Founded in 2017, MindPeace Clinics is the culmination of decades of Dr. Patrick Oliver’s experience in Emergency Medicine and his continued frustration seeing suicide and the suffering of those with mental health and mood disorders. Through his research, he discovered the success that patients were having by utilizing ketamine therapy. He sought to help.
Convinced this could be the breakthrough people needed, he opened a clinic for patients suffering from Treatment-Resistant Mood Disorders. MindPeace Clinics’ first location was in Arlington, Virginia. Following this success, he expanded the practice to serve those in Richmond, Virginia, in 2018 and Norfolk, Virginia, in 2020. Since 2017, MindPeace has treated over a thousand patients, completed over 10,000 infusions, and never lost focus on its fundamental values: service to patients, health and safety of all, and providing a platinum standard of care for others.
From the beginning, MindPeace Clinics has positioned itself as the benchmark in treatment for our patients. MindPeace is a medical clinic that uses current, topical research to guide treatment. Furthermore, MindPeace Clinics has added to this research by publishing the results compiled and collected during the initial years that the clinic doors were open.
MindPeace Clinics believes in a physician-led treatment team to ensure the highest quality care for clients. All physicians are board-certified in Emergency Medicine or Anesthesiology. Registered nurses with either Emergency Medicine or Intensive Care experience complement the physicians. This team, coupled with modern medical technology, creates an environment of trust and understanding to best serve the patient.
Recognizing the difficult journey many patients have gone through before coming to us, MindPeace Clinics strives to exceed expectations. From the first contact to the end of treatment, our goal is to treat our patients with compassion, honesty, and professionalism. Our clinics are designed to provide a relaxing and calming environment. MindPeace Clinics believes our obligation to our patients is our top priority.
How We Can Help
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Chronic Pain Syndromes
MindPeace Clinics specializes in treating mood disorders (depression, suicidal ideations, anxiety, and PTSD), chronic headaches, migraines, and chronic pain syndromes with ketamine therapy. From its inception, MindPeace Clinics has measured our success one patient at a time. Since 2017, MindPeace Clinics has treated over 1,000 patients and administered over 10,000 infusions. We use a series of clinically validated surveys to assess a patient’s progress as they move through the treatment. As we have grown, we have collected one of the most clinically significant data sets available about the effectiveness of Intravenous Racemic Ketamine Infusions. In the November/December 2022 edition of The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, a group of researchers independently reviewed and published the results from the data provided by MindPeace Clinics.
The study concluded that MindPeace treatments effectively reduced symptoms of suicidal ideations and gestures, treatment-resistant depression, and generalized anxiety. The overall results of this study showed 72% of patients responded (50% or more resolution of symptoms) and 38% were in remission for depression after ten infusions. Eighty five percent of patients experienced complete resolution of suicidal ideations after 15 infusions. The success of this study was noticed and picked up by multiple news outlets, including The Washington Post, CNN, WebMD, and the Daily Mail.
The Washington Post covered a more intimate perspective, highlighting several of our patients. These stories are representative of many of the struggles and successes that our patients experience through the treatment process. We invite you to review these publications to learn more about Ketamine Infusion Therapy and MindPeace Clinics. MindPeace is proud of our success and looks forward to continuing to help each of our patients.
We understand that for many, the subject of mental health is still difficult to discuss. Some of our patients have taken the time to share their experiences with MindPeace Clinics. We are grateful for all of their kind words and feedback so that we can continue to put our patients first.
Patients have shared their testimonials from our Central Virginia Clinic, serving Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, and our Hampton Roads Clinic serving Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Newport News, and Norfolk, and our Northern Virginia Clinic serving Arlington, Alexandria, and Washington D.C.
