Specialties

Dr. Americo F Padilla has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

Never call us or respond

I remember those days that I had problems with my daughter with her misdiagnosis and her physiology doctor call personally asked him for help and Mr. Padilla said: "I’ll let you know when I can see her". I when one to his office after that and wrote a paper with all the information about my daughter asking for an appointment and also the information of her insurance (Mr. Padilla was a provider at that moment) and he or any of his staff NEVER call me to let me know any answers . It’s very hard to admit since he is a doctor that he does not take time nor cares for some children. After all, I’m glad that she never had him as her physician.

Awesome psychiatrist

I used to see him when i was a teenager. He came to my defense when i was in the hospital and i was being treated like i brike the law as opposed to just having a condition. He got the person responsible for such harm fired. It us a shame he doesnt see adults.

Terrible Accessibility

I am sure he may have all the credentials but he never calls back. He does not take time nor cares to. Unfortunately mental health requires a lot of patience and assurance from a physician to help you understand it. He doesn't care to take the time or care about the issue. He wants you in and out of his office. God forbid you need him after hours.... He just says to go to the hospital. Terrible bed side manners. Would not recommend him to a fly.
