Does anyone know if you can get a formal diagnosis/evaluation for ADHD from a telemedicine provider like dialcare? Dialcare is the only mental health option my insurance covers and I know all the mental health providers through Dialcare have some sort of professional license but idk if they would do a formal evaluation for ADHD

      @TheRadicalEdward psychologists can diagnose as well.

      ADHD generally needs an evaluation by a psychologist and generally is several hours in person.

      They have Licensed therapist. You will go through the screening just the same. The therapist will most likely ask for blood work to rule out anything else that could affect you mentally. Then talk to you about the different routes of treatment if needed.

      You can try asking for one or all of the following online screening tests: CAARS-L:S/O Brown EF/A scales ASSET-BS ASRS-5 WURS This is how I was “officially” diagnosed even though others had diagnosed me through a verbal evaluation. I hope this helps!

      I’ve only ever spoken to my psychiatrist over the phone, & she emailed a screening test & orally interviewed me to confirm diagnosis. Good luck!!! :)

      As long as they're a psychiatrist, they should be able to. Mine was just an oral interview, but I know there are other methods.

      I think that it depends on your country.

          @Addy97 then explain your situation to who you need to share the diagnosis with and they should accept it.
