Care Philosophy

I've established Spokane's only child & adult psychiatry practice devoted to the assessment and treatment of ADHD and related issues in both kids and adults. Why ADHD? Because I love working with the unique strengths and challenges that kids and adults have with ADHD. If you've been lead to see ADHD only as a "disease," problem or burden, then we need to talk! ADHD is best seen as a collection of neuropsychological traits, both positive and not-always-so-positive, that can present us with both challenges and strengths, depending often upon the context of the situation. I love working with people to find the best ways for them to maximize the strengths and minimize the challenges presented by ADHD. And I know whereof I speak. I've dealt with ADHD traits in myself and family. I went from struggling in high school before obtaining a GED, to graduating from medical school with honors and then doing residency training in both general psychiatry and child psychiatry at one of the very top universities in the country (Go UCLA Bruins!). I strive to provide comprehensive, positive and compassionate care for both children and adults, with an emphasis upon conservative treatment including both medication and non-medication alternatives. We start with a thorough evaluation taking into account a person's strengths as well as challenges. This is the cornerstone of good treatment. We'll do a careful review for signs and symptoms of psychiatric, medical and learning issues that may look like ADHD, but lead to misdiagnosis and treatment that is ineffective and possibly harmful. From there, we'll go on to develop together a treatment plan that may include medication, organizational skills work, counseling, supplements or diet/lifestyle changes. www.SpokaneADHDClinic.comRead more

I've found Dr. Beck to be professional and engaged. He has been working with me for the past 5 months, since I moved to the area recently and needed to find a new doctor. The staff he has is enjoyable to deal with and the office is comfortable.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
