I’m saddened to see false postings stating that I have connections to drug companies and Big Pharma. I do not, and it is slanderous to claim that I do. I’ve worked for my entire career to help people of all ages who have ADHD by using whatever methods help a specific person, always starting with education, then suggesting various other interventions from coaching to exercise to meditation to nutritional changes to neurofeedback, to parent and teacher training, and yes, sometimes to medication, which I closely monitor and supervise. This is the widely accepted standard of care. My philosophy to to use whatever intervention works, as long as it’s safe and it’s legal. Fortunately, we have many tools in our toolbox that can help people who have ADHD.
It distresses me that we live in a world where people can lodge false accusations with no regard for the truth and find an audience on social media. The truth is that I have no ties to drug companies. I serve no private interest or corporation. I am here to serve my patients, and to educate the general public through my books and lectures.
Please, let’s work together on social media to make the world a healthier more harmonious place. Let’s use this great tool to connect constructively with each other, not to tear one another down. Let’s start a movement together of spreading positive energy and good will. Let’s do all we can to build each other up. We all need daily doses of that. So let’s make it happen. Thanks very much.
