Doc Bowen and the staff not only help your situation they truly care, all around amazing. I am going back just for routine maintenance and it"s trip for me, since I live in Florida which goes without saying anything else.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Bowen and his practice. Both I and my son have had the ketamine treatments and have benefited tremendously. In context, the doctors out in California have so called 'protocols' and many do not do IV infusions. Also, they cost 2x, or more, than Dr. Bowen. So, my son flies from California to Charleston every so often. That is a true, real life example of how we value Dr. Bowen and his center. Again, I would give Dr. Bowen 10 stars if I could. He cares and he works with every patient individually, outstanding!

My experience with Dr Bowen has been exceptional. He is professional, kind and caring. He always takes the time to explain things in a way I can understand. He goes above and beyond office visits, calling after hours to follow-up or even taking weekend appointments as necessary. I highly recommend the innovative style of Dr Bowen and his practice!!

Every few years I travel from Argentina to see Dr. Bowen. His ketamine treatment has made me see some light after trying everything else I could find. The way he and his Staff treat you are impecable. The treatment has made my depression recede and live in a "normal" way. He always finds time for a patient and will do whatever he can to help. I will always be grateful.

The medical treatment I received at CKC was a game changer for coping with depression. In addition to providing effective treatments, Dr. Bowen and his employees never judged and always treated me with respect and kindness. I recommend Dr. Bowen and CKC without reservation.

I had pretty much give up hope until I found Dr. Bowen and the Charleston Keatamine Center. Dr. Bowen took a lot of time getting to know me and I felt like it was the first time any doctor actually understood how I felt. After doing as much reading as I could about Keatamine and how it worked and it’s track record of helping others I was open and willing to give it a shot. The results for me was not like a light switch turning on or off. But it was very clear that for the first time in a long time, I felt ‘normal’ again. For me, that was a miracle! I have done more than a few treatments and over the past three years have had some follow up treatments and it really has been a very positive experience for me. If you are where I was, out of options and ready to give up, DON’T. Not before giving this a try.

Dr. Bowen and his staff have saved my life. He genuinely cares for me and finds solutions to issues I face. I would recommed to anyone requiring his services, especially treatment resistant depression. Ashley, Laird and the rest of the staff make every visit comfortable and pleasant. Dr. Bowen is the best and truly looks at patients in a holistic view. I am thankful for the Charleston Ketamine Center.

I watched my husband decline and suffer with excrutiating pain after being diagnosed with a rare, progressive spinal disease. The doctors we were seeing offered little to no help in trying to understand or treat his disorder. And after years of pain management and a hamster wheel of referrals, we met Dr. Bowen and our world was forever changed. Dr. Bowen is a rare find in the medical profession. He truly cares about his patients and takes the time to connect with them, understand their situation however difficult it may be and find solutions to help them. He is available to them whenever the need arises. The entire staff is wonderful. Dr. Bowen has given my husband back a quality of life and we will forever be greatful.

Since I was 10 years old I have suffered from bi polar disorder, depression, and anxiety disorder. I have been in therapy and treatment for twenty five years. Before going to Dr. Bowen I had tried everything possible, including two extended stays in a private psychiatric hospital, group therapy, medication, etc.. — At one point I even went as far to live at a yoga ashram in the hopes that a healthier and more spiritual life style would cure me. This past winter I was hit with a load of depression that left me catatonic and unable to function. After trying so many different treatments, I was at first a bit skeptical of ketamine therapy, but within two weeks of seeing Dr. Bowen I had begun to feel like myself again. I credit this not only with the effectiveness of ketamine as psychiatric medicines promising new drug, but also with the professionalism, expertise, and compassion of Dr. Bowen and his amazing team of nurses and assistants. For anyone who has suffered from depression and anxiety and experienced the frustration of trying medicine upon medicine only to see the same results, I highly recommend Charleston Ketamine Center. It has without a doubt changed my life.

I have been seeing Dr Bowen since October of 2017. His kindness and caring nature have been instrumental in changing my life in miraculous ways. He’s the only doctor I know that still operates with old time altruism. His compassion for those of us suffering from untreatable depression is tantamount to my personal recovery and to others. Without ketamine infusions I would still be in a chronic state of depression which has literally caused me to lose the majority of my life. Before my treatments, I couldn’t get out of bed, I couldn’t feel joy or sadness, I couldn’t feel. I was unable to have healthy interpersonal relationships. My decisions were based on impulse and fear. I have been depression free for 8 months now. I have not used sleep for escape once, I no longer isolate, I can make solid, well thought out decisions, I can handle stress without shutting down. My life has changed exponentially. The changes are nothing short of a miracle. Ketamine and Doctor Bowen gave me back my life, and for this, I am eternally grateful.

Dr. Bowen and his staff are the best. Coming here has changed my life for the better in so many ways! Not only has this helped my depression TREMENDOUSLY, but Dr. Bowen has also helped me get off of benzodiazepines without hospitalization. This place is amazing and worth every penny if you are someone who is medication resistant and looking for a miracle. After a while the staff really becomes like family too. Sometimes just being here is enough to cheer me up because everyone makes me laugh so hard :). I highly, highly recommend this place!

Dr Bowen has helped me so much! He is a very compassionate, understanding and knowledgeable about my pain (CRPS). He takes the time to really listen to me and to explain how my treatment will effect me. Anytime I have had to contact him he responds in a timely manner and works with me to help the problem or get me in to see him. His staff is awesome and helpful. They really show you true southern hospitality. I could not ask for better care!! If you are struggling with weather to contact Dr Bowen for care just do it you won’t be disappointed.

I am a 56 year old women with a successful career.I suffered with treatment resistant depression. I was diagnosed with TRD in 2000.I was diagnosed with depression at age 25. I tried every antidepressant that pharmacology had available. They would work for a while and then stop.The best pharmacologist in Charleston told me ketamine would be my only hope. But it was not available.I self medicated with opiates after surgery,because they relieved my depression, and pain for the first time in my life.The surgeon assured me that OxyContin was not addictive. That began the merry-go-round with doctors,and psychiatrist,and therapists. They did their best to help me. When I met Dr. Richard Bowen it was a gift from God. His staff is impeccable, kind and loving. If it were not for this meeting by Gods Grace.I would not be alive today. I was on the verge of insanity,and suicide,because of my lifelong battle with alcoholism,drug addiction, trauma and mental illness. Most importantly mental illness! If you or a loved one is in need you have found your home. With all Sincerity ,Beth P.S. I am on the road to being happy, joyous ,and free.This is a modern day scientific miracle. Ketamine is a miracle in my opinion,sent from God to help the suffering.My prayers are with you and your family.

The Center is Phenominal! I live in Charlotte but chose to drive to Chastown for treatments. I checked Charlotte, and Durham etc and found Dr. Bowen - the only one to care and even call me directly to see if I could possibly benefit. Do not trust a "chain" - invest in a lifesaving treatment with personal attention.
