TMS Therapy Testimonials

Testimonials about Dr. Pearson

"I have been challenged with major depression for over ten years and have been treated with a plethora of medications which had minimal and short term effects. I have to say that I was doubtful about the effectiveness of TMS at the onset of treatment. I diligently studied all the information I could find and read many testimonials as to individuals outcomes. The first two weeks I did not notice a significant change. I openly shared my feelings of hopelessness and despair with the technicians, Sarah and Guy and with Dr. Pearson. They were all so supportive and encouraging resulting in a sense of returning hope for me. Just as they said, about the 3rd and 4th weeks I started feeling improvement in my mood. From that point forth improvement continued until my final session to where I can happily claim that the depression has subsided substantially and is now quite manageable and feels like I am experiencing remission from the symptoms.

I cannot thank Dr. Pearson and his staff enough for the fine patient care I received. I had heard stories about other TMS providers being just a puppy mill showing little care and concern for the patients. The level of care, support and encouragement that I received at Penn-Tampa TMS was stellar. If you are considering TMS I would recommend that you make an appointment and discuss the process with Dr. Pearson. He was cordial, patient, understanding, professional and answered all of my questions and concerns. If you need or are considering TMS this is the place to go."

"I knew as soon as I met Dr. Pearson that he was a different kind of doctor. Most doctors (not all, but most) appear to be too busy "getting through" their patient schedule to take any real time with me. I've often felt as if I am wasting their time and I'm just another invoice to submit to billing. Dr. Pearson has a very relaxed and down-to-earth demeanor and made me feel at ease immediately. He is intuitive and asked me just the right questions to narrow down to my specific issues; within the first visit we had a plan for how to proceed and I felt hopeful about the future. He explained treatment in detail and with examples I could understand and I felt like I had made a friend by the time I left the office. He employs the NeuroStar TMS therapy and Sarah Pearson explained in detail how the treatment works and what I could expect going forward. They are a dedicated team and obviously care deeply about the well being of their patients. I highly recommend!"

"Dr. Pearson is not your typical 'small picture' doctor. He spent a long time getting familiar with my history, treatments and experiences. He doesn't believe in unnecessary testing or throwing pills at the problem, he is truly a holistic diagnostician. He offered me an alternative treatment to deal with my decades old issues and I'm excited to see how it works. After seeing so many doctors who treated me like another invoice Dr. Pearson is a welcome change. I can't recommend him enough."

"We knew this was the place for us immediately! From Tracy at the front desk, to the doc, and then his wife, Sarah, we felt we were in the perfect care. This office is the friendliest, family-like office I think we have ever been to. Dr. Pearson is down to earth and simultaneously brilliant in his approach to patient care. To say he is thorough and that he cares is and understatement! He takes the time necessary to treat his patients fully and to understand their needs and issues with such kindness. He is so humble and and so patient and takes the time to explain everything. He even made a phone call himself to be sure an off-site imaging place was responding to a request for an appointment. We HIGHLY recommend!!"

Testimonials from Other Patients Who Received NeuroStar Advanced Therapy

At first I thought that this treatment was just the “same old, same old.” In fact, it turned out to be a very relaxing time which I am now trying to duplicate at home as part of a regular morning routine. I always felt that the staff were there to support me completely through follow-up sessions and trying to make me comfortable. TMS exceeded my wildest expectations. Almost immediately the world looked bright and new. I so appreciate the opportunity to find a very different world and life. – Tim A.

I was severely depressed over a period of three years. I tried several antidepressants but nothing really seemed to work. I had a severe allergic reaction. My family was very poorly impacted by the whole problem of my depression. By the end of the TMS treatment, things were better than I could have imagined. After that sixth week, I was so excited that my life was starting to resume. It could actually get better and that I had more to look forward to. – Garret A.

During that time, it was probably the darkest time in my life. I was sad and miserable all the time. Before when I was going through depression, I felt hopeless. Since TMS, my perspective on life has been so positive that I know there is hope. – Martha F.
