As of 2008, the National Resource Center for AD/HD cites at least 4% of the adult population has AD/HD. For many adults, if they were not diagnosed as a child, they are unaware that they are AD/HD as an adult. AD/HD can create many challenges for adults that impact them professionally, personally, socially and emotionally. Determining that AD/HD is real and affecting one’s life is the first step to improving the quality of life for adults living with AD/HD.
Diego Escobosa, MD leads Anne Arundel ADD Center. Having worked with children in his pediatric practice, Bayside Pediatrics, for more than 17 years, Dr. Escobosa learned much about children and teens dealing with the challenges that come with AD/HD. AD/HD is often hereditary and having parents of children with AD/HD make their own discovery of their AD/HD, Dr. Escobosa started educating himself and treating adults with AD/HD.
Dr. Escobosa has been working with adults with ADHD for several years, helping them uncover the ways their lives have been impacted by AD/HD, determining the correct treatment path and developing solutions for living with AD/HD and having the best quality of life. Since Dr. Escobosa is also a full-time partner in Bayside Pediatrics, he is working to add professionals to provide additional services. Understanding AD/HD medically is the first step to improving Dr. Escobosa’s patients’ lives, but having spent their lives coping with something they didn’t realize was there, these patients can be affected by career challenges, relationship issues and the complexity of managing emotional that are often symptomatic of AD/HD. Dr. Escobosa helps patients find additional resources to work through the issues and challenges and create successful habits for those living with AD/HD, to improve their quality of life.
Dr. Escobosa began practicing pediatric medicine in Annapolis in1998, as a co-founder of Bayside Pediatrics. Dr. Escobosa has a medical degree from Stonybrook Medical School and completed his residency at the University of Maryland.
