At Boston MindCare, in Lexington, Massachusetts, patients receive direct care from experienced anesthesiologists who have trained extensively in the safe use of ketamine. Our physicians use evidence-based ketamine therapy to provide relief from depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and select chronic pain disorders including CRPS, fibromyalgia, and migraines. Led by Jason Yee, MD, and Isabel Legarda, MD, the team offers personalized solutions to help patients overcome their health concerns and improve their quality of life.

As one of the oldest ketamine clinics in Massachusetts, Boston MindCare sets the standard for evidence-based, safe, and effective ketamine treatments. Because safety is always of utmost concern, Boston MindCare implements protocols in an office-based setting that are typically only seen in a hospital operating room. Patients can rest assured that while they are peacefully receiving ketamine treatments, their providers are implementing continuous vital sign monitoring and have access to emergency airway equipment and medications, oxygen, IV fluids, and even an automated external defibrillator (AED) should the need ever arise. By providing hospital level care in a private clinic, every patient receives individualized attention in a safe and relaxing environment that optimizes his or her experience.

The team at Boston MindCare cares deeply about all their patients and they strive to take care of each patient as an actual person, not just as a random diagnosis that needs treating. The team listens to the concerns and needs of their patients to establish a trusting relationship as they work together to determine the best treatment course. During each visit, the providers encourage patients to ask questions and to be actively involved in the decision–making process. They aim to deliver excellent and effective care while providing patients with the support they need to reach their goals.
