Offering “concierge psychiatry,” the Kai MacDonald Ketamine Clinic in San Diego, California provides intimate psychiatric and ketamine therapy treatments.
As a clinic separated from the insurance-based model, Dr. MacDonald’s practice allows for more time with each patient, which builds a personal relationship between client and doctor.
Although ketamine plays a large role in many patients’ treatments, the Kai MacDonald Ketamine Clinic also focuses on “whole-person treatment,” including such aspects as lifestyle and diet. It is Dr. MacDonald’s belief that, by treating patients from this holistic perspective, each patient will receive an individualized treatment plan that takes into account all aspects of a patient’s health, rather than simply focusing on the difficult to manage mental health aspects.
Dr. Kai MacDonald first became aware of the remarkable potential for ketamine use in psychiatry when he “supervised IV administration of ketamine to a person with severe depression” in 2013. Although he has been aware of the utility of ketamine in treating resistant conditions, Dr. MacDonald chose to wait for further research and protocols to be developed before he offered the treatment to his clients.
Individuals whose struggles with depression have not been alleviated by mainstream medications will find that ketamine infusion therapy at the Kai MacDonald Ketamine Clinic offers an potential route to healing and hope.
Once ketamine has been determined to be a suitable medication for your condition, the initial treatment takes place at Dr. MacDonald’s clinic.
Throughout the process, patients are monitored, as some people report dissociative sensations, such as floating, during treatment. Such side effects are completely normal, and fade soon after the treatment ends.
Treatments at the Kai MacDonald Ketamine Clinic are for individuals who are struggling with the symptoms of difficult to manage mental health conditions. While many people respond well to mainstream oral medications, a significant portion of sufferers do not.
In laboratory settings, ketamine has shown a 70-75 percent effectiveness in treating these difficult conditions. For those who are seeking further assistance in managing their health, the Kai MacDonald Ketamine Clinic stands ready to help.
