Bonnett, MD founded Klarisana in 2015 out of frustration with the suicide rate among U.S. veterans. He also wanted to help veterans suffering from PTSD, depression, and chronic pain.

Patients 18 years and older do not require a referral. Prospective patients will have a discussion with the Patient Care Coordinator. If you’re seeking treatment for a mental health condition, you’ll then be scheduled for a psychological screening by one of Klarisana’s Licensed Professional Counselors or Licensed Clinical Social Workers. Subsequently, patients will have an intake session either by phone or in-clinic with one of Klarisana’s Advanced Practice Providers.
At Klarisana, each patient receives their intramuscular ketamine treatment in a private room with live stream video observation by Klarisana staff, typically a nurse practitioner or physician assistant. Each patient’s vitals are monitored at regular intervals, too. Most ketamine sessions last about one hour.
