Eric Wexler, MD, PhD, Psychiatrist in Santa Monica
I am a board certified psychiatrist and scientist with over 10 years experience in the practice of evidence-based medicine. While I specialize in treating patients experiencing disturbed moods and poor impulse control (e.g. Bipolar disorder and ADHD), I treat nearly the full spectrum of psychiatric conditions. With expertise in psychiatry and neurobiology I provide patients with an individualized approach that combines the most effective tools including cognitive-behavioral therapy and state-of-the-art psychopharmacology.
In addition to my general psychiatry practice, I have published on a broad range of neuropsychiatry-related topics, including early-onset dementia, autism, neuropharmacology and neurogenetics. This experience has given me unique insights into managing treatment resistant patients, particularly in those individuals with neurologic or medical illnesses.
