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 to Dr. Brooks. I had never experienced such empathy and understanding of my my condition. He listened, then explained in simple English how ketamine therapy was different in that it actually helped repair the damage to my brain that resulted from my childhood trauma. My first ketamine infusion took 45 mins. There was a mild but pleasant dissociation that took place. Within 8 hours I began to feel a lightening and decrease in the dread that was my life. By the next day I experienced a peace I had never felt before. I was smiling and had hope. A fog had been lifted. I had an additional recommended 5 infusions within the next 10 days and am now on a maintenance program where I return for a single “booster” infusion every couple of months. Dr. Brooks could not be more caring and attentive. He understood my depression and how to treat it. Every patient has his cell number and 24/7 access to him. He is the most amazing physician I have ever encountered. He saved my life and I can not thank him enough.
