What has the doctor suggested is causing these behaviors?   Did he act like this in front of the doctor?

I think you need a much more thorough screening than a quick pediatric appointment if that's what this was.

Call your school for a list of local Occupational Therapists and get him tested - the test should be several hours long and involve some sitting cognitive tasks and some physical tasks.
