Testimonials

We attended our second refreshment course in May of 2019. It was a very pleasant environment, but more importantly very educational. We went through the history of the TMS technology and the very basics, working up to the more complex aspects. There was some hands on activities that brought the attendees together and taught everyone the basic features of the machine. They also went over how to successfully run a TMS practice and gave us a great insight on Neuroimaging for better delivering and understanding TMS treatment.
Comprehensive approach on understanding reimbursement dynamics with insurances and privet payers. It is a truly informative and very important step for any TMS interested MD’s, techs and Science curious people. Our special thanks to Dr. Rustin Berlow, MD, Joe F. Jabre, MD and William Shryer, DCSW, LCSW Great people-Great Time!”
Segal Psychiatry team

“I’m not one for superlatives, but this conference was spectacular. My time table for starting my TMS practice was catapulted forward through all I learned, the services and resources CloudTMS made available. I feel like my very satisfying 30+ year career just got a shot in the arm and my practice is getting a fresh and exciting reboot. Thank you, CloudTMS!”
John Woodall, MD, President, Synergy Health Solutions of Newtown, CT.

“The CloudTMS course was an absolute pleasure and a very useful and stimulating two days of lectures and discussions on anything and everything TMS-related. Dr. Berlow, in particular, was incredible. His expertise and interest in the therapeutic applications of TMS are second to none, and you can’t help but get excited about the future of this technology when he speaks. The hands-on experience using the software and coil, with the guidance of the wonderful CloudTMS team, was essential to our own team’s comfort level using our new machine, as well. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the advanced and powerful CloudTMS system. It didn’t hurt that it was in beautiful Venice Beach, either!”
Alan Jaziri & Dr. Walid Jaziri

“I recently attended the May 2019 conference In Marina Del Rey, CA. Being a TMS provider since 2012, this course opened my eyes to endless possibilities and equipped me significantly with how I can further help my patients. They invited multiple speakers of different professions that can help build a successful practice from ground up. I strongly recommend this course to anyone.”
