Dr. Vasconcellos has been treating my ADHD for around 4 years. She has always been available when needed and has a personal email for direct communication. 10/10 would recommend to others.

in Hollywood, FL |
The people who work with this doctor never provided the correct info for any appointment and if you call them to asked a question never answer the phone and if they do they answer that they will call back and never do it, Have to take my child to a different neurologist after I got tired with the service they provided

She is caring and takes time with each patient and the parents to explain diagnosis and prescriptions. My son has improved lots under her care and we feel very comfortable with her counsel and advice. She speaks Spanish, English and Portuguese therefore parents with limited English proficiency can speak freely with her and the staff. She is a great doctor, up to date on new treatments and alternatives for ADHD patients. Highly Recommended! Worth waiting the time for the appointment.
