Testimonials from Nova Health Recovery Patients

Dr. Sendi and the staff at NOVA Health Recovery are very professional, and the Ketamine treatments have been a lifesaver. I have been struggling with severe depression and PTSD that negatively impacted every area of my life. I have been prescribed many different medications over the last ten years, and nothing worked. After receiving ketamine treatments, I have made significant improvements in my depression and PTSD and overall functioning in all areas of my life.

This medical facility is the best I have ever been in. As a retired RN, I am very conscious of not only the doctor (Dr. Sendi is the best) but the staff as well as the facility itself. I would give many more stars if I was given the opportunity.

Your Treatment: What to Expect

An initial consultation will determine whether ketamine is the right choice for you. Infusions themselves last about 45 minutes and take place in a private room with constant mechanical monitoring of heart rate, pulse, blood oxygen saturation percentages, and blood pressure.

Most patients report a relaxing and peaceful experience. You’ll most likely experience changes in vision and your ability to clearly focus on objects or people and your speech may be slurred or slowed, but you’ll typically have an experience of floating or being disconnected. Patients on average should expect to spend 90 to 120 minutes in the office allowing for the check-in procedure, the active phase of infusion, and recovery time.
