Patient Testimonials

With a 66% remission rate, our treatment plan has proven to be a substantial life-changing therapy. During TMS Therapy, patients are awake and alert and can speak with the clinical operator if necessary. After treatment, patients immediately return to normal activities. There are no effects regarding alertness or understanding; patients being treated can drive themselves to and from their treatment sessions.

Patients continually share their stories of depression and improvement with our TMS Director. Each person’s story is unique but they all have one thing in common—the desire to live a life of happiness they thought depression had taken away.
