The Experts in Advanced Treatments for Mental Health

Because life is too precious to spend it on a medication merry-go-round

What to do when traditional treatment falls short?

Kadima arose out of the recognition that there is a great need for mental illness treatments that are more effective than the traditional ones which have dominated psychiatry for the past 50 years (e.g. conventional antidepressants and talk therapies). 

We are the premier provider of cutting-edge approaches to treat neuropsychiatric conditions administered by compassionate, highly qualified clinicians.

KADIMA means FORWARD and our name embodies our mission, to help our patients advance forward to a more fulfilling life.

OUR SERVICES

These are some of the advanced tools we use:

Personal Consultation

Your journey forward will start with a personal consultation with David Feifel, MD, PhD, who will review your symptoms, past treatments, answer your questions, and explain how each of our advanced treatments or clinical research opportunities may be appropriate for you. Together, you and Dr. Feifel will develop a customized treatment plan. Successful treatment of a complex psychiatric condition requires expertise and as a recognized leader in advanced treatments for mental illness, nobody is more qualified to help you develop an optimized plan to move your life forward. Learn more about Dr. Feifel’s qualifications.

Ketamine

Ketamine is a decades-old anesthetic drug that has recently been developed into a breakthrough treatment for mental illness that can produce rapid and dramatic improvement in depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, pain, and eating disorders. Dr. Feifel established the world’s first Ketamine treatment program for mental illness in 2008 and has treated thousands of patients since and this unparalleled experience is the foundation for Kadima’s unique, highly personalized approach to ketamine treatment which is the key to our great success!

Deep TMS

Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) is the most advanced version of TMS , a revolutionary approach to treating psychiatric and neurological conditions without medication. Kadima’s highly advanced TMS program is founded on Dr. Feifel’s extensive experience and research with TMS, starting in 2009, when he established San Diego’s very first TMS treatment program at UC San Diego.

Esketamine (SPRAVATO™ )

Spravato is form of ketamine, S-ketamine, administered by nasal spray. FDA approved for treatment-resistant depression and suicidal ideation, it is covered by many insurance companies. Kadima has been a certified Spravato treatment center since the drug’s release in XXX and we have acquired extensive experience with spravato and developed approaches to optimize its therapeutic effects

Psychedelic-integration Therapy​

Certain drugs can induce a temporary shift in perception and insight that produce robust therapeutic effects on mental illness. Trained therapists can enhance the therapeutic benefits by helping patients integrate the “psychedelic” insights into their daily lives. Kadima has a team of therapists skilled in PIT to enhance treatment with ketamine and other psychedelics

Theta Burst Stimulation

Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS) is an advanced method of TMS that emerged from research into the brain’s natural firing rhythms. It involves applying short, high frequency bursts of magnetic pulses to strengthen brain regions that regulate mood, motivation, fear, negative thoughts, etc, By using advanced deep TMS technology to deliver TBS, Kadima is able to combine the advantages of both these innovations.

Dr. Feifel is probably the most kind and sincere doctor I have ever met in my 47 years. He is always quick to respond to personal situations and has sincere compassion. He listens to his patients and always does what is in the best interest of the person seeking treatment. I would highly recommend Dr. Feifel both as a friend as well as a physician. 5 stars.

My experience with Kadima saved my life. For someone who was very anxious and skeptical of ketamine, this was great. The team truly felt almost like a small family, and I can't thank them enough for their compassion and for the work they do. For anyone out there suffering and considering the innovative treatments offered by Dr. Feifel and his team, I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Dr. Feifel is certainly the most experienced psychiatrist I have ever worked with. He is not only a fine clinician but compassionate and a good listener. I would recommend him to anyone considering TMS or an advanced mental health technique for a long-time illness.
