“Recent data suggest that ketamine, given intravenously, might be the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades.”

If you are visiting this website, you or someone you love are most likely dealing with a Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) that has not responded to other medication. Many of you will have tried several SSRIs, SNRIs, Tricyclic or MAOI antidepressants, or even antipsychotic medications. Some of you have undergone ECT and/or TMS with no significant improvement. Chances are that you can no longer function effectively at home, work or school, and find even small tasks — like showering or getting out of bed — insurmountable.
What you are feeling is not simply the short-lived result of one of life’s disappointments.
Severe depression, or MDD, is something quite different, and is more likely associated with feelings of intense sadness, low self-worth, and even thoughts of self-harm or suicide.
This is where NY Ketamine Infusions can help. Numerous studies at world-renowned institutions and 11+ years worth of treatment experience in our offices show that safe, low-dose ketamine infusions alleviate suffering in over 84% of our patients. And unlike other anti-depressant medication, which can take 6-8 weeks to take effect, ketamine can begin to work quickly, sometimes after just one or two treatments. Nearly 5,000+ patients thus far have experienced some form of relief from Dr. Brooks’ unique, next-level protocols and compassionate, personalized care.
We are very focused on outcomes and are proud to report that 84% of our patients with treatment-resistant depression experienced noteworthy or significant improvement in their symptoms after undergoing ketamine therapy according to our OutcomeMD patient survey data (based on 2,200+ patients seen since Jan. 2022).

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, depression affects 1 in 15 adults (6.7%) annually and roughly 16.6% at some point in their life.
Common symptoms include:
Loss of interest or pleasure in activities once enjoyed
Changes in appetite
Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
Loss of energy / increased fatigue
Increase in purposeless physical activity like hand-wringing or pacing, or slowed movements and speech
Feeling worthless or guilty
Difficulty thinking, concentrating or making decisions
Thoughts of death or suicide
Anxiety disorders also respond well to ketamine infusion therapy. Generalized anxiety is often brought on by stress and trauma and can lead to feelings of panic, heart palpitations, nausea, loss of appetite, or even a fear of dying. If you experience symptoms for a period of six months or more, you should seek a diagnosis for generalized anxiety or panic disorder.
Anxiety disorders should always be treated in order to avoid worsening of symptoms or related disorders, such as depression.
