Dr. Berger offers transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy, an innovative treatment for major depressive disorder. NeuroStar TMS Therapy is the first and only non-systemic and non-invasive out-patient depression treatment cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients who have not benefited from prior antidepressant treatment. NeuroStar TMS Therapy uses highly focused, pulsed magnetic fields to stimulate function in targeted brain regions.
The initial treatment course typically consists of at least 5 treatments per week over a 4-6 week period, for an average of 20-30 total treatments. Each session lasts approximately 40 minutes. We will regularly assess with you your status and determine with you the eventual number of treatments.
Please contact our TMS coordinator for upcoming
informational seminars or to schedule a consultation.

“I was a participant of the TMS Program. I have completed my treatments. The one thing I have to say about it is that my first week I took quickly to the treatment. I had a feeling that I haven’t had in a long time. That feeling was to be happy. I haven’t felt happiness in a long time. I suffer from anxiety attacks and depression for a long time. After my treatment I do not have anxiety issues and I’m not as depressed as I once was. I feel more relaxed and calm. Life is not upsetting like it once was. I am able to not let my problems take over my life. I feel calmer and my anxiety issues are less troublesome. Just to feel happy is a plus in itself.”
