Completed TMS
I am doing a review for an update to my previous review. I have completed TMS and it went beyond my expectations. I am having fewer symptoms of anxiety, obsessions, bipolar depression, and suicidal thoughts. I recommend this treatment and Dr. McCormack's office to handle the treatment. They are professional and were pulling for me the entire way. I had 30 treatments over the course of 6 weeks. I can go back for maintenance if needed. Thanks ABM!!

I have seen Dr. McCormack since 2019 and am currently receiving TMS. I specifically asked about alternative treatments to coincide with my medication and he informed me on several treatments. I have enjoyed being a patient of his. He is fair, listens intuitively and is always kind, compassionate, and professional. He takes all of my concerns and has my best interest at heart. I am glad to finally be making headway with a psychiatrist as there is so much stigma surrounding mental illness. His staff is amazing and he runs his practice with integrity and healing in mind. I am so happy to have found someone to assist me in navigating the ups and downs of mental health. Thank you ABM!

After going through all the trouble of filling out the new patient paperwork and taking it by the office, waiting a week and having to call them when they said they would call me, I was told they were out of my network and I would have to pay full price. I found out while searching for another provider that Athens Behavioral and Dr. McCormack are on the list of network providers. Either the office staff lied to me or they are not doing their job.

I went to turn in new patient paperwork nervous because I previously had a bad experience with an old physician, & the receptionist that was sitting in the second chair was so kind & really helped put my mind at ease. She really made me feel welcomed & cared for. I left Athens Behavioral that day with a huge smile, & with a sense of relief knowing that I chose the right office to go to. I want to give a huge thanks to the staff because it was good to be treated with professionalism & care.

Dr Mac has cared for my daughter since age 7. She is now 19. She and I both trust Dr Mac AND his staff! Over the years , we have had multiple opportunities to interact with his staff. They have always been so helpful and willing to go the extra mile. When dealing with my child, I only accept the highest level of care. Dr Mac and his staff meet , and more often than not , exceed my expectations. We could not be happier.

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 seemed almost impossible to come 5 days a week but Suzy made me very comfortable and was very kind and attentive to me.

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.

Office phone rolls to answering service 9 out of 10 calls DURING BUSINESS HOURS. Still charges cancellation fees even when you DO call to cancel before the 24-hour deadline because the calls roll to answering service. Unless you want a full-time job of trying to get in touch with them, don't bother.

Dr. McCormack was extremely helpful with providing the care I was seeking. I had a bad experience with a Psychiatrist when I was a kid and was very nervous about seeing another. He & his staff was friendly, easy to talk to, kind, & most importantly listened well. He went above & beyond to help find solutions that worked within my budget & limited medical coverage. Would highly recommend.
