What Our Patients Say

The treatment was so much more comfortable than I thought it would be. I experienced slight discomfort during the first two treatments, but it was smooth sailing from then on!


Before starting TMS, I was so depressed that I couldn’t eat, sleep or get out of bed. I had stopped doing the things I enjoyed entirely, because I didn’t have the energy or interest. It took a few weeks, but I started to notice myself thinking more positively and it kept improving from there. Thank you, Dr. Cohen!


My depression improved dramatically throughout the course of my TMS treatment. I am finally able to sleep through the night and am looking forward to living my life again. My entire family noticed the difference in me before I did. TMS changed my life after decades of failed medications and terrible side effects. I finally feel like “me” again.


Dr. Cohen and his team are so fantastic! They did everything they could to make me feel comfortable, and I started feeling better after the first dose of Ketamine!

Verified Patient

I am so thankful to Dr. Cohen and his team! Thanks to them and the Ketamine treatment, I’m feeling better than I have in years. I was pleasantly surprised that there were no side effects.


The suite in which I received the treatment was comfortable and welcoming. I was able to relax during the treatments and each time I left, I felt more at peace.
