About Dr. Kenneth Sokolski

I am an established psychiatrist practicing in Orange County and would like to invite you to learn about my psychiatric practice and my philosophy in treating psychiatric patients. I am a graduate of U.C. Irvine School of medicine in Orange County where I first became interested in pyshchiatry through my involvement in studies of brain metabolsim in psychiatric patients. I am a member of Alpha Omega Alpha National Medical Honor Society through which I have been awarded honors for excellence in the clinical practice of psychiatry. I completed my residency in Psychiatry and Human Behavior at U.C. Irvine in 1991 where I received awards for research in psychiatry and clinical care. Not many people know that I also completed a Masters degree in marine biology at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. In addition, I am also a former Marshall and Thomas J. Watson Scholar. Since psychiatric residency, I have been a practicing psychiatrist, evaluating and treating patients privately in Irvine while serving on the Faculty of Psychiatry of the university. As a psychiatric faculty member, I have instructed medical students and residents in psychiatric practice, become involved in psychiatric research, and treated psychiatric patients at the Veterans Hospital in Long Beach as well as at U.C. Irvine.

It was a miraculous visit to share with your treating psychiatrist after a 3+ year absence. A client may not fullyappreciate his doctor until a period of absence to know his effective treatment made a difference in his client's life, family's life, and the SMART Community. Hopefully, the stigma with effective mental health treatment is not going to hinder our diverse, sustainable, and evolving community.

Great first visit. Dr. Sokolski listened and understood my problems and gently explained why and how I might be experiencingthem and how certain treatments including medical and non-medical would work together to help alleviate them.

He was fantastic. Really listened to my concerns, did not make me feel rushed, took a thorough history, asked a lot of questions and then made educated decisions regarding what medication(s) to prescribe and explained WHY he was prescribin them. He accepted my insurance (Anthem Blue Cross PPO) so all I owed was my co-pay. On the way out he handed me his card with my next appointment date written on it and said to call anytime if I had questions come up between now and the next appointment. Extremely satisfied and already feel better about all my issues/concerns because it feels as though at least I've started to do something about it. Highly recommended!
