    About Us

    Our practice provides comprehensive, compassionate care to infants, children and teens. We will address your child’s medical needs as well as growth and developmental issues. Ideally we become your partners. Our goal is to assist you in helping your child reach their full potential. We ask that you choose a primary care physician. This is the physician with whom you will schedule you child’s check-ups and most of your office visits.

    We are a member of the Medical Group of the Carolinas (MGC), a large multi-specialty physician group serving the Upstate. The doctors in the MGC are dedicated to meeting your healthcare needs for wellness and prevention to the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses.

    Attention Deficit Disorder

    Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is usually diagnosed in childhood and is characterized by some or all of the following: a persistent pattern of impulsiveness, short attention span, easily distracted, restlessness, fidgeting, and hyperactivity. These can interfere with academic, occupational and social performance.

    ADD facts:

    • Condition starts in early childhood
    • Up to one-fifth of cases resolve, but the rest continue through adulthood
    • Poor and inconsistent ability to maintain attention
    • Trouble ignoring distractions, both external and internal
    • Often a feeling of restlessness
    • Cannot stand boredom
    • Many, but not all, with ADD are impulsive, to one degree or another
    • This condition tends to run in families and has no relation to IQ
    • The core symptoms can also be seen in anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and sleep deprivation
    • Medication does not cure, but it can be very helpful in up to 90 percent without causing personality changes or other significant side effects
    • Long-term outcome, however, depends on non-medication treatments and strategies

    When to seek medical help:

    • You have a diagnosis of ADHD or ADD and are already on medication, but you are not sure your medicine is doing all that you want it to. • You have a diagnosis and stopped taking medication, but you would like to give it another try. • You’re not sure if you might have ADD/ADHD, and you would like to look into it further.

    We can diagnose and treat your ADHD and keep your regular doctor informed; but you should continue to see him or her for your medical care.

    If you are already on medication for ADD/ADHD, we can:

    • Make sure your medication is doing all that it can
    • Make sure your medication is working when you need it
    • Eliminate side effects
    • Look for other issues which may not respond to ADHD medication
    • Evaluate your non-medication treatments:
      • Diet
      • Exercise
      • Sleep
      • Compensatory strategies
