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!

Ketamine treatment has been life saving! This was my last hope. After 30 years of sinking despite everything else (40+ meds in all possible combinations, 14 or so inpatient stays, Electroconvulsive therapy treatments) and none of these methods were effective.

I have been brought back from the grave with the infusions. I’d like to make a point of saying that my personal experience was my that my progress had been jagged for a spell but to date I feel better than I’ve ever felt since onset of illness during childhood.

Dr. Macler, Jean-his wife and partner at the clinic and nurse Kerry are amazing… knowledgeable and truly compassionate . I have the deepest respect and gratitude for them. It is an absolute privilege to receive care from here.

I’ve never met a physician with more patience, compassion and attentiveness than Dr. Brooks at NY Ketamine Infusions. 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!

My experience with Dr. Macler may be the best I’ve ever had with any healthcare professional! He is incredibly kind and great to listen and respond promptly to any questions or concerns, and my first two treatments were an absolute breeze thanks to how comfortable his office is, not to mention his awesome staff. My fiance, who was very skeptical of this treatment, is now completely supportive of it now that he has met Dr. Macler’s team at Pittsburgh Ketamine. It is so obvious that they are truly concerned about the well-being of their patients from the moment you contact them about treatment. I really can’t recommend them enough, and I am excited to continue my relationship with them for further treatments :)

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.

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!

My, yes, my Pittsburgh Ketamine family is absolutely awesome and life-saving. While not at the feeling amazing level yet, I feel it is an attainable goal. And, I had a very embarrassing accident recently. I called the office and they made me feel so comfortable; they were very accommodating and I highly, highly recommend Dr. Macler & his staff (family). Thank you so very much for not making me feel like a fool. Love you guys

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!!!!!
