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 end it !

I’ve never met a physician with more patience, compassion and attentiveness than Dr. Brooks. He’s remarkable.

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 never had anyone who had reacted so quickly and efficiently. We had tried everything… medications, hospitalizations, outpatient behavioral therapy programs, genetic testing, electroconvulsive therapy…and the list goes on. We had been told that we had to just ¨wait it out¨, there was nothing left for him to try. I was convinced that it was no longer ¨if¨ he would commit suicide, but ¨when¨. I was afraid to go home from work and find him dead. All of that has changed, we spent the week after Christmas with Dr. Macler and by the New Year his depression was gone. No suicidal thoughts, no inability to get out of bed, no deep sadness in his eyes, every symptom of his depression was gone. He was light-hearted and fun! He was motivated and happy. He was healthy. Since the first set of treatments life is unrecognizable from before. Dr. Macler and his wife gave us our life back. We were surviving the day…now we are living our life. Thank you Dr. Macler! Thank you Jean!

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.

As a 24 year old suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, I had almost given up all hope of living a pain free life. Thanks to Dr. Brooks’ outstanding treatment of this disorder, I now live pain free! I am back to school, back to work, and back to life again. Dr. Brooks cares so much about his patients. I now refer to him as “The Miracle Worker.” I don’t know where I would be if it was not for NY Ketamine Infusions. Thanks, Dr. Brooks!

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 engaged with me, and gave me unlimited time to ask all my questions. His manner is friendly and professional, and his focus on precision and safety instills confidence. As ketamine treatment becomes more widespread, Dr. Brooks’ should serve as a role model for other doctors.

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 was both shocked and affraid to talk about it— out of fear that I would jink myself. Anyone, who has suffered from drug resistant depression, will relate. Once you see the light again, you’re affraid that it will go away. It hasn’t. If you are spending money on doctors for therapy and medication and not getting better, give this man a call. His office is located in Midtown Manhattan. You won’t regret it.

We can not be more grateful to Pittsburgh Ketamine. Dr. Macler has been with us every step. I can not explain how supported we felt throughout this treatment. The Doctor and staff stood by us every step of the way. For my daughter, it works. She has tried every horrible treatment and every drug out there. We are so HAPPY we found this treatment and we found this practice close enough for us to get the help that works for us. Thank you so much Dr. Macler!

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 physicians offering the same services. He spent more time on the phone listening to me, and I felt he had more empathy. I was right.
My experience with Dr. Brooks, and the Ketamine infusions (I did a series of six) was fantastic. I had the same zest for life as I did as a young child! I will say that Ketamine therapy is not something to take lightly, you are reprogramming your brain; therefore in my opinion, the Physician involved in your treatment is as important as the infusion. The care and compassion that Dr. Brooks brought to my experience was as important as the treatment. He has a very empathetic and calming affect and most importantly LISTENS to his patients to tailor the treatment to the patient. Plus, he doesn’t overcharge. All in all, I highly recommend him! He is a fantastic Physician and person!

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.
