Ketamine is one of the most effective treatments for Depression, Anxiety and Neuropathic Pain when traditional treatments have failed.  Drew Belnap, MD has developed a unique treatment method to deliver ketamine in such a way that has now contributed to over a 90% success rate with his current patients.  For over 5 years Dr. Belnap has personally administered thousands of infusions to hundreds of patients. Other ketamine providers merely supervise their patient’s care and they rarely interact with them. Whereas, Dr. Belnap is in the room the entire 2 hour appointment with each patient spending at least 15 hours with each patient during the first 6 treatments. At the first appointment, Dr. Belnap spends 1 hour explaining to the patient and their loved ones what ketamine is, what it does, what it doesn’t do and how to make it work for each patient given their unique circumstances. Dr. Belnap encourages the attendance of as many loved ones as possible during the initial counseling so they can help support the patient in the way that his patients really appreciate.   During each infusion, Dr. Belnap is monitoring patient’s vitals and making sure they are comfortable with their ketamine experience. Patients relax in a soft power recliner chair and watch HD drone nature videos which help each patient remain grounded and comfortable during the infusions.  Dr. Belnap is present to answer any questions and help reassure each patient that what they are experiencing is normal. At other clinics, the patients are left alone in the room unsure if what they are experiencing is normal and they have very little to keep them grounded.    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.  Click below to discover a patient’s experience with IV Ketamine at our clinic.
