Time For TMS

Welcome to Beaches TMS & Brain Health

We understand that depression and treatment resistant conditions are complex medical problems.

Some of our patients are  currently working with other mental health providers including: psychiatrists, psychologists,  and mental health counselors. Many mental health providers have referred patients to our clinic because they have witnessed the improvement, and in many cases, remissions with our treatment approaches. We have been able to temporarily assist patients with our services and allow them to continue their treatments plans with their providers long term.
Some of our other patients are self referred or are currently seeing their primary care physician. These patients often need medication reevaluation, psychotherapy, and an adequate tms protocol.

At Beaches TMS & Brain Health we are dedicated to helping patients suffering from treatment resistant mental health conditions that have not been helped by traditional medication management.
