Raul J. Rodriguez, MD specializes in helping people conquer a variety of serious mental health conditions, including treatment resistant depression & anxiety, mood disorders, eating disorders, and addiction. From early in his career, it became apparent to Dr. Rodriguez that there were failings in conventional psychiatric treatment that left many without any hope of improvement or recovery. His response was to develop an innovative approach to the treatment of mental health disorders that focused on treating the person in their entirety. The program that Dr. Rodriguez developed heavily emphasizes personal attention at a level not normally found in other inpatient or outpatient programs. The great success that Dr. Rodriguez’s unique approach to mental health has had over the years has allowed Dr. Rodriguez to continue to add new programs and facilities to better serve his patients.
Dr. Rodriguez has focused his career on bettering the psychiatry and psychology field, by always questioning if there is a better way to treat patients. Dr. Rodriguez began his career in earnest as Chief Resident at University of Miami-Jackson Memorial Hospital. With degrees in both medicine and chemistry, Dr. Rodriguez fully understands the complex interaction between psychotropic medications and the delicate biochemical balance of the human body. Dr. Rodriguez is also a firm believer in incorporating effective, alternative treatments in combination with standard psychiatry and psychopharmacology. Individualized treatment plans developed by Dr. Rodriguez often include deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (deep TMS or dTMS) therapy, ketamine infusion therapy, yoga, acupuncture, and physical fitness.
The comprehensive treatment plans available with Dr Rodriguez reflect his central belief that effective treatment must be holistic and well-rounded, treating mind, body, and spirit. The commitment to comprehensive wellness is fundamental in Dr. Rodriguez’s approach to helping every client. As a Diplomate on both the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology and the American Board of Addiction Medicine, Dr Rodriguez remains on the forefront of advanced psychopharmacology, always utilizing new medications in order to treat conditions like depression and substance use disorder on an outpatient basis.
Dr. Rodriguez’s dedication to quality care, unique approach to recovery, and reputation extends to the medical and clinical team of psychotherapists, doctors, and nurses he has assembled to provide a full spectrum of outpatient care for virtually every psychiatric and mental health problem there is.
