How to Choose Your Ketamine Provider

How to Choose Your Ketamine Provider

If you have been considering Ketamine infusion therapy for depression, PTSD, OCD, anxiety, or chronic pain you may have seen many differences in facilities, protocols and providers.  Most Ketamine clinics are run by anesthesiologists or psychiatrists.  Rarely are both practices (mental health and anesthesiology) combined.

Anesthesiologists are very familiar with the drug and have used it for over 40 years.  Many believe they are best suited for the treatment as they have the most experience with Ketamine.  Psychiatrists, on the other hand, believe they are best suited because of the experience in treating individuals with depression and anxiety difficulties.

This is not a “turf war” however, in that most practitioners believe that a partnership between the doctors who are familiar with the drug and the doctors who are familiar with the issues being treated is in the best interest of the patient.  The reality, however, is clinics run by a psychiatrist generally have infusions run and monitored by nurses, and anesthesiologists often require referral and diagnosis from a psychiatrist or other mental health professional.

At Ketamine Wellness Centers, we have seen changes in the field.  Our medical director, anesthesiologist Mark Murphy, MD, and I have observed an increasing acceptance of this breakthrough treatment.  Mental health professionals, including psychiatrists, are better understanding the value of Ketamine, and seeking help on behalf of their patients.

People who receive help and support from both mental health professionals AND anesthesiologists overseeing the infusion tend to receive the most benefit.  Everyone recognizes the value of team work.  Collaboration between mental health and anesthesiology creates the most successful Ketamine treatment.

At Ketamine Wellness Centers, our team has both anesthesiologists and mental health professionals.  We offer private treatment rooms with personalized, individual monitoring along with a tailored wellness plan.  We are the comprehensive program you need to give yourself the best chance of success.  Call us and learn how our team can become your team.  Call Ketamine Wellness Centers today.
