Testimonials

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!

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.

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

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.

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 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.

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!!!!!

Marcia

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!
