Do not go to him!

My son sees him and not once has he met our appointment time. Being in a waiting room for more than an hour with a toddler is unacceptable! I am finding another doctor.

Worth the wait

Dr Fermo is worth the wait. He took both of my kids within a week. The reviews all say that you have to wait... that is true... but it's worth the wait. He spent the time with my teenage son and is gaining his trust with each appointment. My son was severely depressed and had qu it talking to me, whom he has always been open and honest with. My 8 year old daughter is a firecracker and we had been informed that she may be diagnosed with bipolar eventually. Dr Fermo did not think that will be the case and is optomistic about her treatment of ADHD and has actually suggested that she is gifted/talented iq range. He is laid back and connects with the kids by finding their interest and uses the conversations to aid in his evaluations. My kids are now happier and healthier than they have been in some time. In my opinion the office staff and wait time is nothing when considering the mental health of your children. We are even a one income family that has okay insurance.... but I would sell my kidney and bone marrow if necessary for my kids to continue treatment by Dr Fermo.
