At her consultation visit, Marjorie completed a PHQ-9 (a standardized scale for diagnosing depression – learn more by visiting our FAQ page). At this visit, Marjorie’s score was 21 (severe depression). At her final treatment, she again completed a PHQ-9 and received a score of 2 (none to minimal depression).
I don’t know what week it was, maybe week four. I could tell it was starting to make a difference in my processing of different things. It took a while to recognize these changes… I started to notice my stream of thoughts was slower and there were much less negative things.

While getting the deep TMS treatments, I didn’t feel any side effects. The twenty minutes of treatment was calming and it felt good. People have recognized changes in me through the deep TMS treatment. Especially my wife – she’s happy with what’s going on. I enjoy life for a change – the sunshine, my wife’s smile. I could relate to different things. I would recommend deep TMS treatment to anybody suffering from depression. I think it gives your life back.
I have so much more energy. I have the motivation to do things – hobbies of mine – that I haven’t done forever. It has seriously changed everything. Now, it’s really hard to explain how depressed I was because I can’t even think of it. It’s blown past my mind.
We would try medication for a little and it would help for a little and then I would have side effects that would be as bad and require medication to counter those and then my doctor suggested, “Perhaps you’d like to try deep TMS.” After a couple weeks, I had to fill out a paper on how I was doing and I noticed that, instead of having things that were not well being almost all the time, it started to change. That told me that I’ve really experienced something dramatic. It changed my whole life.
I didn’t have any fear about the treatment, but I was highly skeptical. I didn’t really believe that something that seemed so simple and non-invasive could really work.
It took me until the third week to really understand and accept that the depression was lifting.
And that – deep TMS – was the most transformative thing that’s happened to me in my lifetime. I was getting my mail on a regular basis. I was able to go to a coffee shop and read there and actually talk to people. I began to laugh. It’s been life changing.
Some people get depression to the point where they can’t get out of bed. For me, it was like walking through life, but there’s no color and all that’s playing in the background is funeral music with the saddest songs you can think of. I’ve been on probably every antidepressant that’s been out there. All helped to some extent but never got me to what I’d consider to be normal. My doctor called and said the insurance company would cover deep TMS. After the first couple treatments, I felt a subtle change. I feel different – my cognitive abilities. I go to work. I drive. I read books.
Deep TMS, I think, will help. It’s going to have a huge impact on people’s lives.
