Dr. Sterling's Adult ADD Factbook is Out!

    Dr. Sterling has excerpted his very comprehensive Understanding ADD chapter from his forthcoming book The Culture Genes -- Why America's Greatest Strength is Also its Greatest Weakness (tm). It is available as a 256-page paperback. It is also available as a Kindle and as a Nook Book. You don't need to buy a Kindle or a Nook to read books. There are free downloads of software for PC and Mac use.

    In addtion to the 2011 book, Dr. Sterling has published a 2013 update.

  • Click here to find the paperback edition of Dr. Sterling's book: Adult ADD Factbook -- The Truth About Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Updated November 2011 (tm).

  • Click here to go to the Kindle page for Dr. Sterling's book: Adult ADD Factbook -- The Truth About Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Updated November 2011 (tm).

    Click here to find free downloads of Kindle application software for PC and Mac.

    The book's strength is in its ability to arrive at a balance between scientific truth (which requires some technical and scientific language) and user-friendliness. It uses language and concepts that are easy to understand and remember, without dumbing down the very important scientific findings about the upside and the downside of the ADD brain.

    The Adult ADD Factbook will help you understand how the current narrow definition and the stigma related to ADD clearly subvert a true estimate of the prevalence of ADD and of many other dopamine deficiency conditions in the entire Western Hemisphere.

    ADD is the current poster child for a large number of dopamine deficiency conditions that are significantly responsible for "nicotinism," alcoholism, obesity, many eating disorders, insomnia, fibromyalgia, and the over-use of marijuana, cocaine, illicit methamphetamine, and opioids, among many others (gambling, over-spending, impulse-control problems of all kinds, etc.).

    The Adult ADD Factbook will also allow you to learn about the genetics of ADD, the upside of ADD, and some of the cultural and social implications of the many dopamine deficiency conditions. It has been called "a game changer." It has been written as much for non-ADDers as for ADDers.

Travel Advisory: SR-520 is Occasionally Closed on Weekends (Use I-90).

What's New at Bellevue Psychiatry?
    Please note: Dr. Sterling is no longer doing home or assisted living visits for new clients. However, he will continue to provide those services for his current or past clients. In addition, Dr. Sterling is no longer providing specialized dementia evaluations or dementia care for older adults.

    With respect to new evaluations, second opinions, and diagnostic evaluations, Dr. Sterling recommends a 100-minute first evaluation appointment. This allows him and his client to get to a point in the evaluation process at which Dr. Sterling has obtained enough information to offer valid professional opinions about a client's core issues and probable diagnosis, if any. Dr. Sterling can also usually offer some recommendations and discuss potential treatment strategies during that first 100-minute evaluation appointment.

    It is not required that you choose a 100-minute first appointment. If you are simply transferring from another provider situation or have recently moved or are anticipating moving and are very happy with your current treatment strategies, it is possible for Dr. Sterling to provide your follow-up care without doing a comprehensive "re-evaluation."

    • Office Visit Fees (Individual, Couple or Family) --

      • Diagnostic Evaluation and Consultation (100 minutes): $380.00
      • Psychotherapy (50 minutes): $190.00
      • Psychotherapy (25 minutes): $100.00
      • Medication Evaluation and Consultation (50 minutes): $190.00
      • Medication Management, Follow-up (25 minutes): $100.00
      • Consultations lasting longer than 50 minutes will be prorated accordingly ($3.80 per minute).
