Patient Comments (1)
in Central Islip, NY |
I had depression for 20+ yrs and could not continue any longer fighting this. I was introduced to Dr. Pitch and Sherri his assistant. They fought for 9 months with my insurance comp to get me covered. I finally was approved for TMS. It has been just over a year and my life has changed completely, I finally know what it is like to live without depression. I owe my life the these 2 very wonderful people. Thank you Dr. Pitch and Sherri.
