My Doctor is Skeptical About Neurofeedback… What Should I Do?

Your doctor may not be aware of this specific type of biofeedback. Maintaining healthy skepticism about any new approach claiming these kinds of benefits across disorders is normal. Ask your doctor to review recent research on the effectiveness of Neurofeedback. Research is most readily available at ISNR and sites listed below:
