Boulder Mind Care

At Boulder Mind Care, we aim to partner with mental healthcare professionals to be premiere provider of ketamine therapy in the Boulder area. We understand that, although providers are becoming more educated and aware of the benefits ketamine can provide, they may be simply inexperienced or uncomfortable with infusion procedures, and/or their facilities may not be properly set up to perform them.

As a board-certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Grindle is highly trained and experienced in administering Ketamine intravenously, and monitoring patients during an infusion. He understands the severity of the mental conditions, and fragile state of some patients.

Dr. Grindle feels strongly that a team-based approach is in the best interest of his ketamine infusion patients; this is one of the reasons it is a requirement for all Boulder Mind Care patients to be under the care and supervision of a Psychiatrist, Therapist, Family Physician, or other mental healthcare professional qualified to diagnose and treat mental illness.

Initial Consultation

We ask all of our patients to come in for a face-to-face visit prior to their first infusion. During this visit, we will review your medical and mental health history, answer your questions, discuss ketamine infusion therapy, and explain what to expect in more detail. In addition, we may order and/or obtain relevant laboratory tests at this visit, as well. We request that you help us to obtain these results as soon as possible. Certain conditions, such as low vitamin D levels, anemia, low testosterone, etc. can contribute to or even be the primary cause of depression and anxiety.

We strive to maximize the probability of helping you overcome your depression, utilizing the most current clinical research, our medical judgement, and your individual medical history. If we feel you are an appropriate candidate for ketamine infusion therapy, and you want to proceed, we will then schedule your initial infusion series. At the same time, we reserve the right to refuse treatment based on our clinical impression.

Therapeutic Ketamine Infusions

The protocol is to administer an initial series of six infusions over a two to three week span. (We will work with you if you cannot strictly adhere to this schedule, but it is best to try to begin your treatments as closely to this timetable as possible.) Overall, over 80% of patients experience a significant reduction in their depressive symptoms. Research has shown that starting off with the series of six infusions results in a much longer lasting symptom reduction. Subsequently, only single “booster” infusions are necessary to maintain your improvement.

Before we begin your Ketamine infusions, we will encourage you to continue, or resume, some form of ongoing ‘talk therapy’ with an appropriate mental healthcare provider. Each infusion runs between 40 to 60 minutes; you should expect to be with us for a total of 90 minutes to two hours for each infusion.
