Dr. Don Kerson
The Attention Doctor
For 25 years, Dr. Kerson has been treating hyperactive adults whose situation is complicated by other psychiatric conditions. He has developed a uniquely effective, comprehensive program for addressing the needs of adults suffering from ADD and the complicated array of unipolar and bi-polar depressions that so often co-exist with attentional difficulties.To our knowledge, no other treatment program integrates medication, psycho-education, meditational practices and targeted psychotherapies to address these complicated often long-suffering, but imminently treatable clients.
