Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) affect approximately 7% of school aged children, and 4% of adults. Untreated, it can lead to significant impairment in social, emotional, academic and occupational functioning. Studies have shown that education about the disorder can significantly improve the outcome. Often patients find that their doctor does not have the time necessary to answer their questions about the disorder.
An online survey reveals that 56.3% of patients think of questions about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder to ask their doctor after they leave his or her office. 42.5% of patients reveal that they leave their doctor’s office with unanswered questions about ADHD/ADD. 31.3% of patients feel that their doctor doesn’t have the time to answer their questions about ADHD. In summary, there are many questions about ADHD which are not being answered.
Dr. Kenny Handelman, a Board Certified Psychiatrist, is addressing these unmet needs. “I know that education about ADHD is crucial to patients’ outcomes. I have found a solution for these unanswered questions. I have created a newsletter to provide scientific, accurate information on ADHD,” says Dr. Handelman. “I also hope that I can reach more people by using the power of the internet.”
A new ADHD Newsletter has been developed to specifically address these concerns. It is a no cost solution. Interested individuals can visit http://www.TheADHDDoctor.com to subscribe. There is only one catch -- Dr. Handelman wants you to submit a question. Each week, Dr. Handelman chooses a frequently asked question to answer, and emails it out to the list.

- The Diagnosis of ADD and ADHD
