Dr. Aronson-Ramos has been serving Children and Families in South Florida since 1993

WELCOME

Judith Aronson-Ramos, M.D., is a Board Certified Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrician. Her medical practice is devoted exclusively to the evaluation and treatment of pediatric patients (birth – 18 yrs) with challenges in learning, behavior, development, and social-emotional functioning. Dr. Aronson-Ramos has been in practice for over 30 years and she is acutely aware of the need for individualized and comprehensive care for children and families provided in a supportive and compassionate setting.

During your consultation if a definitive diagnosis is not evident, Dr Aronson-Ramos will focus on addressing the specific areas of need. Treatment supersedes finding the perfect diagnostic “fit”. If an individual has recently completed a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation, she will focus on maintaining effective treatment, follow up care, and when indicated, re-evaluation. You will be provided specific recommendations and resources at each visit.  The goal is for families and the patient, to be empowered from the moment they leave the office.

If medication is indicated, it will be prescribed as part of a comprehensive plan. We emphasize comprehensive as medications alone are rarely effective in leading to a successful outcome. In an effort to provide the best possible results with medication we also perform pharmacogenetic testing (PGT) when indicated. This is a simple test using a saliva sample performed in the office to help determine the optimal medications for each patient. PGT analyzes your DNA to provide information to guide treatment so we can more quickly determine the best medication options for each patient limiting side effects and a trial and error approach. We also discuss nutrition, supplements, and treatment alternatives other than medication on an individual basis.  Please read, The Five Most Frequently Asked Questions, by Dr. Aronson Ramos which summarizes her responses to some of the most common questions we address everyday.

Other unique programs and assessments in our office include: NEBA testing and  Cogmed Working Memory Training. NEBA is a diagnostic assessment to bring more precision to the diagnosis of ADHD. It is a brief EEG test performed in our office. Cogmed is an intensive computer based brain training program completed at home for ages 4-adult. Cogmed has been a successful intervention for children and teens in our practice with: ADHD, Learning Disorders, ASD, and other processing problems. For more information about NEBA and COGMED see the SERVICES tab on this website.
