Patient Testimonials

Dear Dr. Rao,

Following is my testimonial regarding Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy:

I am a long time victim of depression for over 50 years. I started seeking help at the age of 50, now 66 years old. During the past 16 years I have tried numerous medications, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), biofeedback, visualization and imagery. At the end of 2012, I began TMS treatment under Dr. Peter Rao. Each of the 30 sessions lasted a little over 40 minutes. I was skeptical of the treatment and almost gave up after the 2nd treatment. But I stuck with the schedule. Within two weeks (10 sessions) I started noticing a difference in the way I felt and thought. By the end of the 4th week, my friends commented: a much more enjoyable person, less agitated, more focused, more confident and friendly. At the end of the treatment, I considered myself in remission of depression. It's been over six months since my last session and its effects continue to work.

Near the end of the therapy, I noticed a difference. 2 months later I realized it had helped. It felt like 50 lbs off of my shoulders. More energy, hope, the possibility of recovering from my current dilemma.

I've already gotten so used to living a depression free life since receiving treatment, it's easy to take it for granted, but it's like colors are vibrant again, rather than dull. It's easier to mentally resolve problems.
