Dr. Shallcross performs diagnostic psychological testing and neuropsychological screening at area psychiatric hospitals (Ridgeview Institute, Peachford, and Anchor) and receives referrals from prominent Atlanta area psychiatrists, psychologists, and other physicians for diagnostic testing and assistance in medication management and treatment planning.
An appointment with Dr. Shallcross consists of a single visit appointment with clinical interview and testing for the assessment and diagnosis of ADHD. The testing measures working memory, immediate auditory attention, vigilance, speed for visual search, and mental flexibility. As ADHD is a diagnosis of exclusion, one or two additional hours may be required for evaluation of any concomitant mood/psychiatric disorders (ages 9-adult) and screening for learning disorders (ages 7-12).
