FAQs

Q:
Do you take insurance?
A:

We designed our clinic to give you the best ADHD care available anywhere, and a lot of what we offer would not be covered by insurance. We do not take insurance because it allows us to focus on providing the best care in the most efficient and flexible way.

Q:
Are my visits really unlimited?
A:

Yes! We want to make sure you are getting the best care possible, and we are here for you as much as you need us. Get started!

Q:
Can I join the membership if I don’t live in Utah?
A:

Our coaching only membership is open to all regardless of where you live, however, we can only prescribe within the state of Utah.

Q:
Are ADHD medications addictive?
A:

There are several classes of ADHD medications, some of which can potentially be addictive. Our program is designed to minimize this risk, and we will discuss this and any other potential adverse medication effects (as well as alternative treatments) in detail during your visit.

Q:
What if I don’t want to take medication?
A:

You don’t have to! We offer comprehensive treatment, and medication is only one tool that you can use.

Q:
How often do I have to come into the office?
A:

Once. In order to start on a medication for ADHD treatment we need to have an
in-person consultation. During this visit, we'll discuss the different medication options that are available including the risks and benefits, check your blood pressure and do an EKG. You'll also go home with a personal blood pressure monitor so that you can periodically check and report back to us. Once we find a good medication and dose, we need to check in about once per quarter, just to make sure you are still doing well and not having any problems. This visit can be done online. This also gives us an opportunity to discuss any new options or additions to our clinic that might be helpful to you.

Q:
Can I come to the office? Do I have to do video appointments?
A:

An initial in-person meeting is required to start medications. After that, video appointments are the best way for us to optimize both your time and ours and allows us to provide the best care possible for you.

Q:
Do I have to do the Life Coaching? What if I don’t want to?
A:

We believe strongly in the power of Life Coaching to help you and ask you to at least give it a shot. There is a reason we chose to include this as one of our foundational services for our members! That being said, no one is going to check up on you to make sure you are doing it. You will get out of this program what you put into it.

Q:
What if I decide it’s not for me? Can I cancel my subscription?
A:

Cancel at any time, without hassle. Just let us know by contacting us at least a week prior to your monthly renewal date.

Q:
I’m not sure if I have ADHD. Can I still have a visit with Dr. Martineau?
A:

Our initial evaluation is a great way to find out if you have ADHD or not. Dr. Martineau is very thorough in this assessment and will give you a comprehensive psychiatric diagnosis along with understandable explanations, and help you make good decisions about what care is best for you, including whether you are a good fit for our clinic or not. While we can handle some co-existing conditions, our clinic is set up to provide optimal care for those struggling with ADHD, and we are not a general psychiatric clinic.

Q:
I’m not sure if I have ADHD. Can I still join the life coaching membership?
A:

The topics in our life coaching group are specifically focused on ADHD and designed to help people with ADHD thrive, but can definitely be helpful to others, so the group is not specifically limited to those with diagnosed ADHD.

Q:
How do I maintain privacy in a group coaching call?
A:

Group coaching is a great way to build skills that we have found to be very beneficial. While we do our best to respect your privacy, the group setting means that if you share personal details, other patients may hear them. Our membership agreement requires all of our members to respect the privacy of others, but if you have something too personal to share with your friends, family, or co-workers, the coaching group may not be the right place.
