In an era where typical ADHD evaluations can cost upwards of $2000, with a month or more of waiting for the appointment, and another month for a report (which most people cannot understand), how can Dr. Bloom offer a worthwhile ADHD evaluation for only $365? Something that inexpensive cannot be worthwhile, can it? Yes, it can. Here is why:
There is a vast amount of ADHD research that demonstrates behavioral ratings do a better job of diagnosing ADHD than do batteries of in-office neuropsychological tests. Using well chosen, science-based rating scales (the same ones you would get in the expensive in-office evaluations), combining them with a thoroughly taken history, behavioral rating scales screening for co-existing conditions, and collaborative feedback sessions, the job of accurately detecting ADHD is well within our ability, both to detect ADHD and to assess co-existing emotional, behavioral, social, academic or developmental complicating factors.
Isn’t expensive in-office neuropsychological testing worth the extra cost for peace of mind that nothing is overlooked? I’ve spent a career doing expensive in-office neuropsychological testing for ADHD. Some of my former students still do. I’ve made switch to the $365 model confident that I won’t miss important details. I head a team of well trained, closely supervised staff. We thoroughly review every case, every detail. In situations where more testing is needed (only about 10-15% of the cases), I make that recommendation. I explain the reason and the additional cost involved. For most cases, the $365 model performs wonderfully.
