My name is Tim Bilkey. I am a physician specializing in the assessment and treatment of adult Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I have been working in this area since 1996 and since that time have assessed over 3500 people.

Through our work, we have witnessed the positive impact of a diagnosis of ADHD and how well people respond to a combination of interventions. Our treatment recommendations are highly individual and tailored to the needs of each person.

I have developed a nationally accredited program, FAST MINDS™, to help physicians learn how to recognize ADHD in adults.Finally, I have co-authored a self-help book on Adult ADHD, titled FAST MINDS: How to Thrive if You Have ADHD (Or Think You Might) through Penguin Group (USA).
