My husband has agreed to get an ADHD eval. We live in the Philly area and I believe we have a number of great resources in this area. I have a few questions:
- Should we see a psychologist for an eval?
- Can a psychologist prescribe medicine or would we need to be referred to a psychiatrist?
- Our local hospital has an ADD Adult center that provides an eval for $1500, but it seems awfully expensive. In the long run, I wonder if we would be better served by finding a qualified psychologist instead?
Any thoughts and/or recommendations of qualified places for evals in the Philly area? Thanks!
