OUR TEAM

Focus of Tampa Bay

Our mission is singularly focused on providing expert care and support for individuals living with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). At our dedicated practice, we understand that ADHD is not just a condition; it's a unique and multifaceted experience that affects individuals across all ages.

Our team of highly specialized and compassionate medical professionals is committed to helping those with ADHD lead fulfilling lives by providing comprehensive, evidence-based, and personalized care. We recognize that each person with ADHD has their own set of challenges and strengths, and we tailor our approach to address their specific needs.

At Focus of Tampa Bay, we believe that ADHD should not define you but empower you to unlock your full potential. We are dedicated to diagnosing, treating, and supporting individuals with ADHD on their journey toward better focus, improved executive function, and a brighter future. Whether you are seeking a diagnosis, looking for effective treatment options, or simply seeking guidance on managing your ADHD, we are here to guide and support you every step of the way.

“There is nothing more gratifying than making a positive difference, academically, behaviorally and socially, in the lives of those affected by ADHD.”

April Green, APRN is the owner and founder of Focus of Tampa Bay and is a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner. She has 14 years of clinical experience caring for children, adolescents, and young adults with ADHD, which began in 2010 while working in a prominent pediatric neurology practice in South Tampa. During that time Ms. Green developed a special interest in ADHD management, specifically in working closely with families in establishing proper diagnoses, treatment planning, and providing guidance and counseling related to social, emotional, behavioral, and educational impacts of the condition.

In 2018 she decided to open a medical practice exclusively dedicated to ADHD. Ms. Green has two sons, one of whom has been treated for ADHD since the age of 6. She personally knows the struggles that ADHD can pose in a child's life, as well as that of the family. But she has also witnessed firsthand how proper interventions and a multi-faceted approach can lead to amazing outcomes.
 

For eight years Ms. Green used the objective data from the Quotient® ADHD System to help guide treatment planning, including diagnosis and medication management. Her interpretation of over 5000 tests allowed her and her colleagues to provide a more comprehensive ADHD patient management approach. Ms. Green is now offering QbTest, an FDA-cleared device used in ADHD evaluations and medication management. She is proud to be able to offer testing, treatment, education, and community resources from the comfort of her office in South Tampa, as well as remotely through telehealth visits.
