Specialties

Dr. Michael J Fermo has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • 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.

Empathetic yet very down to business. I see him for medication management. I had a difficult time adjusting my meds and felt his response was a bit slow.

INSENSITIVE

I WAS HAVING TERRIBLE SIDE EFFECTS FROM A MEDICATION; GEODONE… AGITATION, HOSTILITY AND CONFUSION… HE INSISTED I STAY ON THE MEDICATION AND WOULD NOT PRESCRIBE AN ALTERNATE. HE IS VERY ARROGANT AND INSISTED I CONTINUED WITH MEDICATION AND REFUSED TO TREAT ME IN THE FUTURE. I HAD JUST WAS RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL AND NORMALLY WITH NEW MEDS APPOINTMENTS ARE WITHIN 1 MONTH. HE SIDE HE NO LONGER WANTED TO TREAT ME BECAUSE I ASKED FOR AN ALTERNATION MEDICATION.

I have been seeing Dr Fermo for more than 10 years. My insurance changed and my new insurance was not contracted with him. I was devastated. For 2 years I struggled and went through a minimum of 6 other providers. None of which I felt comfortable talking to. My insurance changed again and I learned that he accepted my new insurance. I don't ever want to see another psychiatrist. He is absolutely the best. I would recommend him to anyone!
