I went to Dr. Brooks after I was refered to him by my psychiatrist. Dr. Brooks is dedicating his practice to hard to treat depression and pain management patients. He is doing this with Ketamine Infusions, which is now beeing talked about and touted by everyone from NIH to NARSAD. He was patient, kind and gentle with me. As someone who has battled severe depression for my entire adult life, this was both surprising and a relief. The infusions made a tremedous impact in turning my life around. I … Read more
I want to thank you for treating our son. Our last fifteen years have been consumed with worry, and we have gone from one crisis to the next. Nothing has alleviated his suffering, to the point where we would have totally understood if he could not go on. Since his infusions, his life is totally different. He is reporting “great” days at work, where he couldn’t bear to be there before. His affect is completely different. His sense of humor is restored. He is socializing and enjoying it. I could g… Read more
He did what no one else had been able to do. I suffered from childhood molestation and subsequent PTS for three decades. I was hospitalized twice for attempted suicide, received ECT, was on countless failed medications and received years of therapy. Nothing helped my deep depression and anxiety. I was no longer able to work. Just getting out of bed, taking a shower or brushing my teeth became impossible. Thoughts of suicide consumed my life. At the suggesting of my psychiatrist I was referred t… Read more
Dr. Brooks saved my life! Ketamine helped me through drug side effects and pain that was beyond my wildest imagination. He really cared and was there for me like no other physician I have ever met (and I have met many of the best). I am eternally grateful to him and for his pioneering use of ketamine.
Words cannot express just how amazing Pittsburgh Ketamine is. Dr. Macler and Jean gave me peace of mind from the first time I spoke with them. They get it. They understand the urgency of depression. I found this website and reached out to Pittsburgh Ketamine on Friday evening. Within 2 hours I had spoken to Dr. Macler and been offered a chance to set up an appointment for the next morning. My husband had been depressed for the last 15 years. He had been suicidal for the last 3 years and we had n… Read more
I sought ketamine infusion treatment for depression from Dr. Brooks in August 2013. My depression has impaired me for 30 years and rendered me empty, alone, suicidal, and virtually disabled. For me, ketamine works. You cannot imagine the feeling when decades of suffering rapidly drain away. For the first time in my adult life, I feel alive and hopeful for my future. Dr. Brooks is very skilled, very compassionate, and very knowledgeable about the current state of ketamine research. He really enga… Read more
I have suffered from severe drug resistant depression for over 30 years. Despite years of treatment, with every major anti-depressant imaginable, as well as cognitive therapy and any other form of therapy available, I have had little to no relief. A couple of months ago, my psychopharmacologist told me about Ketamine infusions and the reasons he thought it might help my depression. I researched it and called Dr. Brooks. After speaking to him at length, he asked to speak to my doctor. They spoke … Read more
Dr. Brooks is a brilliant, compassionate Dr. who will Revolutionize depression treatment for those who have found nothing helped and were left even worse for going to Psychiatrists for help. Ketamine is a multifaceted treatment which alleviates Physical Pain, Mental Depression and PTSD, and addiction to Painkillers. If it weren’t for him, I may not be alive, and I certainly would only be surviving, not living life in a healthy way. I cannot recommend or repay him enough.
I have not even gone to see Dr. Brooks yet however he blew me away with a returned phone call at 8:30 at night on a holiday! I have been through 14 doctors and six years of RSD/CRPS & Depression! I already feel better just knowing how much he cares when all my doctors have failed me besides my incredible Internist Dr. Greaney at the Murray Hill group who found Dr. Brooks for me! I so look forward to beginning my ketamine infusions so I may get on with my life instead of feeling like I want to en… Read more
I’ve suffered from Complex PTSD for most of my life. I even passionately dedicated my education to focusing on how to help others recover from trauma. I had long ago given up that I would have a day in my life when my thoughts wouldn’t be dominated by my past. My only mechanism to combat it’s effect was to keep studying new ways to conquer it, and to thoroughly examine Empirical data. My conclusion was to try Ketamine infusions. I decided to choose Dr. Glen Brooks after speaking with many other … Read more
