Psychiatric Evaluation & Medication Management
Recognizing that a child/adolescent has a problem with emotions or behavior can be difficult and painful. Working with our child/adolescent psychiatrist offers families the opportunity for a diagnostic examination in order to evaluate the current needs. Drawing upon years of training and experience, EPIC’s psychiatrist will determine the factors that play a role in the young person’s difficulties. They will then suggest things that can be helpful including ideas about how to approach issues differently, talk or play therapy, extra help at school, further evaluations, close attention to diet and sometimes, prescription medication or over-the-counter treatments.
EPIC’s child/adolescent psychiatric services are provided by Dr. Renato Romero. Dr. Romero is certified in the state of Florida in Psychiatry and has extensive experience working with children and adolescents.
