How is PTSD diagnosed and treated?

Dr. Kullman diagnoses PTSD after discussing your symptoms, lifestyle, medical history, and past trauma. He may suggest the following PTSD treatments:

Ketamine Infusion Therapy

Infusing ketamine into your bloodstream offers quick relief from depression, anxiety, and other PTSD symptoms. 

Your treatment may last about 40-60 minutes, and multiple treatment sessions typically provide the most relief. Dr. Kullman determines when to schedule your next treatment and how many sessions you likely need. 

Home Ketamine Therapy 

Home ketamine therapy involves using nasal sprays, pills, or dissolvable tablets from the comfort of your home. 

After meeting with Dr. Kullman and determining you're a candidate for home ketamine therapy, the medicines are delivered to your doorstep. Have someone with you when you use ketamine at home and take the rest of the day off from work.
