Anesthesiologist | Crestline Health and Wellness

In 2019 Dr. Amy van Elkan founded the first ketamine clinic in Mountain Brook, Alabama. Crestline Health and Wellness was developed to help people who are suffering from severe mood disorders and neuropathic pain. At the time, there was no option in the Birmingham area to pursue ketamine infusion therapies in a focused clinical setting.
During her UAB Anesthesiology residency, Dr. van Elkan began using ketamine for both general anesthesia and sedation cases where she noted significant positive post-surgical patient outcomes. Based on her extensive experience administering ketamine both inpatient and outpatient, clinical research, and her psychology bachelor’s degree she decided to focus her practice exclusively on ketamine infusion therapy.
