I came across a doctor in Ocala that everyone was talking about so I did what I needed to do to get my son into that doctors office and also told my niece she should take her two sons there. Well were those people wrong, we adopted our son and he was very out of control so everyone said he is just a very bad kid, very very bad. As a parent you never stop trying to help your child, so when I went to this doctor he sent him to get tested and they said he is ADHD take these pills and it did help some but just seems there should be something else we could do, after all it calmed him but he still was getting into trouble daily in school and failing his classes.
Then when my nephews went there and the one was sick and we was told he has Myasthenia Gravis so of course as a doctor we believed he was going to help because the doctor that said he had it was an hour away. Well he said he didn’t really know much about that so he would need to go the doctor an hour away when he was sick. Well I said we just need to find a new doctor after all he does seem like he wants to find how to help these boys and we are driving far to get to him and because he said my son had ADHD he couldn’t come when other kids are there they had times set aside for those kids.
We started just looking around and there was a doctor just right around the corner from our house, it was a tucked away office I hadn’t heard about and when I went there to see about them it was just him and a nurse/rep. working. Well I spoke to the doctor asking him things and telling him about our son and even telling him I have a nephew with Myasthenia Gravis and by time I left I knew this was where I needed to take our son.
When I took our son there and the doctor did some testing he found out some of his past, he said he isn’t ADHD he is ADD and with the right medicine and love he will get right on track. Well he also said maybe he needs a different school environment, all kids learn differently. We did the different things he said and our son started doing so much better in school and that he needs to pace himself and things are easier in life. Did also find out that because of the abuse he received from birth to four he does have slight brain damage and can’t contain some things and needs to go by a list to get ready in the morning and doesn’t know how to make the right decision on impulse things.
Well then the doctor who came to our rescue said his office that was just around the corner from our house was moving his office about 35 mins from our house, well although around the corner was great it was a no brainer he needed to stay with this doctor and to top that off he has said how our son should from the time we started going to him should do a sport like karate or kung fu and we own a school so that was great. Well to sum it up this doctor will be our child’s doctor until he can’t go there any more.
Thank you Dr. Eunus for everything.
