COVID-19 Response

We want to reassure you that we are taking every possible step to prepare to handle the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic. For instance, we are now offering telehealth visits to allow patients to continue to receive care in the comfort of their homes, but rest assured that we will continue to provide in-clinic care throughout this crisis and shelter-in-place mandates.

For patients who are at-risk or showing symptoms, we are also offering drive-up COVID-19 testing.
Patients must be screened prior to the testing, so please call one of our clinic locations for more information.

ADHD/ADD

ADHD/ADD can be an extremely frustrating condition for children and their parents. While it cannot be cured, it can be managed successfully in many instances. The professionals at every Questcare Medical Clinic location provide several treatment options, including medication, monitoring and more.

What is ADD/ADHD?

Student resting his head on his arms while looking upADD/ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It is one of the most common childhood behavioral disorders, but it can last into adulthood. When a child has the condition he or she will typically exhibit impulsive behaviors, such as acting out without considering the potential consequences. Children often have difficulty paying attention and may also be overly active.

Symptoms and Signs of ADD/ADHD

While most children can have a hard time behaving and focusing from time to time, children with ADD/ADHD do not grow out of this type of behavior. As a result, they often have difficulty at home and at school, and may also have a hard time making friends. These are just a few of the symptoms associated with the condition:

  • An inability to play quietly
  • Often interrupting others
  • Not listening to direction
  • Becoming distracted easily
  • Forgetfulness

There are several factors that go into determining a diagnosis of ADD/ADHD. There is no single diagnostic test, and symptoms are often similar to other problems such as depression, certain learning disabilities and anxiety. Medical professionals often perform thorough physical examinations, including vision and hearing tests, to rule out other issues.

 Treatment of ADD/ADHD

There are several types of medications that are commonly used to treat ADD/ADHD, many of which only need to be taken once a day. As long as they are used under the proper supervision, these drugs are often effective and safe. They can curb impulsiveness and hyperactivity, and help improve the child’s ability to focus and learn.
