WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY
I just want to thank the doctors here for introducing me to TMS. I had years of struggling with depression with very little relief constant side effect to antidepressants years of treatment failures. I can honestly say TMS has changed my life for the better.
I recently have underwent treatment for TMS. It has helped me to be calmer and not have as much anxiety. Stressful situations have rose an I’m much better dealing with it. i recommend this non invasive treatment and am happy I tried it.
My son has been getting TMS for being unfocused, anxious and depressed since medication wasn’t working for him. I found TMS has really helped him be focused and rid him of his depression and less anxious.
I have benefitted from TMS myself that I did at the office and would recommend to anyone.
I’m writing this review to try to help others as I don’t normally do these things. But I had to tell people about this great new procedure call TMS. I’m in the process of getting the treatment and after only 2 weeks i’m already noticing big changes in my depressive symptoms. So I hope this helps someone else. Lookin forward to my completing in 4 weeks. Here’s to my new life !!!
