Psychiatrists in Spokane

Thomas Beck, Psychiatrist  in Spokane
“I've established Spokane's only child & adult psychiatry practice devoted to the assessment and treatment of ADHD and related issues in both kids and adults. Why ADHD? Because I love working with the unique strengths and challenges that kids and adults have with ADHD. If you've been lead to see ADHD only as a "disease," problem or burden, then we need to talk! ADHD is best seen as a collection of traits, both positive and not-always-so-positive, that can present us with both challenges and strengths, depending often upon the context of the situation.
