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 and then I then made an appointment to receive my first infusion. The Ketamine infusions have made a significant difference in my life. I feel lighter, the weight has been lifted. The fog is gone! I get out of bed, instead of hiding there all day. I can work consistently and socialize. I want to explore my community and the world. And…I can say that I am happy; a word that I haven’??t used to describe myself since I don’??t know when! Dr. Brooks has been unbelievable! He is supportive, informative and available to answer any and all of my questions. He understands the toll depression takes on it’s victims. He is compassionate and kind. Prior to working with Ketamine, Dr. Brooks worked with drug addicts in detox. I believe the negative reviews are from patients who were unable to stay clean. I say this because I have met several patients receiving help for depression and pain at his office. They all feel the same way I do about Dr. Brooks. This Is Not About Money For Him!!! It’s About Saving Lives!!!!!

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 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.

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.

Dr. Macler was extremely knowledgeable about the procedure. He take his patients comfortability to heart and he really cares, so does Nurse Kerry, and Jean. They made me feel at home. I would recommend them to anyone, even my family. Pittsburgh Ketamine is a top notch practice with top notch people.

I can’t remember when I first met Dr. Brooks who I call my angel but it was after I got Conplex Regional Pain Syndrome in January of 2015. Dr. Brooks has been the only one to help me when I’ve been screaming in pain to other doctors who just look at me like I’m crazy from being in so much pain. Dr. Brooks’s not only understood, he helped me more than anybody in my entire life has. It’s very important who gives you the ketamine infusion. Dr. Brooks in my eyes is the only one that qualifies. He is commpassionate, empathetic, and even has a great sense of humor. If your hurting and no one is hearing you I am telling you to call my angel Dr. Brooks and he will heal you.

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