    Forward Ketamine is great! Matt, Corey, Brian, and Lisa provide excellent care. I mostly worked with Matt and Corey due to my appointment times -- their gentle demeanor and responsiveness relieved my anxiety when I needed extra attention. … More I have seen many healthcare professionals recently, and the folks at Forward Ketamine undoubtedly stand out at the top.

    It is hard to articulate what the experience at Forward has been for me. I was quite apprehensive about going through this treatment but Matt and Corey were very assuring and communicative about what the treatment entailed. The IV experience … More itself cannot be put into words, but I can attest that after 6 infusions, my mental health has much improved. My ruminations that often led down dark roads has much improved and my ability to redirect my thoughts is quite noticeable. This treatment will not lead to euphoria, which is quite unrealistic anyway, but will grant you more peace of mind, focus and clarity.
    Thank you Matt and Corey for all your insights and conversations we shared!


"I stopped into Forward Ketamine after first noticing the clinic in early 2023. After talking with Brian, I was intrigued but not convinced that ketamine therapy was for me. When I got home, I struggled to find good online resources about ketamine therapy. After finding some Reddit threads that seemed promising -- and talking with Brian more -- I decided to try ketamine therapy.

At the time, I had been taking an SSRI for depression and anxiety for eight years. I was also drinking problematically and smoking weed daily in an effort to self medicate. I noticed an uptick in mood after one infusion. After the fourth infusion, I surprised myself by turning down requests to go drinking. The effects overall were subtle but definitely noticeable. When I describe the experience to my friends, I say that it’s like my default settings were changed. I found it much easier to avoid drinking and smoking.

In the weeks after treatment, I started to feel much better overall. I also did my best to pair the ketamine therapy with other life changes like exercising more to maximize the positive effects. My friends and family noticed positive differences in my mood, but what surprised me the most is that casual connections noticed the changes, too. A few weeks after my last infusion, a waitress at a restaurant that I’m a regular at pulled me aside to ask what I was doing differently. The changes were that noticeable.

Six months after the first infusion, I still feel much better. Under the guidance of my doctor, I have stopped taking my antidepressants. I’ve been able to cut back my weed smoking and drinking to truly recreational usage. While I still experience some depression symptoms, I no longer struggle with anxiety."

We wanted to share this story as a token of our deep gratitude for your hard work in bringing Forward Ketamine into reality. Yesterday during our dinner conversation, I shared with the family my insufficient but sincere summary of research related to awe and the podcast I'd heard featuring Dr. Keltner. Then, I asked for us to share a time when we experienced awe and our daughter immediately responded with her ketamine experience. She then went on to share, unprompted, that she is moving differently through the world as a result. Specifically, she shared a story about feeling pissed off, but absent were her recent and constantly-connected feelings of wanting to kill herself. I am not lying when I say you saved her life. And, by extension, trauma to the rest of our family. Seriously, we owe you a debt that we'll never be able to repay. Thank you, thank you, thank you,
