“I was not me. Depression and Medication always altered me. But in 30 treatments of TMS I reached remission from depression. I never was able to get to this point with medications or other therapies.” -Fred S
“I believe that we should never keep compliments for others to ourselves. I must compliment the entire staff at the Institute For Advanced Psychiatry. The T.M.S. that my wife has been taking has truly rescued her from a hopeless and helpless life of depression.
The past 14 years she has received the usual treatment for depression. It has been a roller coaster of highs and lows going from one psychiatrist to another, one therpist after the other. She was prescribed all the meds and combinations thereof until the doses were very high and ineffective. Finally she was living in the state of depression 100% of the time and for several months by this time. When she was awake she was either crying or trying to go back to sleep. She would rarely talk to anyone on the phone. She didn’t care about anything!
She went from a working mom that cared and took pride in her appearance and her home, a woman who had a spiritual hunger to learn all she could about God and a woman who was a devoted wife, to a woman that dreaded each day.
Her previous Psychiatrist (after only two visits) told her that he had nothing different to offer her for the treatment of her depression and that her medication dosages would have to be decreased. He told her she needed some kind of alternative treatment for depression. He told us what little he knew about TMS and suggested we check it out.
We found this clinic on line and understood the basics just from the website. When my wife called, it was the beginning of a wonderful personal and professional relationship. This was a different but welcomed environment from any medical or psychiatric establishment. The staff makes sure their patients and family members stay informed as well as comfortable with the treatments. The literature, visual aids and explanations of how TMS works is easy to understand even though it is quite remarkable.
Thank You Dr. Ghelber, Jenna and April.
Thank You for returning my wife to me!” -Mike
“I was severely depressed over a period of three years. I tried several antidepressants but nothing really seemed to work. I had a severe allergic reaction. My family was very poorly impacted by the whole problem of my depression. By the end of the TMS treatment, things were better than I could have imagined. After that six week, I was so excited that my life was starting to resume. It could actually get better and that I had more to look forward to”. – Garret A.
“During that time, it was probably the darkest time in my life. I was sad and miserable all the time. Before when I was going through depression, I felt hopeless. Since TMS, my perspective on life has been so positive that I know there is hope.” – Martha F.
“I am even better after leaving the office, combination of optimism, actually capable of doing things instead of wishing I can do things, I feel capable of doing it instead of thinking that would be a great thing to do, I notice I am paying more attention to listening to people. I feel that I can take care of my health, making a more long term change. Memories that I used to interpret as negative I now see as a positive and how it has made me into the person I am today. I trust more in God and that my prayers will be answered.-Cindy, treated with Ketamine
Thank you for not giving up on me even when I have given up on myself. You have a great team (even Whitney’s lil rat/cat treat/toy)”. -B
“I was one of those people who was just about at my “wits end” trying to get help for severe depression. Here I was in my early 60’s and had been struggling with depression since I was 12. I, somehow, managed to “deal” with it throughout the years until I reached my 50s and it gradually became worse and worse. After trying a multitude of antidepressants and various depression aiding modalities I finally searched with a “vengeance” for the newest, latest and most researched types of professional help that I could find. Enter Dr. Diana Ghelber MD. When her TMS Coordinator, Whitney, called to say they could see me in two days I almost thought I was dreaming. Maybe this is the answer I have been searching for in decades! It took a fairly aggressive treatment of TMS and several Ketamine treatments but I am here to tell you it all worked. No one could be more doubtful and cynical than I but, somehow, I held on to that one last ray of hope which led me to these wonderful people. I would say to anyone who is struggling with depression to please don’t give up. There really is help out there. I found it in Ft. Worth, Texas at the Institute of Advanced Psychiatry.” -Ann
“Brain Music Therapy (BMT) has been a life saver. My daughter woke up during the night, I put my BMT on and went back to sleep. I don’t know when I go to sleep. I have been traveling and being up with kids and it is hard but I do not worry. My little daughter dances to my brain music therapy this is part of her life. She asks “Mommy did you listen to your brain music?” -Amanda
