Dr. Melisa Pope, MD
I am the wife to and mother of three wonderful men who all have ADHD with comorbid conditions. Over my 23 years in primary care Pediatrics, I evolved a natural concern for ADHD patients and their families. I understood first hand their concerns and frustrations. Eventually I became the "go to" doctor in my practice for ADHD, and especially for the more complex patients that struggled with comorbid diagnoses (ODD, anxiety, etc.). Over time I became frustrated with not having the time allotted in my schedule to help families in the in-depth way I desired to. That was my motivation to seek a setting where I can spend time with each family to deliver high quality care.

Care Philosophy

ADHD is a complex condition, requiring expert care to prevent under- or over-diagnosis, misdiagnosis, and inadequate treatment. In primary care settings, doctors have very limited time (often only 10-20 minutes) to spend with the child and family. My history of dealing with ADHD as a wife, mother, and General Pediatrician for 23 years has given me the perspective on needing time to talk to families thoroughly to assess every aspect that impacts a child's world. Initial consultations are generally about 1.5 hours, with follow up visits up to an hour as needed by the individual patient and family. This allows for thorough evaluation, referrals to other supporting clinicians as indicated, and individualized, comprehensive treatment to maximize each patient's potential.
