TMS Patient Testimonials
“I was severely depressed over a period of three years. I tried several antidepressants but nothing really seemed to work. My family was very poorly impacted by the whole problem of my depression. By the end of the TMS treatment, things were better than I could have imagined. After that sixth week, I was so excited that my life was starting to resume and that I had more to look forward to.” -Garret A.
“I was one of those people who was just about at my “wits end” trying to get help for severe depression. Here I was in my early 60s and had been struggling with depression since I was 12. I, somehow, managed to “deal” with it throughout the years until I reached my 50s and it gradually became worse and worse. After trying a multitude of antidepressants and various depression aiding modalities I finally searched with a “vengeance” for the newest, latest and most researched types of help that I could find. It took a fairly aggressive treatment of TMS but I am here to tell you it worked. No one could be more doubtful and cynical that I but, somehow, I held on to that one last ray of hope. I would say to anyone who is struggling with depression to please don’t give up. There really is help out there.” –Ann M.
“I’ve been on and off various medications at various doses for about 18 years. They’ve had various levels of effectiveness, less so over time. It becomes a battle with being miserable from side effects or being miserable because I’m not on enough medication. Something had to change. When I learned about TMS online, I asked my social network if anyone had tried it and one good friend said she had. It was easy to tell when because her life took a dramatic shift upward. I had read the stats (about 72% success), but hearing it from someone I knew was more reassuring. And if it didn’t work, at least my insurance covers most of the cost so I didn’t have a ton to lose. So here I am, 7 weeks in and it’s night and day. For me, it hit the 4th week when I had a good day and then another and another… People are noticing the change in me. But most importantly I’m noticing the change myself.” –Larry V.
“I struggled to go to work and could hardly wait to get home. At home, I sat on the couch for hours, unable to do much at all. Going to work wiped out all my physical and mental energy. I spent weekends on the couch in front of the TV. I just couldn’t work up the energy to do anything. I was like this for 2 years. My negative thoughts consumed me. After TMS, I have felt such a positive change! I have spent an entire day working in my yard, or doing things around the house. I come home after work and find myself busy and occupied – having the energy to do whatever I need to do. I want to get up off the couch. I’m able to push away the negative thoughts completely. I function better at work, spend time with friends, pursue my favorite hobbies and only sit on the couch when I want to.” –Michelle S.
“I’ve been clinically depressed 3-4 times, each time lasting 2-3 years. After I read some of the literature including the testimonials I decided to try TMS Therapy. After about the second week of treatment I left the office feeling uplifted. The feeling remained and I started to feel better. I also didn’t get so concerned with stressful events and I worried less. It has been a year since my treatments and I can say I am no longer depressed. Previously, I was taking several different medications just to get some kind of relief. With TMS, I saw beneficial effects quicker than the medications and counseling – and there weren’t really side effects.” -Ryan C.
“Before starting TMS therapy, I’d been on varying combinations of six different medications, and none of them helped my depression at all. Life felt entirely unmanageable. Taking a shower or fixing a glass of ice water seemed like so much effort that just the thought would reduce me to tears. After discovering TMS, my family strongly encouraged me to invest in the chance of recovery and I started a 6-week series of daily TMS treatments. The process was slow, but by the end of my daily treatments, my life had changed drastically. I was able to stop taking the medications that had been causing so many side effects. I could deal with everyday tasks and activities again. Instead of crying because I needed to pour myself a glass of water, I could cook dinner, or even bake cookies just for fun. Today, life feels manageable again. TMS has made a significant, measurable difference for me. It’s been worth the investment to have my life back.” -Karla T.
