Stella Center Irvine offers an interventional psychiatry approach to mental health. We treat mental health challenges as injuries, not disorders, by aiming to heal the injury instead of just managing the symptoms. Our ketamine therapy protocols pair in-office, medically guided infusions with virtual integration therapy to bring dramatic healing in the window of transformation following treatment.

Real Patients, Real Stories

Your team was so caring and professional. I appreciated the candid and informative responses to my questions. I did my treatment with Dr. Romig in Irvine – the office is beautiful and calming, the staff was incredible, and the procedure was remarkably straightforward. And most important, my results are unbelievable. I have a calm in my mind and body that I haven’t felt in 40 years. It wasn’t a cure all, but I’m now able to actually use other tools to improve my life.

Ketamine therapy has given me my life back! Traditional therapy and medications didn’t work for me. I was unable to leave my home or take basic care of myself. Now I feel hope again. I can have relationships and explore the world. I feel balanced and calm. Dr. Romig was great at explaining the process. He was able to reassure me when I was anxious before the therapy.

— Justin S.

I decided to try ketamine therapy after years of being on and off antidepressants. I also have a history of panic attacks and PTSD. The recommended protocol is 6 treatments over the course of 2 weeks. I started to feel better, happier, and lighter after about 3 treatments. By the 6th, it felt like my outlook on life had really shifted. The facility is extremely clean and the environment is very relaxing. Dr. Romig has been doing research on ketamine therapy for the last decade so he is extremely informative and helpful through the entire process. I recommend going with someone you love and trust to hold your hand through the first treatment as it can be overwhelming, but the results are truly incredible!
