Welcome to ADD Center of Bellevue, your source for comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and treatment for ADHD (includes ADD and ADHD). We can also help diagnose and manage co-occurring conditions. We do not diagnose or treat Learning Disorders, but we can direct you to professionals who do. We provide diagnosis evaluations, treatment, education and support for parents and families of those with ADHD, as well as coordination of care with other specialists in the field, and with your Primary Care Practitioner as needed. Our goal is to be the best "in-person" resource for all your questions and issues concerning all aspects of ADHD.
*******NEW PATIENT INFORMATION ******* In order to provide you the best evaluation, we need to gather information about you and your current symptoms, past medical history, current medical conditions, prior to your visit. This is done through 2 links in the New Patient section to the left; in the Patient Portal, and the Symptom Assessment. When you call to schedule your appointment, you will be asked to complete these steps at least 48 BUSINESS HOURS PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT. If this is not done by that time, we will have to CANCEL your appointment, and reschedule once you have completed these steps. If you have difficulty completing these items, please call us so we can help you through it - 425.454.8684. Please, don't wait until the day before... :)
