It is always recommended that a psychiatrist or pediatrician do a comprehensive assessment of a child with suspected ADHD. It is also important that comorbid conditions, and conditions that "mimic" ADHD be excluded. This cannot be done during an average GP consultation (of 15min). Once the diagnosis is confirmed, and the child is stabilised on medication, then the child can be followed up by the GP.
