I use an integrative approach that emphasizes a combination of psychotherapy and medication as needed for each individual. I am also experienced with medications for treatment of substance abuse such as Suboxone (buprenorphine and naloxone) and Revia (naltrexone).

I completed my undergraduate degree at Harvard University, medical school at Columbia University, and psychiatric residency at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). I completed a fellowship in Addiction Psychiatry at UCSF.

Reviews for 

Pernilla Schweitzer, MD

Dr. Schweitzer has been incredibly helpful, and her approach is superior to previous experiences I have had with psychiatric treatment in the past. She is interested in hearing about feelings, backstory, experiences and conflicts that impact psychiatric well being, and that is rare in a psychiatrist.

She has been a great listener and is pragmatic about helping me.

Dr. Schweitzer is compassionate and attentive. She is a psychiatrist, but not just focused on medication (although she is sure to check in on that, too). She listens to other things that are going on in your life, and offers options across the spectrum, including therapy as well as medication. It feels like she cares holistically about me not just as a patient but as a human being.

Dr. Schweitzer is kind and very thoughtful. She recalls what I have told her and relates to my experiences. I appreciate her honesty and the way that she holds very safe and open space. She is very perceptive and drives towards a deeper understanding that I can use to forward my life.

Dr. Schweitzer is an amazing, calming presence. She listens patiently and takes your concerns seriously. I would be in a bad place if it wasnt for her.
