Dr. Rozon is a Board-Eligible Adult Psychiatrist who is focused on working with patients suffering from mood disorders (depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and anxiety-related disorders) as well as trauma-related disorders.
After starting medical school, though initially aiming towards pediatrics, he quickly found himself drawn to psychiatry. He was astounded by the impact psychiatric illness could have on both individuals and their wider communities. He was similarly amazed by the effect treatment could have in changing patients’ lives. As a Latino familiar with the stigma often attached to mental health in Latinx cultures, he also gravitated to the work of normalizing conversations about mental health in communities of color.
Dr. Rozon has a friendly and laidback approach to working with patients. He strives to establish a collaborative relationship with his patients built on mutual trust, respect, and often laughter. He wants his patients to feel comfortable and well informed to make decisions about their care while working with him. His goal is always to create treatment plans built on the latest evidence and patients’ values.
He is excited to incorporate both esketamine nasal spray and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) into his practice. He has seen firsthand the impact interventional techniques can have on patients and believes these treatments are modern tools in the fight against treatment-resistant depression that will continue to gain wider use in the future.
He joins Mindful Health Solutions in the Fall of 2021.
While a native New Yorker, Dr. Rozon has now lived in California for many years. He recently moved from the Bay Area to Southern California and is excited to explore everything Los Angeles has to offer and improve his surfing skills as well. Outside of the office, he likes to watch movies, everything from the latest blockbusters to older foreign language films. He also experiments in the kitchen with new recipes whenever he can.
