Treatment resistant anxiety/depression is real. For over 30 years, I struggled with severe anxiety and depression. Life was a constant battle. But, now that I discovered Ketamine infusion therapy, life has a whole new meaning… From the initial infusion, I finally felt relief! I am thankful for Dr. Olver and Mind Peace clinics for giving me my life back.
I was highly skeptical that ketamine would help me. After all, I had completed years of therapy and was on multiple antidepressants. This just seemed too good to be true. However, I read a few different studies and the science does exist, ever if we can’t explain it all yet… I have now completed 6 scheduled session and one maintenance (“booster”) dose after a month, and cannot recommend it enough.
Dr. Oliver and the entire Mind Peace staff were nothing but professional and courteous throughout the entire process. Dr. Oliver took the time to sit down and explain the procedure from beginning to end, and answered my many questions throughout. I never felt as though my questions, or the time spent with me by Dr. Oliver was rushed, or a burden in any way. The staff was a pleasure to work with, and I would recommend them to anyone. Top notch healthcare services!
When you’re choosing a clinic for such an important procedure, I would strongly advise MindPeace clinic. As a patient of several ketamine clinics which either closed or merged, MindPeace clinic is by far the most professional service available. Dr Oliver is an emergency room physician so you know you are in the best hands possible and his nursing staff is exceptional. You are thoroughly monitored throughout the process and the nurses is in the room with out at all times. Beware because other clinics do not necessarily have these high standards
I’ve suffered from migraines ever since I was 2 years old (as many as 2-3 a week.) I had seen specialist after specialist and tried every treatment in the book. Nothing made even the slightest difference. Since my first treatment session with Dr Oliver, I have not had a single migraine in over 7 months. It has been nothing short of life changing. I can’t recommend Dr. Oliver highly enough. My only regret is not having seen him sooner.
Doctor Oliver is the most compassionate person I’ve ever met. I fell to pieces telling my story and how my life has been affected. He would stop and correct me when I believed I was responsible for my major depression. My ketamine infusion started turning my life around immediately. It was unbelievable. I’ve been on every medication you can name and through ECT as well. No one but Doctor Oliver, his fantastic assistant Sarah and the treatment of course has ever brought me back to who I was before I ever became depressed. My friends and family are overjoyed having the real me back and for myself it’s truly a miracle. I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have. If you’re at the end of your rope as I was, don’t give up until you go to Mind Peace.
After 40 years of unsuccessfully trying multiple depression medications that didn’t work – for the first time in decades, I feel like myself again, alive with a new lightness. I feel both mentally and physically lighter! Ketamine infusions have lifted my lifelong, difficult to treat chronic depression. My ONLY regret is I that I’ve lost half my life to depression. I wish Ketamine infusion treatments were available 40 years ago.
Dr. Oliver and the nurses were very caring and supportive through the whole process. Made me feel very comfortable with what was going to happen, and so far, the results have been really good!
You know you are ready to move forward with Ketamine, when the pain of staying where you are, outweighs the fear of trying it. It didn’t just give me my life back, I feel like a metamorphosis took place. I’m NEW and IMPROVED. I am out of the “cocoon” of depression, having emerged with “wings”. Thank you Dr.Oliver.
Finding MindPeace Clinic was truly a life changing event.
Dr. Oliver and his staff are wonderful- they are concerned, they are kind. Dr. Oliver utilizes mood monitoring software and works closely with your Mental/Behavioral health team in a palpable effort to get the most success out of your treatment as realistically possible. He truly believes in the science, research and results this therapy has shown and can show. He’s up front with you, he makes sure you are informed. His shared office space is quiet, relaxing, and there is a nurse present during the entire treatment, monitoring your blood pressure and heart rate. I highly recommend his practice to anyone suffering from a refractory condition that traditional meds aren’t helping.
The team at Mindpeace Clinics provided me with a full series of treatments and boosters in a safe, supportive environment, adjusting my dose as necessary and responding effectively to side effects. Sharon and Sarah also helped me complete my insurance paper work and get that successfully submitted as this treatment was related to an accident that was not my fault. The ketamine experience was transformative for headaches and PTSD/Depression related to the accident and I would highly recommend if you are considering it for either.
