NeuroStar TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is an extremely safe and effective non-drug treatment for depression that was cleared by the FDA in 2008. Approximately 20,000 patients have received NeuroStar TMS Therapy in the U.S. at over 500 locations.
We are glad to inform patients, colleagues, and health care providers that several medical insurance companies (United, Humana, Anthem BCBS, GEHA, etc.) now provide coverage benefits for NeuroStar TMS treatment. Even if your medical insurance is one of the few that still do not cover TMS, we can help you present and appeal your case. Please contact us for additional information.
Even patients who have suffered for decades with depression can achieve success with TMS. Treatment-Resistant Patients are approximately 5 times more likely to achieve remission with TMS than with additional medication trials. TMS has been effective even for patients who have previously undergone ECT.

Martha Rhodes is a wife, mother and author. She is a depression patient treated with NeuroStar TMS Therapy. This is her story, we sincerely hope it will help you.
Martha struggled with depression for over thirty years before she was exposed to and treated with NeuroStar TMS Therapy. Before that, she had to deal with the side effects of medication therapy.
In her case, these side effects included numbness, disconnection from family and her environment, and weight increase. As it usually happens, medication worked for a while and then the effect dissipated and side effects kicked in. Her treatment was intense and effective. She understood an important aspect of TMS Therapy: It is a slow, marathon-like process that works!
Watch the video and listen to her talk about how the dark hopeless feeling lifted and disappeared from her life. This is what depression patients call "the fog", the "dark cloud", the "dark room". In a few weeks her life was changed...
TMS worked for Martha, and it could work for you or your loved one too. TMS Therapy is the best chance for long-lasting remission.
