In 2019 Dr. Amy van Elkan founded the first ketamine clinic in Mountain Brook, Alabama. Crestline Health and Wellness was developed to help people who are suffering from severe mood disorders and neuropathic pain. At the time, there was no option in the Birmingham area to pursue ketamine infusion therapies in a focused clinical setting. Since 2001, Dr. Amy has cared for thousands of patients, many of them for over a decade, creating personalized relationships which isn’t always the case in her specialty. Her patients tell her she’s compassionate and an expert at getting those difficult IVs working. The practice is extremely proud to provide patients personalized therapy allowing them to recover from severe depression, get back to work, resolve their crippling post-traumatic stress disorder, keep pain at bay, and overall, see some light in the darkness.
