About Me

Welcome. My name is Andrew Mitton, and I am a double-board certified psychiatrist in both general adult and addiction psychiatry. I am grateful to have the opportunity to introduce myself and share some of my experiences and training background.


I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and attended college and medical school on the East Coast. I completed my residency training here in Los Angeles and am happy to be back on the West Coast and am grateful to be living in sunny Southern California!

About my practice

I am proud to be a part of the team of excellent doctors and therapists here at the Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center. I practice general adult psychiatry and specialize in the treatment of mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and psychosis, but treat all types of adult mental health. I also have a special interest in addiction-related issues from my additional fellowship training.

How I thrive

I firmly believe in the mind-body connection. I try to live a balanced life, and make a point of getting outside as much as possible. I enjoy hiking, being out on the ocean and gardening.
