    • DougLiving in and around the Silicon Valley most of my life, I can tell you that successful ADHD'S abound in all professions. The ability to go from the hyper-active mental state to the hyper-focus mental state is almost a requirement for a computer programmer. Surgeons also require this ability. A friend of mine is a highly regarded surgeon and there is no doubt in my mind he is ADHD. His wife confirms that he is totally hyper, but once he enters the operating room he is in hyper-focus mode. Many years ago a friend commented to me what a hyper bunch the surgeons at Stanford were. I assume once they start cutting they switch to hyper-focus mode. I don't know how many have been formally diagnosed. I assume if you are a surgeon, you must have done well in school so maybe they simply don't get diagnosed. They probably hyper focused on school work and not video games.15 hours ago

      I have found a pediatric Nero was the best thing I ever did for my son. If you have the insurance, schedule a consult. Can't hurt! It's what they specialize in. Plus, the good ones can take a month or more to get into. Start today, don't delay. Good luck!
