“Ketamine therapy is helping the best of me shine while quieting the thoughts and anxiety that can so often be self-defeating. It has, quite simply, been life-changing.”—Jack, patient

Up to a third of patients with depression do not respond to several attempts at treatment or struggle with side effects. Dissatisfied with the relatively ineffective available treatments for these patients, Dr. Prashad sought out the most evidence-based, innovative options. She specializes in comprehensive and state-of-the-art psychiatric evaluations and innovative psychiatric treatment. Our primary focus is the cutting-edge treatments that we offer. We understand that many patients have extensively tried conventional medications and therapies and are looking for more advanced treatments. These patients deserve to have these advanced treatments administered by a specialist fully committed to using these modalities and your treatment success.

Ketamine therapy offers a chance to find hope again.

This treatment been hailed as the most important advancement in the treatment of depression in the past 50 years. Dr. Prashad is one of the most experienced ketamine psychiatrists in the country, and has presented on the national level. She first became interested in IV ketamine because of the robust, rapid effects and lack of side effects between treatments. Depression and suicidal thoughts are often lifted within hours or days rather than weeks. Eighty percent of patients show dramatic improvement in their depressive symptoms after treatment. She is also excited to be one of the first providers to offer the newly FDA approved version of ketamine, esketamine (Spravato).

Additionally, she became the first physician to offer deep transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy for depression and OCD in the Houston area. It is a revolutionary approach to treating psychiatric conditions without medication. This treatment is considered the most advanced TMS system currently available and is covered by insurance.

Dr. Prashad is a board-certified psychiatrist, who completed both medical school and residency at Baylor College of Medicine. She understands that any one treatment, no matter how cutting-edge, can’t be the right solution for everyone, and treatments must be customized for each patient. She is focused on providing patients the right treatment for the highest level of success. These innovative options are giving us the ability to fight treatment resistant illnesses in an entirely new way. Her patients describe her as compassionate, insightful and approachable, and 100 percent dedicated to help them achieve their goals.

“We’ve always prided ourselves in offering the most advanced treatments to our patients,” Dr. Prashad said. “Insurance coverage of esketamine and deep TMS allows these life-saving treatments to be accessible to patients that need it. With one-third of those suffering from depression unable to respond to antidepressant medications, being able to provide relief to patients that are otherwise treatment resistant is a great opportunity.”
