Jason Geis, a retired Sergeant Major in the U.S. Military, is a leader in the veteran community.

He is a flight leader for the Kern County Honor Flight, executive director for the Portrait of a Warrior Gallery and a founding member of Wounded Heroes Fund.

For nearly 21 years, he served as a Surgeon Sergeant Major in the U.S. Army, where he was in charge of training over 21,000 paratroopers. He also served in Iraq and in several overseas humanitarian and peacekeeping operations.

But one of his biggest battles he’s facing today is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Through the recommended six treatments of Ketamine infusions, Geis says the treatment was successful and he was able to find a sense of peace he hasn’t felt in 21 years.

Geis says the treatment really worked for him and shared his final thoughts including advice for those interested in the treatment. 

Before each session to observe and record the changes the treatment has on each patient, Dr. Trobisch asks each person to fill out a PTSD Symptom Scale (PSS).

According to Moreno, a score 13 and above means you are dealing with PTSD. Within six treatments Geis’s score went from a 35, which is severe PTSD, to a 13.
