Many people associate Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) with children who have too much energy and are unable to focus in school or at home; however, the reality is that ADHD affects 4.4% of adults as well. The main symptoms of ADHD include inattention, distractibility, and impulsivity. In most cases, these symptoms are present in childhood but don’t become problematic until adulthood.
Dr. Hege has extensive experience diagnosing ADHD and treating it with the best choice of medication. He is familiar with the side effects that can occur with these medications and enjoys seeing the deepening satisfaction in patient relationships and careers when the correct medicine, optimal dose, and best timing of dosing are discovered.

Dr. Hege is a fantastic physician. As a patient living with ADHD since my teenage years, he is the only doctor I have ever seen that does not treat me differently cause of my illness; all the others doctors I saw previously were insensitive and treated me like I was a drug addict cause I asked for a prescription. Not Dr. Hege – he specializes in ADHD patients and he is the only one who actually took the time to monitor and change my dose as needed in order to ensure a better quality of life for me.
