Dr. Shah is an MD physician and is Board Certified in Anesthesiology and Board Certified in Pain Medicine. The hallmark of our practice is attention to detail, approaching the ketamine Program as practice of medicine.
This is part of our metabolic approach to mental and physical wellness and health encompassing reducing insulin resistance by a multidisciplinary model of diet and lifestyle components. There is emerging evidence that majority of the psychiatric disorders are symptoms of an underlying mitochondrial dysfuntion caused by insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and inflammation. Ketamine works in part by contributing to improving mitogenesis , synaptogenesis and neural plasticity. Our thinking is that Ketamine would get patients back on track quickly and then maintain the remission by employing mitochondrial improving strategies of simply adjusting diet and lifestyle factors. This empowers our patients, reduces cost, and over all disease and pill burden.
Every individual has their own unique physiology and responses to medications. We individualize every program to a patient’s specific needs and responses and rapidly make changes as needed to get the best outcomes in a most cost effective way possible.
All the treatments are planned in close consultation with our patients who play an integral part in their own care plan. They are conducted and closely monitored by Dr. Shah personally so that the patients are safe, comfortable, and get the most benefit from the Program.
