TMS Testimonials

"I found Hillside TMS when looking for a psychiatrist who provides TMS on Google. What stood out to me the most was the genuine warmth from Dr. Itteera and her incredible assistants Daniel and Miles. Before TMS, I was depressed, anxious, had a lack of motivation, could not stop oversleeping, had a lot of brain fog, was angry/irritable about specific things. After TMS treatment, I have noticed that I look forward to doing things and I am able to do more things again, now that my depressive symptoms have decreased. I am content and able to drive which was an issue I was having and I am once again making plans to keep myself busy. What surprised me the most about Hillside TMS is how personal."

Magstim TMS Testimonials

At first I thought that this treatment was just the “same old, same old.” In fact, it turned out to be a very relaxing time which I am now trying to duplicate at home as part of a regular morning routine. I always felt that the staff were there to support me completely through follow-up sessions and trying to make me comfortable. TMS exceeded my wildest expectations. Almost immediately the world looked bright and new. I so appreciate the opportunity to find a very different world and life. – Tim A.

I was severely depressed over a period of three years. I tried several antidepressants but nothing really seemed to work. I had a severe allergic reaction. 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. It could actually get better and that I had more to look forward to. – Garret A.

During that time, it was probably the darkest time in my life. I was sad and miserable all the time. Before when I was going through depression, I felt hopeless. Since TMS, my perspective on life has been so positive that I know there is hope. – Martha F.
