Ketamine is one of the most effective treatments for Depression, Anxiety and Neuropathic Pain when traditional treatments have failed.  Drew Belnap, MD has a unique approach to delivering ketamine which has contributed to an 86% success rate with his patients.  With over 10 years of experience administering Ketamine, Dr. Belnap is the only board certified Anesthesiologist offering Ketamine treatments in San Diego County. For over 2 1/2 years, Dr. Belnap has personally administered over 1,500 infusions.  He is in the room with each patient during each infusion monitoring their vitals and response to the Ketamine infusion. Patients relax in a soft power recliner chair watching high definition nature videos which helps the patient remain grounded during the infusions.  Dr. Belnap reassures patients as they experience the infusion that what they are experiencing is normal and to be expected. He does this and more to ensure that each and every infusion is a comfortable experience, unlike other clinics that leave the patient alone in the room with nothing to do but stare at a wall.  Ketamine is a revolutionary anesthetic medication that should only be administered by qualified doctors. As a board certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Belnap has the highest level of training to administer anesthetic medications.  Prior to starting treatment, Dr. Belnap will contact your mental health provider to develop a safe and effective treatment plan.  Click below to discover a patient’s experience with IV Ketamine at our clinic.
