A Note from Dr. Mahjoubi, MD:

Hello and welcome to the Ketamine Healing Clinic of Los Angeles. My name is Dr. David Mahjoubi, MD, and I’m a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist, having passed the requirements of the American Board of Anesthesiology. My experience with intravenous Ketamine dates back to my training in 2006 at the University of Southern California during an Anesthesiology residency program.

Following my residency, I joined the Anesthesia Group at Northridge Hospital Medical Center, where I was the most active user of IV Ketamine for both conscious sedation and general anesthesia cases. I went on to work at surgical centers throughout Southern California and noted beneficial mental health effects in many of my patients post-procedurally.

Researching the literature regarding IV Ketamine and its benefits for people with Major Depression & Chronic Pain, I learned of its ability to really help those who have been resistant to other treatments for depression.

Ketamine Healing Clinic of Los Angeles was thus founded, and now we provide a highly effective treatment for patients with treatment-resistant depression and chronic pain. If you are suffering from these conditions I urge you to not put off treatment any longer – contact us today.

Dr. David Mahjoubi, MD is a Diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology. He earned his Doctor of Medicine at The Chicago Medical School and completed his residencies at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center and USC / Los Angeles County Medical Center. He currently serves as the president of the American Board of Ketamine Physicians (ABKP.org). The ABKP is a non-profit organization dedicated to lifelong learning as well as advancing scientific literature with regards to ketamine treatments. He is the recipient of numerous awards and honors throughout his academic years, and has been recognized as a “Top Doctor – Best Anesthesiologist” by Los Angeles Magazine multiple years in a row. Dr. Mahjoubi carries over 16 years of experience with intravenous Ketamine, and is the author of multiple publications in the medical field. He holds a flawless record with the Medical Board of California and American Board of Anesthesiology.
