Now Accepting New Patients for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

If you suffer from Major Depressive Disorder and have failed to benefit from traditional medication therapy, TMS might be for you.   Using precisely targeted magnetic pulses, TMS stimulates key areas of the brain that are found to be underactive in patients with depression.   We are currently accepting new patients for TMS consultations.   If you are interested in learning more about TMS or scheduling a consultation, please click here or contact Mackenzie Muldowney, TMS coordinator, by calling 828-254-9494 or e-mailing TMS@pisgahinstitute.com
