Dr. Brugman's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Brugman "Dr. Brugman has been practicing pediatrics for over 19 years. He always knew, even before he entered high school, that he wanted to be a pediatrician. Because he suffers from ADHD and dyslexia, he was told by parents and school advisors throughout college that his learning and behavioral problems might be obstacles too great to overcome. He knew that one thing is true about people with ADHD and that is they can hyper focus on what they want to achieve. He focused, overcame and succeeded. That’s why Dr. Brugman has such a passion for treating ADHD. Helping children overcome and change their lives is what he lives for. That is why for the last 15 years he has developed the reputation of being “The ADHD Doctor.” His passion and expertise concerning the proper treatment of ADHD has led him becoming an expert speaker for the pharmaceutical companies. Even though he is compensated by the pharmaceutical companies, he made it clear to them that his priority was not to promote their drugs but to make other primary care doctors more comfortable treating their patients suffering from ADHD. In addition, this relationship affords him the opportunity to travel throughout the country educating primary care physicians in the most effective treatment of ADHD. Not only does Dr. Brugman himself have ADHD but so does his wife and both children, therefore he understands all aspects of the diagnosis, as a patient, parent and spouse."
