Dr. Lane Cook, MD
I was born and raised in east Texas but found my way to east Tennessee in 1983 and have been here ever since. I married a Maryville native Judy and have a son Jeremy, daughter Hayley, and step-daughter Christy. In 2005 I began working at Cornerstone of Recovery with dual diagnosis patients and am the Chief of Psychiatry there. In 2014 I started the first TMS clinic, TMS of Knoxville. This is quite a rewarding specialty and it is very satisfying to help patients go into remission from their depression and remain well despite having failed an average of 6-8 different medications and antidepressants.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cook "We have the first and only Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation clinic in Knoxville, see www.tmsofknoxville,com. This is a great breakthrough in the treatment of difficult depression. I still practice psychotherapy in addition to medication maintenance. I especially like treating ADHD, depression, and anxiety disorders."

Patient Comments (2)
Went to him for TMS and I was in bad shape. TMS did nothing and he just said oh well, took my money and sent me on my way. He knew how bad off I was and left me floundering for help on my own.
We begin by telling all of our patients that there's a one-in-four chance they may not improve at all. I have never said, "Oh well" to anyone I failed to help, never will. I take every unsuccessful treatment personally and have extended treatments, offered consultation to other doctors, and made recommendations for alternative treatments for people who do not improve.
