Saved my life

“[Dr. Brooks] did what no one else had been able to do. I was hospitalized twice, received ECT, was on countless failed medications and received years of therapy. Nothing helped my deep depression and anxiety. Dr. Brooks could not be more caring and attentive. He understood my depression and how to treat it. He is the most amazing physician I have ever encountered. He saved my life and I can not thank him enough."

- Nicole, 37

"Suffered [for] over 30 years..."

“I have suffered from severe drug resistant depression for over 30 years. Ketamine infusions have made a significant difference in my life. I feel lighter. The weight has been lifted. I get out of bed instead of hiding all day. I can work consistently and socialize. And…I can say that I am happy; a word that I haven’t used to describe myself
since I don’t know when!”
– Marcia, 72

"The Miracle Worker"

“As a 24 year-old suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, I had almost given up all hope. Thanks to Dr. Brooks’ outstanding treatment of this disorder, I now live pain free! 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!”
– Adam, 34

"Respects His Patients"

“Once again needed to talk to Dr Brooks and with in 10 minutes I had my question answered by him. Don’t know how he does it but as I said before you will never find a Dr who cares and respects his patients. Your family with him not just a another patient. Class act.”

– Jim, 46

"Gift from God!"

“Never due you know, what you may need, and when you may need it. I will only say that Dr, Brooks, and his ENTIRE staff is a gift from God!  Professional, experienced, compassionate  and empowering.  Helping me to get back what I so dearly needed… my sense of self.  Do not hesitate to seek out this treatment if suggested.  Did I say I love the staff!”

-Louis, 61

"I had tried EVERYTHING"

“Dr. Brooks has been treating me for several years & I can only say, he is arguably the most knowledgeable, compassionate, down to earth Dr. I have known.  He is a literal pioneer in ketamine treatment.  Without going into the particulars of my condition, I will only say I had tried EVERYTHING, in vain, for years, at the expense of my wallet & sanity.  I was at the end of my rope.  Ketamine gave me back my peace of mind, my creativity.  I never thought I’d feel normal again.  

Other Dr.s are now trying to cash in on ketamine treatments (which costs cents on the dollar) & charge insane rates.  Brooks charges reasonable rates for treatment.  He is always present for the treatment.  He is knowledgeable about what to do in any situation, unlike other less experienced Dr.s.  I hope everybody gives ketamine the thought & chance it deserves as a treatment option (but do not go to a different Dr. without looking at Brooks first!)  I also tried that & was very unhappy with the outcome.  The other Dr.s were charging insane rates, could not give the attention or time required with treatment, and/or had staff who were not licensed nurses, experimenting on my arm with the catheter.  

I hope other Dr.s, researchers, and the media stop their judgemental views on ketamine being a “club drug” with no other uses than to “get high.” Many substances on this earth can be medicinal in the right context and the right dosage.”

-Christina, 41

"Reborn"

“Great center. Great treatment! I was reborn thanks to Dr. Brooks”

-Realia Montero, 29

"Compassion equals his Brilliance"

“Dr. Brooks is a doctor whose compassion equals his brilliance in treating his patients. I receive ketamine infusions for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), and they are an incredible help in knocking the unrelenting pain down to a level where I not only increase functionality, but can also enjoy life again. I highly  recommend this treatment and this doctor. In addition, the office & nursing staff are professional, helpful, and empathic. The treatment area is comfortable, and I feel completely safe throughout my treatment, as I know I’m in excellent hands.”

-Corrine, 49

"Must See Him"

“The best doctor in the tri-state area, and I’ve had countless medical problems, yet he has the best of both in the rare combination of a physician.  Compassion and an encyclopedic knowledge of medicine.  If you are having depression and oral medications don’t work, you must see him.”

-Michael, 44

"A True Life Saver"

“Dr. Brooks is the best. He has helped me when many others have failed. Extremely knowledgeable and caring. A true life saver.”

-Michael, 61
