I very much need help for what I think is ADD and am looking for recommendations for psychiatrists in the Columbus area, particularly ones who accept BCBS. General advice on my situation also welcome; some details below.

I've been in therapy for depression for about a year. Right before I left Chicago in June, my therapist and I had begun to talk about getting me treated for ADD as well; however, I didn't have time to start this process there. In the meantime I've had a very stressful summer and now my ADD-like symptoms are significantly impacting my well-being, and I'm convinced I need to start treating this problem (ADD or not) as soon as possible.
For the next month and a half I'm in Columbus, Ohio. I think this is enough time to a) get an official diagnosis of ADD, if that's what this is and b) begin trying medication before I go back to Chicago in the fall, where I can switch my care to a psychiatrist there. I am therefore looking for recommendations for psychiatrists in this area who take BCBS insurance and who have experience treating adult ADD, and who would be able to see me in the relatively near future.
If anyone has any other advice for me I'd also like to hear that; to be honest I feel entirely overwhelmed and I'm not sure if this is a good plan or not.
