Rafael Ramos, Psychiatric Physician Assistant
Rafael was born and raised in the Greater Los Angeles area. He completed his undergraduate studies here at UC San Diego and later obtained his Master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies from DeSales University in Pennsylvania. Rafael cultivated his experience in the fields of primary care and mental health while working with the inner city communities of Los Angeles County.
Since returning to San Diego, Rafael has focused on providing quality psychiatric care to those who suffer from a variety of mental health ailments including addiction, eating disorders and trauma. Rafael believes that the best results can be achieved by having a cooperative relationship between the patient and the provider, integrating medication based and therapy based treatment, as well as including novel treatments such as TMS and intravenous ketamine when appropriate.
