What to Expect

Eligibility

You do not need to be an existing patient at PASWFL. If you are not currently a patient, Dr. Pollack will meet with you to discuss your medical history and to determine if ketamine treatment is right for you.

Pre-Appointment

Psychiatric Associates of Southwest Florida discourages eating or drinking anything for four hours before your scheduled appointment. Clear liquids are allowed up to two hours before your appointment.

You won’t be able to drive afterward, so plan on bringing someone to drive you home.

Treatment

All treatments are performed at PASWFL’s office. Some patients feel an improvement after their first infusion, some patients feel an improvement after they complete their full treatment plan (usually of 6-8 infusions) and some patients may need to go through multiple treatment plans. It’s best to ask Dr. Pollack directly after he’s had a chance to familiarize himself with your medical history.
