Clinical Psychiatry/ Telepsychiatry/Applied Neuroscience™
Through Applied Neuroscience™, Dr. Arredondo provides both direct service and telepsychiatry services. Based in the San Francisco, San Jose, and Silicon Valley area, Dr. Arredondo provides direct face-to-face treatment services, evaluations, consultations, and second (or third) opinions to those seeking expert clinical advice, medications, or psychotherapy for issues that cross clinical disciplines. He is formerly the medical director and director of clinical training of EMQ Children and Family Services—the largest non-profit in California, which serves children and families with mental health, educational, and other special needs. In this role, Dr. Arredondo supervised child psychiatry fellows (Stanford Med), law students (Stanford Law), psychologists (University of California San Francisco), social workers (San Jose State University), and MFCC (Marriage, Family and Child Counseler) candidates.
He thus brings a wide breadth of perspective to issues of children’s emotional, academic, and social development. He is the founding director of the Office of Child Development, an affiliate of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, and Applied Neuroscience™—a cutting-edge small firm that applies recent advances in neuroscience to real-world problems, success, and growth.
Dr. Arredondo also conducts research reviews and clinical trials on a broad range of topics and provides evaluations, consultations, and training to families, professionals, and programs across the country. You can visit the Precision for Medicine website to learn more about the process of these trials. He is the author of numerous articles and book chapters and a frequent speaker at national conferences. Dr. Arredondo is a graduate of Harvard University and Harvard Medical School.
He is most often described as warm, funny, empathic, insightful, and caring. You can see him on video on YouTube or on his Video Blog on this site and decide for yourself if you think you might enjoy him in one-on-one interaction for assessment and perhaps further treatment. His services are almost always covered (at least, in part) by standard medical insurance policies.
