At Klarity Ketamine Wellness Clinic, patients who have tried traditional routes to treat depression can find relief through the use of ketamine infusion therapy. The clinic recognizes that ketamine therapy isn’t a cure, but rather a part of a wider treatment plan. They collaborate with other health care providers to offer a well-rounded course of treatment.
The Medical Director at Klarity Ketamine Wellness Clinic, Dr. Melissa Reed, is a Board-Certified anesthesiologist. She approaches patient care with the same compassion and delicacy as she would her own family. Dr. Reed’s main goal is to provide ongoing relief for those who have lost all hope when it comes to recovery.

Upon contacting Klarity, Dr. Reed will call you to discuss your condition and answer any questions you may have. You will then be asked to fill out a few forms and sign a release, giving Klarity permission to contact your current mental healthcare provider. When the decision is made to proceed with treatment, your first infusions will be scheduled.

Treatment is initiated with 6 infusions given over a 2 week time period—typically following a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule (a different protocol will be set up for chronic pain patients).
During your infusions, you’ll be in a private treatment room. You will be continuously monitored including your blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen saturation. An intravenous (IV) line will be placed and the infusion started. The infusion will be given slowly over 40 minutes. Many patients may find it helpful to listen to music or just sit back and relax. The IV will remain in place until you’re fully recovered (typically 1-2 hours).
Upon completion of the 3rd infusion, an assessment will be performed to ensure you are responding and should continue with the therapy. During this process, and throughout your care with Klarity, Dr. Reed will update and consult with your primary mental healthcare provider and you will continue to follow their guidance.
For most patients, follow-up infusions are necessary every 4-6 weeks after the initial infusions are completed.
