Dr. Ricardo J Fermo has the following 3 specialties
- 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.
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.

Worth the wait
Self-verified patient of Dr. Ricardo J Fermo - Posted on February 2nd, 2016
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.
