TMS therapy review: Bart seeks NeuroStar treatment
Bart is from New York and a retired police officer. He also served in the Navy for five years. “I want to be able to help people out there who have or suffer from depression like I have,” he reflects, so he decided to share his story.
“While I was getting treated on medications, a lot of them I noticed were not working as well as they should have been working,” Bart shares. Without the benefits of medication, Bart reached out to a doctor to see if TMS therapy could provide relief.
His doctor informed him of TMS therapy with Neurostar, which piqued his interest.
“I look forward to the next day,” Bart shares.
Prior to treatment, Bart had a consultation with his doctor who explained the specifics of how NeuroStar works and what to expect during the process.
After receiving treatment, Bart noticed a change in how he felt about life: “I look forward to the next day. I look forward to a lot of things that I didn’t really care to do anymore.”
A common symptom of depression is a loss of interest in your hobbies. For Bart to look forward to the next day–-and whatever it contains—is a wonderful step towards mental wellness.
“It just shined a new light on my life,” Bart says.
