"I have known John Bailey M.D. for almost 20 years, in my role as ADDA (Attention Deficit Disorder Association) President, as an ADHD coach, and when I started the ADD Coach Academy in 1998. Throughout all these roles he has been a wonderful mentor and friend. John is one of the most knowledgeable ADHD family physicians with a specialty in helping patients with medication adjustments that significantly improve the impairing challenges of their ADHD. He is also dedicated to detecting and managing other conditions of patients which complicate the treatment of ADHD.
At past ADDA conferences his sessions are packed and so well received because he has a way of explaining the practical application of ADHD medications, as well as the co-morbid/co-occurring conditions in a way that anyone can understand.
In addition to his friendship, What I most appreciate about John is his quick wit and great sense of humor. John graciously shared some humorous quotes from ADHD patients he has worked with over a number of years. Not only did they hit home, right in the center of my humor muscle, but they also hit the reality button in my head. John brings out the best in everyone with ADHD.
Dr J., we are so thankful for who you are and what you do to make the world for those with ADHD a more joyful, fulfilling place. Thanks for these humorous quotes, which people who have ADHD will immediately relate to. The quotes also help make people with ADHD aware that they are not alone in the challenges that so many people with ADHD face every day .
Finally, John thanks for modeling and teaching me how important it is to have a sense of humor when living with your own ADHD."
