I am looking to consult with a doctor online about possible

Customer Question

Hi, I am looking to consult with a doctor online about possible ADHD symptoms. Is this possible? Thanks.
JA: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?
Customer: I am in school 5 days a week, 7 hours a day. It is EXTREMELY hard to focus and concentrate. I feel as if i am too antsy, and when i start a task, i never finish it and move onto the next task. I also drive over an hour to and from school and have noticed i am having a hard time focusing while driving. It is become a big issue for me and I do not have time to even see a doctor during the week day.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I am pretty sure my mother has ADHD, but hasn't prescribed for it (that I know of). My grandfather is schizophrenic, my uncle has quite a few issues that are unknown to me.

do you have a primary doctor?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I do, but I am looking to switch to an adult physician as I am still seeing a pediatrician. She recommended i should get neuropsychological testing done, which does not spark my interest.
