People with various treatment-resistant mood disorders can find relief from their debilitating symptoms at The Costello Clinic. The healthcare providers offer ketamine infusions for patients that have not found recovery through traditional forms of medicine. Conditions they treat at the clinic include depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and panic disorder.
The Costello Clinic is led by Dr. Louis E. Costello, a board-certified psychiatrist specializing in Child Psychiatry. Dr. Costello sees all patients for their first consultation before finding them the most suitable Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner to carry on with their treatments.
The main goal of the staff at the psychiatric center is to help people regain control over their mental health. With knowledge, experience, and the power of ketamine therapy, the team hopes to help as many people as possible overcome their disorders.
Prior to meeting with the patient for their initial appointment, Dr. Costello has each patient complete an online diagnostic questionnaire. The questionnaire is a smart test that takes approximately two hours to complete. As one question is answered, the next question is determined based on the answer given to the previous question. This allows the questionnaire to focus on specific issues a patient may be dealing with. Many patients have multiple concerns and this questionnaire allows each issue to be fully explored.
The questionnaire generates a 22-page report which Dr. Costello reviews prior to the first appointment with each new patient. This questionnaire may be completed at home or here in the clinic’s office, for your convenience. If the patient is 18 years or older, they will complete the questionnaire themselves. If the patient is younger than 18, the parent or legal guardian will be responsible for completing the questionnaire on the patient’s behalf.
