illnesses, and if we suspect ADHD may be the reason for your symptoms, we will refer you to a provider who can evaluate you for ADHD.
Have you been diagnosed previously with ADHD and need medication?
Due to the potential for abuse of ADHD medications, you will need to take the following steps in order to receive a prescription for medication:
- Fax your medical records, including your ADHD diagnosis, to our Medical Records Department at (206) 616-4683. These records must include a full psychological evaluation, with documentation of any other mental illness and/or learning disorders.
- Schedule an appointment for a records review with a Hall Health Center provider.
