Pre-completed forms and prescriptions sounds highly suspicious. Any complaints regarding a medical professional can be made to the Health Professions Council on www.hpcsa.co.za. It may be worthwhile to get a second opinion on your son's diagnosis. The Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Support Group of South Africa can recommend a professional in your area; although you feel it is not ADHD, a comparative assessment to the one supposedly done at the recent doctor may be informative. I wish to add that there is a distinction between ADD and ADHD; ADD refers to a difficulty with concentration, while ADHD refers to the difficulty in concentration together with hyperactivity - your son may well be placid (not hyperactive) but may have concentration difficulties. The Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Support Group of South Africa can be contacted on www.adhasa.co.za.
