I finished TMS about a month ago and it really helped my depression. With the TMS, medications, and therapy, I feel better than I have in a long time. I would definitely recommend TMS to anyone who was on the fence about whether they should complete the 4-6 week course of treatment. At first it...more

I had the privilege of meeting Dr. McCormack today as he navigated 5 family members through a delicate situation. I truly felt like I was in the presence of greatness as I listened to his wise questions and comments. He spoke respectfully to all; he listened attentively; he gave suburb counsel.

I'm so sorry to hear about your frustrating experience, but I do not feel this rating is a fair assessment of our practice. To help handle the large volume of phone calls, we employ an answering service. If our line is busy, the phones ring over automatically to our service, & operators can then take a message & fax it to our office immediately. Sometimes patients will hang up the phone in frustration before talking with the answering service, and our office therefore does not get the message.
