Dr.Sendi's passion for freeing patients from mental health symptoms was evident the moment I met him. He worked seamlessly with my care team. He always demonstrated compassion and competency. He was available for questions and concerns. I experienced significant lift of depressive symptoms and I'm experiencing a new emotional resilience to trauma-related symptoms. My progress has been praised by my psychotherapist and psychiatrist.

I have had a great experience with Dr. Sendi. He does a great job of explaining my treatment plan in a way that is easy for me to understand. He does a great job of checking on how I have been feeling and adjusting my treatment accordingly. He really does seem to care and instills a sense of trust.

Dr. Sendi and his staff are caring, compassionate and knowledgeable. Dr. Sendi provided the most comprehensive explanation of my depression that I have ever received and gave me hope for a better mental health future. I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with him. He shows so much compassion for his patients and a true hands on approach for each patient, making them feel important at every visit. I have never received this level of care from a psychiatrist.

Dr. Sendi is very professional and knowledgeable - he was quick to diagnose nd treat me with ketamine and nitrous therapies for my Bipolar depression. I have been on oral ketamine and nasal spray ketamine therapies with him since and have had awesome success. Dr. Sendi is quickly available and his office staff is amazing. If you are looking for a ketamine or nitrous therapy center in Virginia, DC, or Maryland, Dr. Sendi is the doc!

Dr. Sendi was the best physician I had ever seen - he seemed to diagnose my problem with ease after I had seen multiple doctors over the years who never were able to get it right. Dr. Sendi came up with a treatment plan and it worked great!! I feel like the world is back for me again! For a ketamine provider in Virginia - Dr. Sendi is the best

Dr. Sendi provided me with amazing service! I had treatment resistant depression and CRPS which responded to a series of ketamine infusions and some basic medication changes,. I have been able to return to work and several of my prior interests that I was unable to do because of my CRPS. Dr. Sendi was available and always able to provide accurate and rapid information. His treatments were fantastic. I referred several friends who also had outstanding results. If you are looking for ketamine therapies in the northern Virginia area, Dr. Sendi can provide them for you.
