Frustrated with a lack of success after having tried countless oral medications over the years to deal with my depression and anxiety, I was looking for new treatment options when I found Dr. Prashad and her team at Houston Ketamine Therapeutics.
I had never heard of ketamine therapy before, and I encourage you to do your own research, but from my understanding it is a fairly cutting-edge technique for addressing treatment-resistant depression.
Each and every patient reacts differently to ketamine (as with any medicine), but it’s honestly not an exaggeration to say that ketamine therapy has changed my life. Depression can be difficult to explain, but I’ll be honest and say there were times before I started ketamine therapy when it felt like it took a massive amount of energy just to get out of bed in the morning or try and make a phone call. Instead of just trying to cope with my day-to-day and feeling like I’m barely squeaking by, I’m now able to make positive and empowered decisions that are helping me achieve my goals and desires.
Dr. Prashad is warm, caring and the kind of person who makes you feel instantly at ease. She has been incredibly sensitive to the unique needs and stressors of my individual circumstance and I can tell she honestly cares about helping her patients achieve their “best life.”
The office is impeccably clean and conveniently located inside the Loop, and the office staff (special shout out to Candice!) is always welcoming and ready to assist in any way they can.
