Our Story

Dr. Sendi has spent over 23 years in the medical field and has observed the rise of obesity, addiction, depression, and pain as they have affected the quality of life of so many people. There are so many available therapies that are underutilized but have great effectiveness in these conditions. Having treated these ailments for so many years, it became apparent to Dr. Sendi that many practitioners were poorly prepared to intervene. Many patients lost opportunities to improve their health and wellness. Progressive therapies for addictions, weight loss, and chronic pain have been overlooked as options for many patients. Seeing this, Dr. Sendi decided to create this center with the expectation of helping patients reach their goals of health, mitigate risk, and enjoy the health they deserve. 

Ketamine for Depression Treatment

Ketamine, first developed and approved by the FDA as an anesthetic, is a promising new innovation in the field of depression treatment. While you may know it as the club drug often abused as Special K, Ketamine is what some doctors are calling the biggest breakthrough in depression treatment in decades. When infused at a low dose into the bloodstream, research shows that Ketamine may be up to 80% effective at providing relief for depression symptoms.
