How This Doctor is Thriving With ADHD with Dr. Diana Mercado

How This Doctor is Thriving With ADHD with Dr. Diana Mercado

In this episode, I speak to Dr. Diana Mercado, a family medicine physician in Texas. Dr. Mercado graduated from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Chemistry, earned her medical degree from the University of Texas, and did her residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Diana became a family medicine physician so that minority patients would have a physician who “looks like them.” 


Today Dr. Diana Mercado is a mentor, Clinic Medical Director, and was recently elected Chief Medical Officer for Jackson County Hospital in Texas.


In a nutshell, we speak about:

  • Dr. Mercado's struggles in medical school
  • The circumstances surrounding Dr. Mercado's ADHD diagnosis
  • Dr. Mercado's symptoms in childhood and what changed once she was diagnosed
  • The ADHD traits that make Dr. Mercado a better doctor
  •  The key to living successfully with ADHD

... and so much more!
