Dr. Andrew Morrow (Psychiatrist)
I was born and raised in Orange County, California. In 1996, I relocated with my family to St. Louis, Missouri, where I completed my undergraduate education at St. Louis University with a B.S. in Chemistry graduating summa cum laude. I then went on to medical school at St. Louis University School of Medicine.
After obtaining my MD, I decided it was time to come home to Orange County, and completed my residency training and served as chief resident at University of California, Irvine Medical Center. There, I gained extensive training in general adult psychiatry including pharmacological therapy, psychotherapy, child adolescent, geriatric, consult-liaison, and forensic subspecialties. I have experience providing care in nursing homes, long term care settings, detox centers, and county facilities.
Why did I choose psychiatry as a specialty? Human behavior has always fascinated me. Every person is unique in their experiences, their upbringing, their relationships, and personality, and this is far more interesting to me than the routine of a primary care physician’s practice. As a psychiatrist, I am in a special position to be able to integrate psychological, and social characteristics with biological therapy to treat the whole person; mind, body, and soul, and it is with great humility that I pursue this goal.
