Dr. Frederick’s Clinic is the first of many established ketamine clinics that we intend to acquire and rebrand under the Revitalist platform.”
Dr. Randy Frederick, founder of the Richmond, Virginia Clinic, commented: “I am excited for the opportunity to bring my clinic and skillset to Revitalist. I plan on utilizing my experience in the
