Ketamine Infusion Therapy Clinic Targets Treatment-Resistant Depression

Kathleen Wong
Anonymous handwritten patient records reveal date of ketamine infusion and experiential outcome over time.

Ketamine, an FDA-approved surgical anesthetic, is increasingly being used off-label to help people with treatment-resistant depression. Psychiatrist Kathleen Wong, M.D. is pioneering the treatment in Northwest Arkansas. She opened an IV-ketamine infusion therapy clinic in 2017 in Fayetteville. One patient agreed to disclose how the treatments have changed her life.
