There Are Many Ways to Treat Depression
Just like people, every depression is different. While antidepressants may work for some, 25% of the 16m people suffering from depression physically can’t take them for one reason or another. And, no matter how many sessions you’ve tried, psychotherapy may take years to get to the source of the depression.
When medications and talk therapy aren’t enough, there is new hope.
TMS of Central Florida
An Advanced Treatment for Depression
100% Safe and Effective
TMS is recommended for people with major depression who have failed to respond to at least one antidepressant. TMS is safe, FDA approved, proven to work, and covered by most insurance providers. TMS is also a safe alternative depression therapy for those who may be pregnant and are unable to take medications.
Patients being treated with TMS do not require anesthesia or sedation. They remain awake and alert and return to work or their daily routine immediately after each 19-minute treatment. An average treatment plan lasts 36 sessions.
Performed by Licensed Psychiatrists
TMS Therapy is the best solution to major depression when traditional therapies don’t work. All TMS procedures are performed under the care and supervision of a licensed psychiatrist.

“At first I thought that this treatment was just the “same old, same old.” 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.”
I would like to thank Dr. DeVine for his professionalism and dedication to my mental health and overall well-being. He did not give up on me, He promised he help me, and make me better. He saved my life.”
“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.”
