We focus exclusively on the administration of IV Ketamine Infusions in efforts to master the science and art of this unique treatment. We work hand-in-hand with the top experts in their respective fields to provide superior service for any needs that we don’t address in-house. Leading psychologists, psychiatrists, pain specialists, and neurologists are just a few of the types of specialists we regularly work with to ensure long-term relief while closely monitoring our patients’ progress every step of the way.
Education is a key element of your success that many doctors overlook. We believe in educating our patients as we work with them to achieve their best possible physical and mental state. With increased knowledge and a better understanding of yourself, you become an ally in the fight for your good health.
We are very responsive to questions and requests. Emails and phone calls are responded to the same day they’re received, in most cases. We are clear and concise, set reasonable expectations, and are always honest with you about setting reasonable expectations and your results. Dr. Mandel shares his personal cell phone number with patients should they need him after hours. We ask that all non-urgent matters and scheduling requests be directed to the clinic’s main line 310-270-0625. We keep all of our communication with you confidential and safe, exceeding HIPAA standards.
Many of our patients have doctors who they’ve already been working with to resolve the issues they bring to us. We respect these relationships and will work closely with your doctor to fully understand you and your needs. Over the years, we’ve developed a reputation among our patients’ current and former providers of being accessible, collaborative, and adding value to their therapies and treatment programs.
Our commitment to you starts from our very first contact and lasts long after your series of infusions is complete. We believe it’s vital your treatment with us be part of a bigger plan, which is why we have extensive resources and information dedicated to aftercare, including the continued monitoring of your condition long after you complete your series. We support you any way we can by responding to you in a timely manner, following up via phone and email, making referrals for needs outside of our scope of practice, and much more.
- Lifestyle – We offer best practices for an overall healthy lifestyle to all of our patients. We’ll send you a detailed list after you complete your initial series and then regularly check in with you via phone and email to ensure your great results are being maintained.
- Advanced Tracking – We use a state-of-the-art text-messaging service to score your daily mood and/or pain score, making it fast and easy for you to keep us informed so we can support you. Using this same convenient service, we also text a more extensive depression and/or pain assessment for you to complete bi-weekly. Not only do we closely monitor your progress, but you and your other providers can easily login online and view your results. All data is transmitted and stored securely via encrypted, HIPAA compliant servers.
- Maintenance Infusions/Boosters – Most patients benefit from Booster Infusions on an as-needed basis following their series. This usually consists of two infusions done 1-2 days apart and often significantly extends their initial benefit. When and how often patients come back for boosters varies widely and we don’t subscribe to a “one size fits all” policy. On average, patients get two boosters every 3 months. We’ve seen patients who needed them monthly and others who have gone 2+ years before returning.
