Dr. Ricardo Bernal has the following 3 specialties
- Child & 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.
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.

At 9 years old, my son has seen more doctors than most. Many are quick to put him in a box and label him with a "one size fits all" diagnosis. Dr. Bernal is the exception. He sits down with my son- he speaks with him, he listens to him. He understands him. Most importantly, he is a kind and patient man. Dr. Bernal has done more for my son (and my family) in one year than all the other doctors combined. He also takes time out to explain (to me) what my son is working through in a way I can understand. My son is at ease in his office and we never have to wait more than 5 minutes past appointment time.
This man is extremely rude. If you don't have any "actual" trauma meaning ANY ptsd, or sexual abuse DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN. He is very careless and JUDGMENTAL. I was severely injured at 13, and have had other things happen, and not only was I judged HE SAID he wasn't COMPETENT to care or help me. Called me "hopeless" and said HE CHOOSES WHO HE TREATS. now would someone going for help be "hopeless" I have a college education, I am a young mother just trying to survive. I asked for my 300$ back and he threatened to call the cops! Haha wow. I do NOT need someone judging me and calling me names or threatening me !!! I will make sure everyone knows exactly how this man treats his patients because it is unacceptable!
I have no idea what is with that other review, I have been a patient since I was 8, my life was quite bad but now I am 16 and Dr. Bernal has changed my life he has always helped me, he cares about me, he spends time with me, knows me and understands me, I strongly recommend him. Oh and his staff are very nice people!
