Family Member Quote
“Having a daughter who has suffered from the vicious cycle of depression and anxiety for most of her life, my eyes were always open to anything I think might help her. My daughter had heard about ketamine infusions for depression and spoke to a few people who have tried it and had excellent results. We decided to give it a try and researched where it was done in New York. We came across Dr. Glen Brooks who sat with us for a generous amount of time. He listened, he asked questions, and had great patience in explaining all the details and what to expect. I am beyond happy to say that my daughter feels like a new person and is making strides in the life she deserves. Seeing is believing….it worked.”
