Questions about TMS?
With medication, it just got to the point where the side effects outweighed the benefits. TMS worked better than any medication with no side effects; that was the biggest plus.
I completed 30 TMS sessions and I now feel more balanced, happy, and productive. I am back to being my gregarious self! My mind and memory are sharper. I'm up by 7:00 am every day and back to leading a happy, productive life!
After completing TMS, I feel much more hopeful and positive... I am now able to complete more tasks and my anxiety has decreased dramatically. I got my life back.
Since I have begun treatment I noticed changes almost immediately. I have stopped taking my anxiety meds and my feelings of anxiety and depression are almost gone. Colleagues have commented on my calm demeanor and noticed a difference since I have started treatment. Staff at the Columbus Circle office are very professional, warm welcoming and always concerned for my overall well being. They have walked me through the entire process and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way.

TMS allowed me to continue with my life with little disruption to my daily activities. I began to notice a change during the fourth week of treatment. I began to get a handle on my thoughts. I have been able to live again and life has become enjoyable for me.
TMS Therapy came along at the perfect time because I started to feel like my options were running out. After about a week and a half I really started to feel different. I felt like I was alive - like the veil had been taken off of my eyes. I want to see people, and don't want to be by myself like I used to.
By the end of the TMS treatment, things were better than I could have imagined. After six weeks, I was so excited that my life was starting to resume. It could actually get better and that I had more to look forward to.
My name is DC and I was misdiagnosed with Bipolar disorder for 5 years and in that span of time I was put on 15 different medications. After completing TMS I feel like I am born anew and this treatment is truly a miracle procedure. For the first time in my life I am able to think clearly and articulate what it is I am thinking. When I am speaking I am able to communicate clearly what I am feeling and I can construct my sentences with a positive nature, confidence, and a sense of clarity I didn't have before. My feelings are natural and genuine and I literally feel like a section of my brain has been activated. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who has been debilitated from major depression.
The Staff at Paramus TMS is a huge reason to the success of this treatment. Not only was I being treated by a revolutionary procedure I was also under the care of so many amazing people who actually care about the well being of their patients. Lisa was the person who oversaw the treatment and she was always giving me positive reinforcement and was a true friend through the process. I can't thank her and the staff enough for being there for me as one of my biggest support systems. They would listen to me and talk with me with compassion and generosity that you don't find very often. Without out the kindness and love of this staff the procedure could have been a lot different; but, I am blessed to have been under the care of these people and I can not thank them enough for leading me on a path to success.
I had reached out to TMSCOA around late Spring of 2017, due my gloomy and weary depression. It was an especially difficult time, due to the fact that I was getting through losing my beloved mom to an ugly battle with pancreatic cancer. I am diagnosed with clinical depression and have been in treatment since the 1980's. The different doctors prescribed medications, but they seemed to be helping only somewhat. Now with the wonderful help of my TMS treatments, my future perspective and outlook is much brighter. The very professional TMS technician Alecia P. treated and helped me as if I were part of her biological family. Her amazing patience in reference to my life-long mishandling of our big time clock has amazed me. She's listened to so many of my tales of woe and past regrets. She has listened, shared, and made such supportive suggestions, I will feel forever indebted to her. Another technician named Aysha has always shown outstanding and sincere care, and has stepped up at any point the aforementioned Alecia couldn't be available (aka incredible teamwork)! Drs.’ AK and S. Savatta were oh-so helpful to me. I could bring the deepest questions to them, even at a moments notice, and they would be there to answer me. Even simply returning my nervous, personal phone calls. May I also thankfully commend TMSCOA's headquarters phone staff on continually fielding any needed current messages for me with concerned warmth.
