Welcome to DocDiller.com
I'm a behavioral/developmental pediatrician who has been on the front-lines of clinical practice with ADHD, ODD, OCD, ASD, learning problems for over thirty years. I've written some books and numerous articles for professionals and the public. My opinions have been expressed not only on television and radio, but also in front of Congress and the President's Council on Bioethics.
Whether you're looking for an sensible expert to help you make decisions about your child locally or are interested in the opinions of a doctor who prescribes medications to children but takes a broader look at the issues involved, you've come to the right place. Take a look at the opeds. Get some answers to questions on ADHD and psychiatric drugs for children.
I'm pleased that my comments from an interview appear today at the end of a New York Times article on the new American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for the evaluation and treatment of ADHD/ADD. In particular the article focuses on the new recommendations to use stimulant medication with children as young as four. My comments are at the very end of the piece which suggest the reporter/editors wanted to leave the reader with my opinions at the very end. I feel honored that they chose me.
