About Arif Mirza, MD & Germantown Private Psychiatry PLLC
Germantown Private Psychiatry PLLC has provided top quality care to children, teens and adults in the mid-south region. Dr. Mirza, a highly trained Child, Adolescent & Adult Psychiatrist is board certified by American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology. Our treatment philosophy ensures careful integration from the fields of neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry, child development and education for diagnosis and treatment. "We've partnered with NEBA Health to assist us with our patients presenting with attention and behavior problems. We use the best tools possible to aid with our diagnosis," said Dr. Mirza.
NEBA is a 15 to 20 minute test that integrates an EEG biomarker for ADHD into the clinical setting. Using NEBA, clinicians can significantly reduce the number of patients receiving ADHD treatment and management as the initial focus when another condition would potentially be the primary diagnosis. In the FDA validation study, NEBA reduced the potential for over-diagnosis from 34% to 3%. NEBA also provides confirmatory support for ADHD with an accuracy of 92%. Clinicians conduct their evaluation as in their regular practice using their usual assessment tools. NEBA uses EEG to separate ADHD patients into biomarker-based groups with clinical differences that allow validated recommendations to be offered to the clinicians.
Dr. Steve Snyder, Vice President of Research and Development said, "NEBA can help the clinician to confirm ADHD as primary diagnosis, and can help the clinician to determine whether ADHD-like symptoms may be better explained by another primary condition. A clinician using NEBA is more likely to converge upon diagnostic evaluation results of a multidisciplinary team."
