What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain in order to improve the symptoms of depression. It is our goal to provide access to effective and cutting-edge treatments.
NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) is an innovative, FDA-cleared therapy for adults 18 to 70 years of age that can help people who struggle with Major Depressive Disorder.
It is not electroconvulsive therapy. It helps activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters using a non-invasive magnetic field. Precisely targeted NeuroStar Advanced Therapy makes long-term remission possible.
Many insurance companies have established medical coverage policies for TMS Therapy and our team can review any specific questions you may have regarding coverage.
How does it work?
Transcranial magnetic stimulation uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field similar to what is used in an MRI. Patients are awake and alert during treatment and can resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment. It is an in-office treatment that takes 19 to 37 minutes and is administered 5 days a week, for approximately 4-6 weeks.

I have experienced years and years of depression. Five times I was admitted to mental facilities. Occasionally medicine would help temporarily, but the dark veil of depression was always present. Thoughts of suicide went through my mind often, and at times, seemed like the only way to get relief from the heavy weight of depression. Dr. Toledo suggested TMS Therapy for me. At the end of the treatments I could feel the darkness and depression lifting away.
To all the special people at Elite DNA Therapy Services, I just wanted to say how pleased I am with all the people I had contact with during my treatment. The doctor was kind and caring, Rose was a sweetheart and very efficient, but my technician Jay was outstanding! She’d made it a pleasure to come in and let the woodpecker do its job by his sweet disposition and good work ethic. I feel I was greatly encouraged with my treatment and would recommend it to others.
