Our Story

About Us

The Michigan Progressive Health team is passionate about helping all of our patients alleviate their pain and suffering. At MPH, Dr. Megan Oxley MD has built a ketamine practice on two important principles: to provide medical relief for those struggling with problems that can often be improved with a ketamine therapy regimen and, to provide superior medical attention in a safe, clean and well-appointed facility. We want the MPH clinic to feel more like home and less a doctor’s office.

The Problem

Seeking Relief

Individuals struggling with anxiety, addiction or mood disorders are often plagued with the overwhelming feeling that they will never feel better, that there is no hope. Too many patients are forced to take prescription medications for their ailments – from depression to PTSD, chronic pain to anxiety, from addiction to migraines. Those patients are often not getting the relief they need or deserve. Having tried countless options or various forms of help, improvement can be short-lived, and patients can end up right back where they started. Just “getting by” is neither a desirable nor sustainable solution for anyone, and many medications can be fruitless and even lead to addiction or worse.

What is Normal?

Our Solution

Dr. Oxley first witnessed this never-ending cycle in the emergency department. She discovered that patients labeled as “drug-seekers” were really just seeking relief and that many mental illness patients were not getting the care they wanted and deserved.   In trying to help a close friend out of that very same cycle, Dr. Oxley turned to ketamine to help patients with chronic pain and migraines. As she continued to research this medication more, she learned how ketamine could help not only physical pain, but mental pain as well. The more passionate Dr. Oxley became about alleviating suffering in these difficult to treat patients, the more convinced Dr. Oxley became that ketamine could be the answer.

What Sets Us Apart

Enduring Dedication

Dr. Oxley sets herself apart from her peers with a keen dedication to putting the needs of the patients first, providing the very best care for a diverse range of ketamine patients. Not only do 70-80% of patients who are treated with ketamine experience significant relief from their symptoms, a great many of them are able to fully participate in their own lives again. Determined to provide this leading edge treatment for those who are genuinely in need, Dr. Oxley opened Michigan Progressive Health, a clinic dedicated to safe, comfortable, convenient and discreet ketamine therapy for patients who need it. She has since witnessed family, friends and patients from all walks of life who have benefitted from ketamine infusion therapy, making it possible for those individuals to get back to living normal, daily lives.

Michigan Progressive Health will help you get your life track.

MPH Helps You Live Life to Your Full Potential.
