HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH KETAMINE?

I. Complete Intake Forms

  1. Complete the Patient History Form.
  2. Complete the Consent Form.
  3. Complete the Pain Assessment Form
  4. Complete the Patient Anxiety Scale.
  5. Complete the HIPPA Disclosure Form.

Once these forms are completed you can now call Elevated Health and a member of our team will help you schedule your consultation and screening.

II. Schedule a Consultation and Screening

Once we receive your patient intake forms, a Patient Liaison will contact you to arrange a screening, which consists of:

  • An online psychological assessment.
  • A review of your psychological history with a mental health professional.
  • A review of your medical history review with a clinical administrator.

You will also learn more about the treatment protocol, what to expect during the infusion process, and ideal outcomes. Most steps in this process can be completed in person at your clinic of choice or remotely via phone or a secured web conferencing system.

Each consultation is done in our clinic by Dr. Darin Stettler, our Board Certified Anesthesiologist, who will evaluate you personally and make a recommendation for your care.

There is a consultation fee of 100$.  That fee will be applied to your first infusion if you choose to continue with treatment.

III. Prepare for Treatment

In most instances once treatment has been approved an infusion can be done that day.  Most treatment plans are broken down into two parts.  1-Stabilization period which typically lasts two weeks, with two infusions per week. 2- Ongoing Maintenance period which varies from patient to patient.

Pre-Procedure requirements:

  • Come with an empty stomach!  Do NOT eat or drink anything (not even water) for at least 4 hours prior to appointment.
  • You MUST have an escort to drive you home due to the nature of this procedure.  This is MANDATORY!
  •  If you have a driving service (uber, lyft, etc) they must be to the clinic  minutes before your infusion is scheduled to end.  Infusions typically last 45 minutes.
  • Wear comfortable clothing the day of your procedure.
  • We encourage all patients to use the restroom prior to your infusion.
  • Bring a pillow and blanket to make you more comfortable during your treatment.
  • If you’d like to listen to music please bring your own headphones.  We like to make sure the office environment is comfortable to all our patients and we do not permit loud music.
