IV Ketamine therapy is a revolutionary therapeutic approach to treating depression and anxiety disorders. Our office was the first in the area to offer Ketamine for mental health because we saw the unmet need for an effective, safe, rapid-acting antidepressant.  It is no longer acceptable to wait a month or more for symptom relief. 

60-70 % of patients with treatment resistant Depression respond to Ketamine.  Patients with other depressive disorders such as Post-Partum Depression, can also find relief.  A single dose of Ketamine can reduce suicidal thoughts.

While the focus on Ketamine has been its positive impact on depression, it can also quickly work on other mental disorders such as: 

  • Bipolar Disorder

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Many Anxiety Disorders


For almost 20 years, researchers have demonstrated that tiny doses of Ketamine can rapidly relieve depression symptoms when delivered via slow intravenous infusion. The first scholarly paper describing this discovery was published by Yale in 2000 and now other major institutions such as the National Institutes of Health, Mount Sinai Medical School, Oxford University, and Johns Hopkins have similar findings.

All new patients have a series of six infusions spaced over two or three weeks. Each infusion is 40 minutes long.  It is painless and well-tolerated.

Ketamine therapy impacts both mood and anxiety disorders with positive treatment outcomes for the following diagnoses:

  • Depression, Chronic Depression, and Treatment Resistant Depression

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Bipolar Disorder

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Post Partum Depression

  • Many Anxiety Disorders


It has been a game changer for many sufferers.  Come find out if it can change your life.

I get up early, don’t sleep 10 hours. Enjoy even mundane things, happy to hear from family and friends.

My life has definitely changed for the better. My depression is so much better, I am able to function and enjoy the things I used to.

Internet research said Ketamine would cause a person to pursue ‘pleasure-seeking activities.’ I didn’t know what that might mean; would I suddenly start doing things that hadn’t appealed to me before, like gambling? No, I got more satisfaction; felt more productive from the tasks I pursued, and I did more of them.”

I am less concerned about the opinions of others (meaning those who seem against me) and more interested in making a genuine connection, even for a brief encounter. Before I was afraid of every human contact, looked down a lot, because all human contact has such great potential to hurt me. People hurt me. The people are still there, but it doesn’t hurt. I am less fragile and more friendly and interested in other people.
