February 2020 Update:
After almost one year of being closed for new referrals, Dr. Kenny Handelman is opening his practice for new referrals – for the assessment of ADHD and comorbid conditions in children, teens and adults.
This new comprehensive assessment will include a specialty assessment for symptoms and functioning, as well as testing. The testing will include standardized measures of symptoms and strengths, as well as brain-based testing to measure neuropsychological functioning and attention. This will allow for a thorough understanding of the nature of symptoms and impairment, as well provide for the ability to monitor functioning over time (for example, measuring improvement with treatment). It will also allow for the development of a comprehensive treatment plan to support the patient’s treatment.
Dr. Handelman’s assessment will be covered by OHIP and there will be a fee payable for the testing. Patients may be eligible for insurance reimbursement for some of the testing fee.
To see Dr. Handelman for a consultation, you’ll need to get a Medical Doctor to send a referral, and then our office will contact you to start the process of completing the initial questionnaires and then booking the consultation. At the end of the process, the referring physician will receive a consultation report, and the patient and/or family will receive a report summarizing the findings of the assessment, along with treatment recommendations.
Due to the high demand for assessments, Dr. Handelman will provide consultations and treatment recommendations, and he may provide brief follow up. Referring physicians should be prepared to receive the patient back and work on the implementation of the treatment recommendations.
Please note that the Centre for Integrative Mental Health does have other services, including psychotherapy for kids, their parents, and teens & adults for ADHD, behavioural management, depression/anxiety and more. We also have Naturopathic doctors who can provide natural treatment recommendations (and they work with an integrative approach that can include medication). You do not need a referral to access these services.
Please contact our office if you have any questions about the new consultation.
