Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

If you are suffering from depression, you are not alone. Approximately 16.1 million people in the U.S. live with this serious illness. About 4 million of these do not benefit from standard antidepressant medication NeuroStar TMS Therapy® may be able to help, with effective, non-drug treatment for depression that is bringing new hope to patients every day.

NeuroStar TMS Therapy is an FDA-cleared safe and
effective treatment for adult patients with depression who have not benefited from prior antidepressant medication. It works by stimulating areas of the brain that are underactive in patients with severe depression. Because it is not a depression drug, NeuroStar TMS Therapy is free from the side effects that patients often experience when they take antidepressant medication.

Dr. Appleton has been with Neuronetics since 2009 having one of only two clinics in Florida that performed TMS sessions at that time. His expertise and knowledge in psychiatry and neurology was instrumental in training new doctors about TMS and helping to expand TMS throughout Florida. His awarded blue ribbon clinic was also a training clinic for other doctors to learn from. His knowledge of TMS combined with his experience is why patient satisfaction remains high.


Dr. Appleton is an internationally recognized expert for his research, evaluation and treatment of sleep disorders and mental health. He is quadrupel-board certified, including that by the American Board of Independent Medical examiners resulting from his extensive experience with medical legal evaluations and insurance examinations in neuropsychiatry, sleep medicine, forensics and addiction.
