A Better ADHD Test Leads to Better ADHD Treatment!

At Cathy Hart Family medicine, we are committed to treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) the right way!

That means taking the time to assess each one of our patients with the new QBTest for ADHD before we make a treatment recommendation or write a prescription, especially since many ADHD medications are considered controlled and dangerous substances by the FDA.

Our ADHD care includes a follow-up QBTest to assess the progress of treatment and urine screens to make sure your body is reacting appropriately to medications.

This thorough approach helps ensure the safest and most effective treatment for our patients.

To schedule your QBTest for ADHD at Cathy Hart Family Medicine, please call us at 832-585-0095.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions below to learn more about the QBTest.

Why Is It Important to Take the QBTest Before Treatment Begins?
There are three main symptoms associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD):

Hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention or distractibility.

Not all children and adults have the same ADHD symptoms. In fact, many people experience just one of the three symptoms. Different ADHD medications are more effective on different symptoms, so knowing which symptoms you have makes a big difference in your treatment!

Because of this, we are pleased to offer the QBTest for ADHD. The QBTest measures each of the core symptoms associated with ADHD. This test helps us choose the right treatments for our patients with ADHD and more accurately measure the effectiveness of these treatments.

The QBTest is easy to complete and takes only 15 to 20 minutes. Good studies prove its accuracy and the QBTest is approved by the FDA.

What Is the QBTest for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)?
The QBTest is a computer-based assessment tool that measures the core symptoms associated with ADHD: hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention or distractibility.

It compares results with a group of non-ADHD people of the same age and gender to provide objective data that helps healthcare professionals diagnose, treat, and monitor children and adults with ADHD.

The QBTest is cleared by the FDA for both diagnosis and treatment monitoring.
How Does the QBTest Work?
This ADHD test is performed on a computer. It uses an infrared camera, a headband with a reflective marker, and a response button.

The QBTest takes 15 to 20 minutes and is simple to complete.

The results of the test are not affected by a person's language, reading, or mathematics skills. The results are not affected by whether a person is good at computer games. The camera collects data on where and how the marker is moved only. It does not collect or record any images.
Who Can Take the QBTest?
Boys and girls, men and women, between the ages of 6 and 60 can take this ADHD test. The tasks the QBTest asks people to perform vary depending on age.
Is the QBTest Covered by Insurance?
Yes, most major health insurance plans cover the QBTest as part of the cost of treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
How Common is ADHD?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder affects between 3% and 7% of all school-age children. Between 30% and 50% of children with ADHD will continue to have symptoms into adulthood.
What Happens When a Person Has ADHD?
People with ADHD can find it hard to maintain their focus on one task. Sometimes they seem not to be listening when people speak to them. They may struggle to follow directions. They can find it hard to engage in quiet activities. Children and adults with ADHD often fidget or squirm in their seats.
How Do Health Professionals Treat ADHD?
There are many good treatments for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Stimulants and other kinds of medications are effective at helping children and adults manage their ADHD.

Social Skills training can be useful to children with ADHD. Older children often benefit from speaking with a counselor. There are effective behavior-changing strategies parents and teachers can learn.
