I’m pleased to announce that we are now offering a revolutionary new treatment for severe depression, anxiety, PTSD, and OCD called Ketamine Therapy. This new therapy is dramatically improving the lives of people suffering from treatment-resistant illnesses. In many cases, the relief is very fast and often long-lasting.
Several scientific studies, including those conducted at Yale University and the National Institute of Mental Health, have shown that even a low dose of IV administered ketamine can dramatically improve symptoms associated with depression. Symptoms that have seen improvement, often within hours, include moodiness, decreased concentration, low self-esteem, impaired sleep, decreased sexual desire, impaired appetite, and overeating.
“Recent data suggest that ketamine, given intravenously, might be the most
important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades.”
Director, National Institute of Mental Health
I’ve partnered with Neuragain, a pioneer in Ketamine Therapy, to offer this state-of-the art and revolutionary new treatment.
What Is Ketamine Therapy?
Ketamine was originally developed as an anesthetic in the 1970s and has also been known to be abused as illicit club drug. However, when used in low-dose intravenous treatments, Ketamine has been shown in numerous studies to produce “robust and rapid antidepressant effects” within a couple of hours.
How Is It Administered?
Ketamine therapy is a safe, reliable, and incredibly effective treatment. We will administer the therapy using state-of the-art technology and monitor and evaluate patient responses and progress carefully. We administer the ketamine infusion therapy, which consists of six 45 minute IV infusions, in a comfortable private treatment room in our office. We will provide treatment tailored to the individual needs of each patient.
Who Can Benefit?
Any patient between the ages of 15 and 80 years who is suffering from treatment-resistant mood and anxiety disorders is a candidate and should contact us for more information.
Ketamine therapy can result in positive treatment outcomes for the following disorders:
• Severe or Chronic Depression
• Bipolar Disorder

• Post-Partum Depression
