Meet Our Doctor

At Renaissance Behavioral Medicine, we are proud to introduce you to our dedicated team of professionals who are committed to providing exceptional care to our patients.

Dr. Kenneth Etefia, MD


Dr. Kenneth Etefia, MD, is a double-board certified adult and child psychiatrist. He received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University in Operations Research and Financial Engineering before earning a doctorate in medicine from the Icahn (formerly Mount Sinai) School of Medicine in New York. Dr. Etefia completed specialty training in both adult and child psychiatry at Stanford and Lucille Packard Hospitals in Stanford, CA.




"I can't recommend Dr. Etefia enough. An excellent child psychiatrist, who demonstrates not only the highest degree of expertise but also that he really cares. Very far from the psychiatrist that just prescribes medication. His advice and insights have been priceless. And he's always there and highly responsive. He was extremely helpful to my family and we are very grateful. I'll also add that Lanie, his medical assistant, is always kind and highly responsive, and the communication is very easy."

Asaf B.

"Dr. Kenneth Etefia helped our teenager through a very difficult time and gave us the tools to help him get past the crisis and grow in character. In sharp contrast to other psychiatrists, Dr. Etefia had great insight into our son, made efficient use of his and our time, and provided a useful diagnosis and actionable plans."

Chris O.

"Caring, committed, and life-changing. Thank you!"

Jenny W.

"Kenneth saved my life. That's short answer. I came to him for help as the first time admitting I have a big problem I could not deal with. Losing everything. Three years later I finally got it. 5 months sober and life gives me gifts I not supposed to get. Thank you doctor! Everything you said was right, I tried to find my own way, through denial and anger, and finally acceptance - I am making it! Highly recommend to all struggling with chemical or emotional problems. Five stars! Forever grateful client.
Oh yeah, very responsible, gentle, non-judgement style, calm and reserved. You will feel like improving your own well being. There is no way around. Do the first step. Give him a call."

Eugene V.

"Dr Etefia probably has a better understanding of me than what I do of myself. He patiently listens and triggers the right neurons by asking questions."

Sina F.

"I would give this office 6 stars if I could! Dr Etefia was wonderful with my son and myself. Knowledgeable, intuitive and kind, and a excellent communicator. And Lanie is the best assistant ever! Super nice and super efficient at the same time. I consider myself very fortunate to have found Dr Eteffia, he has changed my family for the better."

Francesca C.

"Dr. Etefia and I currently share care of several complex patients and I rely on his vast experience, expertise, and knowledge of cutting edge and evidence based practices delivered with warmth and compassion. I frequently recommend him with confidence."
