My name is Rod. I am a 54 year old man who has suffered from severe depression since I was 17 years old. I have been in therapy and on varying medications since that time. Around five years ago I had to try a different combination of meds every six months to try and reduce an increasing depression. A few months ago I had given up hope that there would ever be any progress. Dr. Mindy suggested I try TMS given that she had good results with other patients. I began to feel results in three weeks as my depression began to lift for the first time in years. At the end of the treatment series I was completely depression free and off all of my meds. I still attend therapy and go in occasionally for a maintenance TMS session. TMS has eliminated the depression and allowed me to be awake and alive. I would sincerely recommend TMS to anyone who no longer responds to medication. – RB
TMS has been life-changing for me! I sleep better, feel better and enjoy life again. Thanks to Dr. Mindy Werner-Crohn and her wonderful, caring, supportive staff at Calabasas TMS Center, I have my life back. I highly recommend TMS for anyone suffering from depression, especially those for whom traditional treatments, such as medications, have failed or produce unwanted side effects. I felt better within the first two weeks and actually enjoyed the treatments, especially talking with Dr. Sarah Randall. Psychiatric treatment has long been a "taboo" topic, but I feel so blessed to have received such quality care, I want to tell the world so others may benefit too. – GS
Thank you so much for welcoming me with open arms into your practice! I was so grateful to have started treatment so quickly. Your therapist recommendation has been invaluable. I have never experienced such a wonderful, supportive, and understanding group of professionals help me throughout, facing this illness that has plagued me for 12 yrs. I have looked for support and answers in so many places, and this has been the only place where I have found relief and renewal. It has meant so much to me to be able to open up and talk freely about my feelings and to get out of the darkness. I promise I will keep moving towards recovery and good health emotionally, physically, and mentally…… Thank you again for your care, compassion and understanding.– KR
Depression was robbing me of my marriage and relationships with my three teenage sons. I could no longer eat, sleep or socialize. I had lost my ability to work too. I started to battle back from depression with the help of a psychiatrist and anti-depressants. I tried several of the major drugs on the market; Cymbalta, Pristiqe, Abilify, Lexapro to name a few. While the antidepressants stopped my descent, they did little to help me regain myself. The medicines also had undesirable side effects. I experienced weight gain, a reduced sex drive, and heartburn with the use of antidepressants. I really needed something else if I were to feel happier. I was lucky enough to have a progressive and proactive psychiatrist. Dr. Mindy Werner-Crohn introduced me to the idea of using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as part of my treatment for depression. The treatment was easy and pain free. After a few weeks, I started to notice that I had a little energy to face the day. Thereafter, I was feeling better with each treatment. I now had increased energy and I was awakening to a better quality of life. I couldn't believe it! TMS therapy, along with Dr. Randall's therapy, was working for me in fighting my depression. I am now done with treatment and I'm feeling the best I have in three years. I am so grateful to Dr. Werner-Crohn and Dr. Randall for their wonderful care and treatment. These special women have made a positive difference in my life. Now that I can see past my own feet, I am hopeful for a better future as I try to reestablish myself in the world. – TM
I had suicidal thoughts, no motivation, lack of interest in friends and family. I tried four antidepressants, and they didn't relieve any of the issues I was having. And with them came side effects I wasn't willing to tolerate to get better. I came to the point in my life where I'd been depressed for quite a long time and I needed to try a different path, so I decided to try TMS. About my 5th week of ... [TMS] therapy, I started to feel a difference. I feel more motivated in my home, more joyful around people, a little more of that 'normal' feeling. That improved during the 6 weeks, and now I'm 2 months out and looking forward to the future. – Kim H.
