Usually, six initial treatment are recommenced over a period of 3-4 weeks. This may result in complete resolution of symptoms which is called remission. Some patients with severe or chronic depressive symptoms may require additional treatments.
Some patients benefit from ongoing maintenance treatment after initial six treatments; frequency is established on a case by case basis.

1 Review on “Board Certified Psychiatrist Offering Ketamine Therapy Since 2012”
I felt like I was losing the battle with my depression. I have been on multiple antidepressants, none of which seem to work. I was this apathetic person with an attitude of unresponsiveness, and detachment, which impaired my ability to focus at work, have close relationships and participate in social outings – I was really in a dark place before I met Dr G. I did some research on Ketamine treatments and came across Dr. G’s website. He was one of the MOST AFFORDABLE doctors that provided this treatment, so I made an appointment that changed my life for the better. Dr. G is knowledgeable, caring, and attentive and he made sure I was comfortable and have a therapeutic and safe experience. I had six infusions and I honestly believe that this treatment brought me back to life. I felt I had more purpose and I was motivated. I felt like a new person – I was finally living for the first time in years. I am a testament that it can work.
