During initial consultations, Dr. Brown begins with a patient clinical interview. We encourage new patients under 18 to come with at least one parent; for any new adult patients we encourage you to come with a spouse, family member or close friend to provide additional perspective of the patient's presenting difficulties. Dr. Brown will also conduct an ADHD assessment using the Brown Attention/Executive Function Rating Scales (patients will be given a copy of the report by the end of the appointment); additionally, patients are assessed with cognitive measures of their short-term working memory abilities; and screening for possible related problems. Near the end of the consultation, Dr. Brown will answer questions and provide his diagnostic impressions and recommendations for treatment and follow-up appointments.
Brief summary report for initial consultations are provided upon request. If you are seeking a more analytical and extensive report, typically only needed for accommodations, this is an additional fee. Please see our services on evaluations for accommodations and and written reports below.
