Dr. Amir E Ettekal

Psychiatrist , MD

(310) 341-2905
*Offices in Hermosa Beach & Santa Monica.* I am a psychiatrist specialized in understanding both the biological and psychological factors of human emotions. I take the time to understand what my patients need and through a collaborative approach, we create a personalized treatment plan based on your unique needs. Through my work in clinical trials, I stay on the forefront of medication innovation and safety, giving me first-hand experience in the most effective, and safe treatments. Through my training in psychotherapy I continue to address the emotional and psychological aspects of that person.
Most psychiatrists only prescribe medications; my advanced medical training, coupled with my training in ISTDP psychotherapy, help me to understand people on multiple levels. Ultimately, this allows me to provide unique and quality care as well as the flexibility and knowledge to address multiple varying issues.
My greatest reward is when patients comment that their experience working with me has helped them more than they could have expected. I believe that beyond my experience, and extensive training in the field, I am able to help by offering kind and compassionate service.
