Meet Dr. Steven L. Mandel: Founder & President
Dr. Steven L. Mandel, Founder & President, is a board-certified anesthesiologist with a master’s degree in psychology. Dr. Mandel has over 35 years of experience using ketamine and founded Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles, in 2014 and quickly became a world-renowned expert in treating depression, suicidality, PTSD, anxiety, and chronic pain with IV Ketamine Infusion Therapy. His extensive experience in the provision of anesthesia in both inpatient and outpatient settings for adults and children, along with his background in psychology, equip him with rare expertise when administering Ketamine Infusion Therapy. In fact, Steven Mandel, MD is the only physician providing Ketamine Therapy to have earned degrees in both fields.
Dr. Mandel’s passion for healing began at a young age, starting with nursing a robin back to health by feeding it with an eye-dropper after its unfortunate encounter with the neighborhood cat. Since then, he has worked to heal as many people as possible in a wide variety of clinical settings. As of the start of 2020, he has administered over 9,000 infusions to over 1,500 patients.
As a pioneer who has made countless contributions to Ketamine Infusion Therapy, he has been called upon by various films, television networks, podcasts, radio programs, magazines, and news outlets, such as The Doctors, WIRED video special, BuzzFeed, VICE, ROKU, PBS, CBS national news, ABC News, WIRED Magazine, Los Angeles Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, Anesthesiology News, Yahoo News, San Francisco Daily, and countless others to offer his expertise on the procedure. In addition, physicians from all over the United States seek his guidance on adhering to the best practices of ketamine infusion clinics.
Meet Sam Mandel – Co-founder & Chief Operating Officer
He is a lifelong mental health advocate, actor, and entrepreneur who started Ketamine Clinics LA with his father, Dr. Steven Mandel, in early 2014. As Chief Operating Officer, Sam has made it his mission to ensure each patient receives the caliber of attention and service once exclusively reserved for celebrity clientele. This focus has translated to the highest level of patient satisfaction and treatment outcomes. Since opening its doors, KCLA has become the world’s premier clinic offering Ketamine Infusion Therapy, with a “white-glove” concierge approach to all patients.
While Dr. Mandel oversees the medical aspects of treatment, Sam brings superior service and compassion to patients seeking help. Optimized by technology, the patient experience is crafted for convenience, comfort, and impeccability. Always an entertainer at heart, Sam puts patients at ease through laughter and believes it is an important part of their treatment. Drawing from the best principles in multiple industries, Sam has assembled a knowledgeable, experienced, and warm team that feels more like a family than a staff. Under his leadership, Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles has lived up to its goal of providing high-quality, personalized, compassionate care to each and every individual, and their 100’s of five-star reviews across Yelp, Google, and other social networks reflect this.
Sam has always been passionate about making a positive impact and loves to entertain. As he was exposed to his friends’ and family’s struggles with depression, addiction, and suicide, his passion to bolster healing in others only grew. He continued to volunteer at numerous non-profits, including building homes with Habitat for Humanity and raising funds for veterans and other under-served communities to have access to better healthcare.

PUMP: A Natural History of the Heart

Published

on

By

Pump

For centuries, humans have been fascinated by the heart. Aristotle believed it was the seat of consciousness; the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz mused about how his life would change if only he had one; and poets and musicians from Shakespeare to Tom Petty to Stevie Nicks have written countless words about hearts being cold, broken, and lonely. Now, the critically acclaimed author of Cannibalism and American Museum of Natural History zoologist Bill Schutt turns his attention to this vital organ in PUMP: A Natural History of the Heart (Publication Date: September 21, 2021; $26.95), which explores the mysteries and wonders of the literal heartbeat of life on earth. The first book to present in-depth natural histories of both the human heart and the hearts of dozens of diverse animal species ranging from worms to alligators to bats to sea squirts, PUMP is an illuminating journey that shows how the heart has become the core of not only the circulatory system, but also the natural world.

From a Canadian museum where Schutt examines a rare, preserved blue whale heart the size of a golf cart to New England beaches where horseshoe crabs are being harvested for their life-saving blood to labs where he encounters frozen hibernating wood frogs, PUMP takes readers on a fantastic trip around the world, telling an incredible story of evolution and scientific process. Readers journey with Schutt through human history, too, as philosophers and scientists hypothesize, often wrongly, about what makes our ticker tick. The book traces humanity’s cardiac fascination from the ancient Greeks and Egyptians, who believed that the heart contains the soul, all the way up to modern-day laboratories, where scientists use animal hearts and even plants as the basis for many of today’s cutting-edge therapies. Schutt interviews notable doctors, researchers, and animal experts, revealing unexpected anecdotes and studies including:

  • the science behind the survival of the Antarctic icefish, whose blood contains a natural antifreeze;
  • the use of tropical Zebrafish, an organism that shares more than 70 percent of its genes with humans, to study the regrowth of functional heart muscle in humans;
  • the heart of the Burmese python, which can grow 40 percent after eating a meal, and how this invasive species can help researchers better understand physiological human heart growth;
  • the scientific background on why doctors made the switch from therapeutic bloodletting including the use of leeches to blood transfusions as a way to restore health;
  • the strange science behind the giraffe circulatory system – which includes a massive high-pressure heart that can pump blood to heights of eighteen feet and unique adaptations that prevent blood from rushing to their lowered heads when they drink;
  • the 150-year-old mystery behind the ailments that plagued Charles Darwin for the last forty years of his life, which may be traced to a rare bloodborne disease he contracted during his voyage on the H.M.S. Beagle;
  • the experiments showing the direct relationship between bereavement and Takotsubo syndrome, better known as “broken heart syndrome”;
  • the brand-new technologies utilized by various labs to grow and regenerate the human heart from stem cells, animal hearts, and plants.

Pump is a story about hearts – big hearts, small hearts, cold hearts and even nonexistent hearts,” Schutt, professor emeritus at Long Island University – Post, explains. “The history of our attempts to understand the function of the heart and circulatory system is long, and until relatively recently, riddled with errors. From a hollow cluster of cells with a unique ability to shorten its length to beliefs about the origin of love and the soul to early cardiac medicine, futuristic therapies, and beyond, my hope is that readers will gain appreciation for the degree to which the heart plays a vital role, and will never think about these topics in quite the same way again.” The author of five books of fiction and nonfiction, Schutt received his PhD in zoology from Cornell University and did his post-doctoral work at the American Museum of Natural History (where he was a recipient of a Theodore Roosevelt Grant). His most recent book, Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History, was named a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice and an Amazon Best Book of the Month as well as a Scientific American Recommended Read. He lives with his family on Long Island.

Written with verve and Schutt’s signature wit, weaving evolutionary perspectives with cultural history, Pump shows us this magical and mysterious organ in a completely new light.
