Dr. Mandel is truly exceptional. The ketamine worked when nothing else would. I was depressed for five years. After taking ketamine, I felt hopeful and optimistic again thanks to Dr. Mandel. I was dreading life before and now I have my life back. I am truly grateful.

The ketamine clinic I had been going to in Honolulu to treat my 35 yr. resistant depression closed with no notice. I spent weeks researching alternatives where the doc would be experienced and where patients had been seen for more than just a year or two. My first choice was KETAMINE CLINICS OF LA, established by Dr Steve Mandel who was both extremely qualified and an advocate for people with brain disease. Many clinics are owned by docs but run by staff .. NOT HERE!! He was WORKING in the clinic, met, treated/ oversaw all treatments and followed up after the treatment, personally and via phone calls, after the treatment as well as a couple weeks later. Everyone who worked there was equally patient oriented ...from receptionists to the PAs. It was an excellent experience, and the cost was average for the USA. It actually cost less for me to fly to LA, stay over night and have two infusions than the cost of 2 infusions in Honolulu. I GIVE DR. MANDEL 10 STARS !!

Dr. Mandel is one of the most caring and compassionate doctors I have ever met. After years of trying numerous medications that didn't work for debilitating depression I started researching ECT, TMS and Ketamine infusions. I decided to try Ketamine infusions. I'm so thankful I found Dr. Mandel and his amazing staff. Dr Mandel is so warm and kind and knowledgeable. I truly believe he and the Ketamine infusions saved my life. My depression is finally gone!

This man doesn't even deserve a star at all. During my consultation he was rude and condescending didn't even listen to me! He denied me treatment for a reason that my other doctors felt made him incompetent for my procedure. I went to this doctor feeling very sick but now I feel even more so because of the emotional anguish he caused me. His staff made me feel like a puny human being and I didn't feel respected and like they cared. Don't go to this man he made a couple of severe errors during m

Truly the best doc I've been to. Took the time to listen to me and my concerns FIRST, then told me what he though was best and made me laugh along the way too, something I hadnt done in a long time before I went to Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles to treat my depression. I had TRD and didnt respond to anything. Ketamine really works and I'm really grateful I got mine from Dr. Mandel.

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.

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.

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.
