At Carolina Attention Specialists, we emphasize the importance of spending enough time with your doctor in order to have a thorough assessment of your medical history and attention concerns. Therefore, expect to spend around 2-3 hours in our office during your first visit. First, computer based testing will be done, and then you will spend roughly an hour with your doctor. He/she will review your history and computer tests, make a preliminary diagnosis, and provide a treatment plan. A follow up visit will occur in 2 to 3 weeks. Testing will be done again to help assess side effects, treatment effectiveness, and to achieve medication dose optimization.
In order to ensure the correct medication, dose and treatment plan, our doctors follow their patients very closely. Therefore, follow up typically occur on a monthly basis in the beginning. Once you and your doctor have established a treatment plan that is effective and you are comfortable with, routine follow up visits will occur every three months. In between appointments, we urge patients to communicate with their doctors through our patient portal.
