I am excited to share my story with you because I believe that Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a miracle therapy. Simply put, it saves lives. TMS helped save my life along with my therapist, Erica Bruce, LCSW, and my Board-Certified psychiatrist, Dr. Prashant Gajwani, MD. I want to help spread the word that people with depression don’t have to suffer anymore.
I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in 2001 at the age of 21. I am now 35 years old. I have seen many different doctors and have been on numerous medications over the past 14 years. I have struggled with both manic and depressive episodes until five years ago when I became a patient of Dr. Prashant Gajwani. With the help of Dr. Gajwani, I haven’t had a single episode in the past five years. From the first meeting with Dr. Gajwani, I immediately felt very comfortable to share my previous history. Dr. Gajwani is by far the best doctor that I have ever been a patient of. He is kind, respectful, listens, always available, understood my condition, and was able to prescribe me the medications that I am on today. Dr. Gajwani has helped me become the person that I am today. I own two successful businesses and live a stress and anxiety free life. If I have ever needed anything relating to my condition, he has immediately made himself available to me. None of my doctors in the past were so responsive and helpful. When I came to my first appointment, I was in a manic state. He recommended that I seek therapy to help regain my mental state. The therapist listened to my current problems of my manic state and helped me regain my confidence by helping me understand my existing condition through conversation, role playing, worksheets, and plain old common sense. I am entirely grateful to her for her ability to recognize my triggers and how to stop a manic attack, a depressive episode, or the social anxiety that I would feel at times. If it weren’t for Dr. Gajwani, I am not sure where I would be today. They have kept me out of the hospital, have stopped any episodes of mania, depression, or anxiety, and have helped me keep the confidence to beat this disease and live a healthy, stress free, independent, and successful life.
Mother of John:
My son has been experiencing bipolar mania with a few depressive episodes for about 15 years. My husband and I could never understand what was happening to our son. We took him to see numerous doctors and visited with numerous hospitals to try and help our son. James would seem okay for months at a time or sometimes a year at a time, and then he would experience an attack that seemed to come out of nowhere. They happened quite frequently and they happened to him very quickly. Five years ago, we were introduced to Dr. Prashant Gajwani. From the onset of our first meeting, my husband and I knew we had finally met the best professionals to help James overcome his struggle. James immediately seemed very comfortable with both Dr. Gajwani. My husband and I have never seen James respond so well to treatment. We owe our son’s new found healthy and successful life to Dr. Gajwani, and to our son himself for following their advice and participating in their programs. To date, James has not had a single attack. With his stressful job, at times he did have a little anxiety and we were able to either get in touch with Dr. Gajwani or see him that very same day. If your son or daughter is struggling with a behavioral disorder, I recommend meeting with both Dr. Gajwani. Their help has been a true miracle in helping our son succeed in life and beat his condition.
