ADHD Focused New Patient Appointments
Dr. Kumar has a special interest in issues related to executive function and performance. If you are curious about ADHD — and do NOT have a significant history of anxiety, depression, or addiction — this may be the right appointment type for you. ADHD cannot be diagnosed without screening for all of the other possible causes of symptoms of inattention, and so this evaluation is comprehensive.
He can not only prescribe medications, but also begin the important process of understanding where the neurological aspects of ADHD ends and the psychological damage begins.
Dr. Kumar is currently accepting patients for all insurances he accepts, which are listed below.
Comprehensive New Patient Appointments
This evaluation type is longer than the ADHD Focused Appointment, with a broader scope and is appropriate for patients with any issues (mood swings, anxiety, cognitive, depression, impulsivity, etc).
Dr. Kumar currently cannot take on new talk therapy cases if they are utilizing insurances he is in-network with (BCBS/BCN). If you are using any other insurance, he can see you for talk therapy!
