About Limbic Medical

Data-Driven, Patient-Centered Care



At Limbic Medical we have a mission to provide transformative solutions to relieve suffering and achieve a balanced state of being. With our unique, integrative focus we investigate the underlying factors of pain, addiction, and mood disorders to customize an innovative whole-body approach.

If you are looking for relief from depression, treatment-resistant depression, postpartum depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain, or other chronic medical condition – you’ve come to the right place.

Our patients commend the quality of care and attention they receive. Dr Atoian draws from deep expertise in anesthesiology, pain management, addiction medicine, and mood disorders to deliver a care plan uniquely tailored to each patient’s needs. Patients receive innovative treatment approaches that deliver outstanding results, helping them feel better than they have felt in years and find the peace they’ve been searching for.

We integrate multiple treatment methods under one roof, such as ketamine infusions, hydration and vitamin therapies, at-home ketamine microdosing, and functional medicine. Instead of a standard, pre-printed treatment plan, the needs and circumstances of patients at Limbic Medical are carefully considered and crucial to the holistic care we provide.

Welcome to your healing home.


Dr. Atoian is board certified in anesthesiology and addiction medicine and is also the founder and medical director of Perioperative Care Consultants and Ketamine Specialists. By focusing on the intersection of these practices—anesthesiology, pain management, addiction medicine, and mood disorders—Dr. Atoian created Limbic Medical.

From the operating room to the living room, Dr. Atoian integrates his operating room experience with at-home patient engagement to produce data-driven, patient-centered care that goes beyond pain and addiction.

Dr. Atoian specializes in ketamine-based therapies for mood disorders, ultrasound-guided interventional procedures, and opioid-free pain management. He created a comprehensive anesthesia-assisted opioid detoxification and pain management protocol for patients suffering from complex chronic pain and opioid dependency.

His interests in treating depression and pain began with his undergraduate career at the prestigious College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he studied neuropsychopharmacology and the interaction between depression and pain. While at UCSB, Dr. Atoian received a National Science Foundation grant for his approach to identifying novel pain medicines.

Dr. Atoian completed medical school at the Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and completed his residency training in anesthesiology at the Keck School of Medicine at USC, where he was trained specifically on the use of ketamine infusions for depression and pain.

With over a decade of experience and thousands of patients successfully treated, Dr. Atoian’s unique background gives him the skills and knowledge to safely empower patients to take back control of their lives.


Dr. Atoian is really the best. I was having a really hard time with my depression that wouldn’t go away, even taking medications. I did the infusions and now I’m doing microdosing and I feel great! My anxiety is much better and my depression is pretty much gone.

Dr. Atoian takes his job seriously and believes deeply in what he is providing for his patients. After 6 infusions I feel so much better. I made an 80% improvement in my depressive symptoms. I can’t say enough about how much better I’m feeling.
