Dr. Steven Mandel, MD

Board-certified anesthesiologist, masters in psychology, Steven L Mandel M.D. is the founder and president of Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles. Steve has had a passion for healing since he was a little boy, starting with nursing a robin back to health by feeding it with an eye-dropper after its unfortunate encounter with the neighborhood cat. Since then, he's become a pioneer among depression specialists and pain management doctors. His unique combination of experience and education in both anesthesiology and psychology makes him especially well-suited to provide IV Ketamine Infusion Therapy. He attended NYU where he majored in psychology in addition to completing his pre-medical studies. He continued his education at the University of Cincinnati Graduate School in Psychology on a full scholarship, earning his master's degree. After graduating from the USC Keck School of Medicine, Dr. Mandel did his residency in Anesthesiology at Massachusetts General Hospital and at UCLA's Center for the Health Sciences. He is board certified in Anesthesiology, with extensive experience in the provision of anesthesia in both inpatient and outpatient settings for adults and children. When he isn't caring for patients, Dr. Mandel enjoys spending time with his wife of 31 years, their 4 children, and their golden retriever Magellan. He is also an avid outdoorsman, serving as a sailing instructor and fleet surgeon for his yacht club and as a provider of outdoor emergency care as a member of the Mt. Baldy Ski Patrol.

Patient Comments (4)
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Mandel took care of me when no one else would. I admit I was a difficult patient, but I was suffering and doing the best I could. I have been treatment resistant my whole life and to find someone as caring as Dr. Mandel and a treatment as effective as ketamine has truly been a miracle. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. I have my life back.
in San Diego, Ca |
Dr. Mandel and his entire staff are incredibly knowledgeable and caring and have lifted my depression in 1 week flat. After many years of suffering and countless failed attempts by other doctors, I couldnt be happier to get the relief I've gotten from Dr. Mandel. I feel everyone in his office is just great and I cant thank all of you enough.
in Los Angeles, CA |
I was very anxious about my ketamine infusions because I heard a lot of stuff about hallucinations while doing research online but my experience was nothing like that. I did feel weird & out of my body but nothing scary. If you've had gas at the dentist, it was like that but stronger. Anyways, Dr. Mandel was really understanding & explained everything to me very thoroughly. I could tell he really wanted me to get better & have a good experience. Its been 2 months and I'm still depression free.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Mandel was so compassionate and caring; honest and realistic about setting my expectations. The best part is the treatment worked for me and my depression has been in remission for 3 months. I cant thank Dr. Mandel and his staff enough for literally saving my life.
