About The Practice

MindPeace Clinics offer highly specialized ketamine infusion therapy, an advanced treatment that effectively and often quickly relieves the symptoms of many mental health and chronic pain syndromes.

The team at MindPeace Clinics, led by esteemed ketamine infusion specialist Patrick Oliver, MD, welcomes patients at their offices in Richmond, Arlington, and Norfolk, Virginia. They’re well known as the most experienced ketamine providers in Virginia, and they have an exceptional overall success rate of 75% for all the conditions they treat.

During ketamine infusion therapy, patients receive a low dose infused slowly over the course of one to four hours. As ketamine reaches the brain, it balances brain chemicals and interacts with pain pathways, giving patients rapid relief from their symptoms.

Patients with mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, suicidal thoughts, and post-traumatic stress disorder can experience a significant improvement in their symptoms.

Chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia and complex regional pain syndrome respond well to ketamine infusion therapy, often giving patients their first substantial pain relief in years.

Ketamine infusion therapy is one of the best treatment options for patients whose underlying mental or physical condition didn’t respond to conventional medications. One of the most common problems, treatment-resistant depression, can quickly improve with ketamine infusion therapy.

MindPeace Clinics are also certified Spravato® treatment centers. Spravato is a nasal spray containing esketamine, a variant of ketamine, that’s FDA-approved for treatment-resistant depression.
