NeuroStar Advanced Therapy TMS in the News

What Is TMS Therapy?

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven’t been effective.

TMS therapy was cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October 2008 for patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medications.

TMS Therapy is a short outpatient procedure, performed in one of our clinical offices under the supervision of a psychiatrist. During treatment, you remain awake and alert. The typical initial course of treatment is about 20 minutes, depending on what the doctor determines is the correct protocol. Treatment is typically on weekdays over a 7 weeks period.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

TMS is primarily used to treat major depressive disorder (MDD), sometimes simply called depression.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. TMS patients receiving TMS Therapy remain awake and alert during the procedure.

The short video to the right will give you a good understanding of what TMS is and how it might benefit you.

What Is NeuroStar TMS Therapy?

TMS Therapy ® is an outpatient procedure. The typical treatment course consists of at least 5 treatments per week over a 7 weeks period.

  • FDA cleared for patients who have not benefited from prior antidepressant treatment.

What Our Patients Are Saying About

Gut Feelings Psychosomatic Medicine

I have been a patient of Dr. Mike's since 2022. I

first reached out to Gut Feelings when I was

experiencing a number of challenging health

issues, including serious depression and

anxiety. I began seeing Dr. Mike virtually. Now, I

see him in-person in his office in Oakland.

Dr. Mike is thorough, patient, and a great

listener. He genuinely cares about me as a

person and takes the time to consider all of the

things going on in my life. I appreciate that he

is willing to consider a variety of solutions.

Thank you, Dr. Mike.


Caring and talented are just a few of the many

attributes of Dr Hoaglin who works so hard for

the patients he loves to care for. Our

community is so fortunate to have an MD who
