Midwest Ketamine Center in Arlington Heights, Illinois logo

The medical professionals at Midwest Ketamine Center operate under their mission to treat every patient with the respect, dignity, and compassion they deserve. They have first-hand knowledge of how detrimental mood and chronic pain disorders can be and they go above and beyond to help patients find relief through ketamine therapy.

The Midwest Ketamine Center is led by Dr. Vikas Patel, a board-certified Emergency Medicine physician, and veteran of the U.S. Navy.

Your Treatment: What to Expect

On the day of each infusion, you will need someone to accompany you to your appointment and drive you home as the ketamine will leave you a little tired. Upon arrival, Midwest Ketamine Center will pretreat you with nausea medication if necessary. Infusions are given in private rooms, lasting about 45 minutes for those treating mood disorders, while for pain disorders, the process can be several hours. Most effects of the medicine wear off within minutes after the infusion, but patients can feel more tired than usual for a few hours after the infusion. Ketamine is generally well-tolerated, but if any side effects are encountered such as visual disturbances or elevated blood pressure, the clinic’s staff will quickly give IV medications to counteract them.

Patients typically receive a series of 6 infusions over the course of approximately 2 weeks for mood disorders. Single booster infusions can be scheduled to achieve symptom relief again.
