Very, Very dissatisfied with Dr. Kent Kyger. We took our 5 year old daughter in for an evaluation on recommendation from our family doctor. On our first visit, while we were still filling our paperwork out, the doctor wanted to see our daughter. Fair enough. We were suppose to be involved in this evaluation, so we figured no harm since the paperwork would be done quick enough and we could go watch (as we are suppose to). No sooner did we get done, 20 minutes later, he came back with a diagnosis of ADHD and already had some drugs written up for her to start taking immediately. He wouldn't even explain this to both of us, just the mother. Excuse me? This was 20 minutes of watching a little girl that you don't know anything about and it's time to stick her on pills. No, I don't think so. You don't diagnose ADHD for someone you've never met in under 20 minutes. What a quack! We are taking her to another "specialist" who will do a proper diagnosis and have the nerve to talk to us about it. Parents be warned, don't let this guy stick your kids on pills just because he's in a hurry. Parents be warned of any quack who labels your kids as ADHD, ADD, etc. in only one short visit. A real specialist works with the kids and parents to make sure they are not misdiagnosed with the condition.
