Dr. Miguel J Morales has the following 3 specialties
- 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.
- Child and Adolescent 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.

I've read a bunch of reviews of this doctor, and I think a large portion of those reviews depict this doctor in an unfair way. I work in the field of mental health, and a considerable amount of my graduate research pertained to the efficacy of various treatments for mental health issues. That being said, this doctor uses approaches in line with the most current research for optimal efficacy and long term prognosis. Basically, his approach is well supported academically to support the long term well being of the client. I most definitely felt uneasy about his age, and he most definitely doesn't have the best "bed side manner." If you are looking for a quick fix or "feel good experience", this is probably not the doctor for you. This doctor is not going to put a band aid on a gushing wound. The approach this doctor takes is backed up by substantial research for the best long term prognosis of the client. I've never had a psychiatrist request blood tests or take my vitals. This is extremely rare in this profession and extremely important. He is not quick to prescribe pharmaceuticals, and he is absolutely right not to do so. Current research has not supported pharmaceuticals as the optimal treatment. Research does support CBT, and addressing the physical and other underlying issues for psychiatric problems. This doctor is an excellent choice if you actually want to get better. Unfortunately, his approach does not offer instant gratification. His approach is very nuanced and progressive. Because he is young, I suspect he is treating people in respect to the most current research. If you want a pill to make your problem go away, you are barking up the wrong tree. If you want to get better, he's the best shot I've seen in Florida. I think this doctor uses his medical background and understanding of current academic problems to address issues. If you're looking for a pill pusher don't go to this guy. And before you go to a pill pusher, I suggest you read some academic literature as to how well those pills actually work. I find the guy abrasive, but he knows what he is doing. I'd rather have a doctor that has poor bedside manner than a doctor with a pharmaceutical agency in his pocket. I think he is worth the money. I'd rather pay more now and take care of my issues than be paying some other doctor for the next 25 years.
I've had great progress working with Dr. Morales over the last 16 months. He listens, he doesn't push meds and he's very knowledgeable. I've worked with alot of Doctors in the past and never experienced progress like I have with Dr . Morales. His fees are normal for a qualified and quality psychiatrist. I submit the claim to insurance and receive reimbursement ... The first appointment was a little tough to get, but he's been very accomodating since. He's even talked me through some tough times over the phone without an appointment.
