Dr. Hunt's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hunt "For more than three decades, Dr. Hunt has been counted among the most influential and pioneering physicians and researchers in the world when it comes to the treatment of attention disorders in adults and children. Following his medical education at University of California San Francisco Medical Center and Harvard University, Dr. Hunt worked as a research psychiatrist at the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH). He then directed the clinical research program in ADD/ADHD at Yale School of Medicine and later at Vanderbilt School of Medicine. A recognized innovator, Dr. Hunt pioneered early research in the use of Adderall and significantly contributed to the understanding of the neurobiology of arousal and attention. He holds three significant patents related to psychiatric treatment. His initial research at Yale lead to the development and patent of Intuniv, one of the most effective non-stimulant medications used to treat ADHD in children. At the Center for Attention and his company, Hunt Psychiatric Innovations, Dr. Hunt developed and patented the process for personalized medication that utilizes mobile devices to optimize medication treatment. Despite his thought leadership in Attention Disorders, Dr. Hunt has never stopped seeing adults and children as part of his daily practice as the head of the Nashville Center of Attention and credits his patients as his most important teachers."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hunt "At the Center for Attention, we believe in healing the whole person, not just reducing or eliminating symptoms. Although medication may be useful and necessary in treating an illness, it is often the beginning, not the end, of treatment.

True "wellness" includes care for body, mind, and spirit. We strive to help our clients embrace life by helping them find meaning and purpose and the ability to achieve their goals in all areas of their lives.

Whether they need help with emotional injuries, aid in a struggle with addiction, or guidance in unlocking their productivity at work, we help our clients heal and improve their quality of life."

Patient Comments (1)

This man did nothing but push medications on me, and once I was physically dependent on them, made a move on me. I've since learned that he has a history of this. That's all anyone needs to know about him.
