What our Patients are Saying

Reno, NV Patient

I found the Reno KWC facility simply by googling. I checked out two other places in Reno that offer ketamine infusions, and KWC was my first choice based on my sense of competence about their techniques and the clear instructions provided by their admin people. I felt very safe the entire time, and the registered …

Denver/Littleton, CO Patient

I have struggled with MDD and PTSD for many years of my life. I’ve been to so many doctor’s appointments and have taken different forms of antidepressants.

Chris B.

I’ve suffered from depression, severe anxiety, and PTSD for over 15 years. Too many prescriptions have come and gone out of my life during this battle; too many to count. With each medication that I would try, and would ultimately fail to help me, I began to feel like my mind was not my own …

S.H.

It’s hard to fully describe how much this place has helped me. I came to the Ketamine Wellness Centers begrudgingly at the request of my family and friends because, after nearly 3 dozen med trials and a few other failed treatment modalities, I was entirely dejected. I wanted to show them this, too, was going …

I had suffered depression for 28 years. Tried many meds, which kept me going, but I always wondered why other people had so much energy and could be social, when I barely made it through the work day. I isolated myself. My depression was so bad, I became homeless. I was unable to work. I …

I cannot say enough about the experience and treatment I received from Ketamine Wellness Center, and my results were genuinely life-changing.

Soon after speaking to …
