The Consultation Process
To assess whether Ketamine is the right choice for you, we first evaluate all information every patient sends to us using forms and questionaries provided on our website.
We conduct an initial mental health screening using TeleHealth (Zoom, phone conversation) or in-house interview with various questionnaires and a comprehensive assessment. An anesthesiologist will also perform a general medical assessment and pertinent physical exam on the day of the treatment, to make sure there are no contraindications to receiving Ketamine treatment.
After a general medical assessment by an anesthesiologist, some laboratory tests may be ordered:
- Comprehensive metabolic panel of your blood on the first day of infusion treatment. If you have a copy of the most recent test (in the last 6 months), please give us a copy of it.
- Urine drug screen test on the first day of treatment to rule out those who are actively abusing substances.
All tests will be done in our clinic and usually covered by insurance.
