TMS Long Island Corp. is a family-owned and -operated business that was founded by Stephen M. Perret, M.D. and Kristin A. Perret, Ph.D.

As two practitioners with expertise in chronic and severe mood disorders, we have expanded our practices to include Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as an evidence-based treatment for refractory adult depression.

In our work we see patients with depression attempt many different modalities of treatment (e.g., talk therapy and various antidepressant medications) but some find incomplete relief. We are excited to offer TMS as an option for hope and relief to those individuals.

TMS has a novel, patient-specific, and targeted mechanism that has shown excellent response rates (>70%) in refractory patients with minimal short-term side effects. TMS can be an alternative to medication and can have lasting benefits after a relatively brief treatment period (4-6 weeks). Additionally, TMS recently gained American Psychiatric Association (APA) and Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the treatment of treatment-resistant depression and is fully covered by Medicare, as well as some private insurance plans. We currently accept Medicaid, Aetna, Cigna, and United!

At a time when medication has been failing, and hopelessness is setting in, TMS Long Island Corp welcomes you. We are here...for you. Our approach is highly individualized--where each person is as important as the treatment itself. We take care and time to make you feel comfortable during the experience. It’s time to move toward the life you desire, without depression weighing you down. Give us a call and we will happily discuss and answer all questions about TMS LI.
