Does it work?
Yes! Our TMS remission rate at Carolina Partners is 52.4%, and our response rate is approximately 2/3 of patients. Compare this to the medication-based STAR-D trial for similar patients, which has only a 6.9% remission rate, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with our outcomes.

Many people who suffer from depression find medication ineffective. TMS therapy offers an alternative to anti-depressants which can cause many side-effects. A typical TMS treatment plan runs 4-6 weeks with a 37 minute treament 5 days a week. Many patients come in over their lunch break – it’s that easy!
We are happy to answer any questions you may have about TMS therapy. Please call our TMS coordinator to set up a consultation:
