Coming to Pittsburgh Ketamine for my grandson’s treatment was the best thing that has happened for our family. My grandson has been bipolar for years and possibly from birth. He talked about committing suicide so many times, I had reached the point that I knew I would find him dead one day. Life was literally overwhelming for our family.
But you, your wife, and the treatment saved his life. He told me after we returned home that he had never been as happy, not even as a child. Before the treatment, he would barely leave his condo even to go to lunch with me. We noticed even before he completed the treatment, that it was like living with a different person. We went to 3 museums and the Frank Lloyd Wright house while in Pittsburg for the treatment, and he really enjoyed it. He has now found a job for the first time in his life and met a really nice girl. Continuing on the medicine in pill form has been another blessing.
I cannot thank you enough for making this treatment available to those who need it.

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.

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’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!

I can not say enough about Dr. Macler, Jean, and Kerri at Pittsburgh Ketamine. They truly care about their patients and he made sure to address every question we had before starting any treatment plan. You will not find a more knowledgeable or compassionate group of people in my opinion.

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 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 go on and on. The point is, he has a life, and a happy one, and we are adjusting to a life free of dire worry. We thank you from the very bottom of our hearts for restoring our son to us and to his wife, who is in a state of amazement. The work you are doing is so important. Thank you.

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!

Dr. Macler saved my life. He and his staff are absolutely amazing! I had been on the hamster wheel of anti-psychotics, anti-convulsants, you name it. Nothing helped. I found Dr. Macler and my life has improved exponentially. Thank you so very much Dr. Macler and family; because they treat you like family. They truly are concerned with your well-being and are completely non-judgemental, which has not been my experience with many healthcare professionals. I will continue on my path to wellness with Dr. Macler. No question about it. Thank you for making this treatment available, for thinking and doing outside the box and most of all for your compassion.

Dr. Macler and his staff at Pittsburgh Ketamine changed my life forever! Words cannot express the gratitude I have for him and the treatment I received! When I was 16, I began to notice that I was becoming generally unhappy with my life. Being an honors student who was involved in many extracurricular activities and who loved being social, my mood began to severely decline in my last years of high school. I had a bright future ahead of me; attending a great college after graduation, loving parents, many supportive friends, and so much ambition to create a wonderful future for myself, I found myself not thinking so positively about my future anymore. With a high genetic predisposition for severe depression and anxiety, these mental illnesses began to rear their ugly heads when I began college. I hit rock bottom at 25 and knew that I needed to desperately seek help. After seeing multiple therapists, psychiatrists, and being placed on a number of different medications throughout the years, my mood seemed to be remaining stagnant in a state of depression.
After doing some research, my mother came across the Pittsburgh Ketamine Clinic. I was very sceptical at first about the treatments because nothing I had tried in the past 10 years had seemed to work. My social anxiety, depression, and OCD was at its peak and my life seemed very hopeless. Dr. Macler and his wife, Jean were so helpful in making this process as painless and smooth as possible for myself and my family. My parents noticed an improvement in my mood after the second treatment! After my third treatment, I had an emotional breakdown and cried with tears of joy because I hadn’t felt so happy about life in over 10 years! After my sixth and final treatment, I can honestly say that these ketamine treatments have saved my life! I never thought in a million years that I could be this happy again! No longer am I terrified to go out in public and be social, no longer do I cry for days on end because I feel “alone,” no longer do I overanalyze situations to the point that I have panic attacks, and no longer do I see my future as bleak and hopeless. I still have “bad days,” but I have learned how to cope with them. They are no longer bad MONTHS! I am so grateful for Dr. Macler, Jean, and Kerry for their patience, understanding, their intense care, and willingness to help provide a better life for me. These people have truly impacted MY life and the lives of my family members in ways they will never realize. Thank you so much Dr. Macler, Jean, and Kerry, for all that you have done for me and for helping me love living my life again!
