ADD Diagnosis, Medications, and Resources in New York City
Welcome to ADHD Meds in NYC.
Although this site contains information for ADHD patients living in New York City, most of the information applies to ADHD patients worldwide. The site was designed by Dr. Nicholas Schwartz, MD. Dr. Schwartz is a graduate of the Yale University School of Medicine. He is Board-certified in both Psychiatry and Emergency Medicine and has a specialty practice in Adult ADHD medication management, which he runs from his office in Manhattan.
Because the practice mainly focuses on ADHD medications, the information contained here is weighted toward pharmacological treatment. However, also included is information about ADHD diagnosis, psychotherapy, and resources in NYC. The site is intended to be an information source for both practitioners and patients.
A note on terminology: depending on which symptoms are present, one might receive a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Although there are some differences between the two, for simplicity's sake this site uses only the term Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD.
Please feel free to browse through the information posted here. For those interested in more in depth information on any of the topics found here, there is a link to some excellent books on the subject. For a consultation with Dr. Schwartz, please contact him at his Manhattan office.
