What is the success rate of TMS therapy?

As with any medical treatment or therapy, we cannot guarantee results. Still, TMS therapy has very few side effects compared to antidepressants and should definitely be considered before pursuing more intensive treatments such as Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT), which has moderate to severe side effects. Ongoing research has shown that at least 50% of TMS patients have experienced significant improvement in their symptoms after a full TMS course of treatment.

Is TMS right for me?

TMS therapy may be right for you if you’ve tried multiple forms of antidepressants and psychotherapy with little or no improvement. If curious, please consult your doctor to discuss the possibility of TMS as a treatment option. Please also call or contact us to talk more about your suitability for TMS.

How do I take the first step?

The first step is to call us at 212-335-2100 or email us at to make an appointment with one of our clinicians. If we think you’re a candidate for TMS therapy, we will call your insurance company to verify that you are covered for TMS. Once we communicate with your insurance, we can make an appointment for your TMS evaluation.
