The Everett Clinic's ADHD Clinic is a community-based, specialty clinic led by Ron Okialda, ARNP. It focused on personalized care to evaluate, monitor and manage pediatric patients who may have ADHD. Treatment focuses on improving quality of life by treating the behavioral issues that can interfere with learning and socialization.
The ADHD clinic is offered in Harbour Pointe(Mukilteo) and Marysville and focuses on providing care for pediatric patients from their time of diagnosis through their high school years (ages 4-18).
“I have a special interest in ADHD since this is an area that I can hopefully help my patient succeed in school. I strive to partner with my patient’s parents to come up with a treatment plan that meets their needs, but that it also is effective.” — Ron Okialda, ARNP
Medication Refill Requests
- Requests for medication refills may be made online through our MyChart patient portal or by calling our office at 360-651-7492.
- If a medication refill is requested and your child has not had a re-evaluation within the last 6 months, you will be given a 1-month prescription and asked to schedule a visit. No further refills will be given until your child has been seen by a provider and is current for follow-up visits.
- If your child has been off medications for more than 3-6 months, he/she must be seen by a provider for a follow-up visit before medication will be prescribed.
- If your child has been off medication for more than 1 year, he/she must be seen for a new initial evaluation before medication will be prescribed.
- Currently, most ADHD prescriptions are written prescriptions, it cannot be called in. Each prescription written is only good for a 30-day supply of medications.
- We ask parents to call or send a message via MyChart at least 3 business days before a supply of medication runs out to arrange for a new prescription to be written. A parent or their authorized representative may pick up and sign for the prescription. The person picking up the prescription will need a photo ID for pick up.
- After the initial evaluation and diagnosis of ADHD, a medication recheck visit should be scheduled in 3-4 weeks to discuss how things are going and deal with any immediate problems or concerns. Additional office visits may be necessary until we feel that your child is doing well on the medication prescribed.
- An ADHD follow-up evaluation should be scheduled 3-6 months after the initial evaluation. This visit will require new parent and teacher forms to be completed and evaluated by the provider (see forms under resources).
- If no significant changes are made at the 6-month follow up, your child should return for an ADHD follow-up visit every 6 months. These visits include follow-up forms from parents and teachers. If medication changes are made at any 6-month follow up, the provider may want to see your child again prior to the next follow-up visit.
- The Everett Clinic requires an annual well-care appointment for all children on ADHD medications. Your child must be current on his/her well-care exams to continue ADHD medications.
- For assistance with scheduling follow-up appointments, you can send a message via MyChart or call 360-651-7492.
