Hi, I’m Dr. James Winston, and I am a board certified psychiatrist.
For over 30 years I have been treating mental health problems, including depression, anxiety and mood disorders. I can speak Spanish and Russian along with English, and I am proud to serve the Milwaukee area.
My roots go back to Wisconsin, as I attended the University of Wisconsin for my medical education. Following this, I completed my residency in psychiatry at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.
I discovered Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) and it is an amazing treatment for depression.
I am honored to be a part of the effort to eradicate depression from our community and plan to continue this endeavor as my career goal.
My name is Brandy Scott, and I am a board certified nurse practitioner specializing in psychiatry.
With every patient, I always go in with an open mind and do whatever I can to provide them with the best solution. For several years I have been treating mental health problems, including depression, anxiety and hyperactive disorders, and I am proud to serve the Milwaukee area.
For my undergraduate education, I attended University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Following this, I earned my master’s degree in psychiatric-mental health nursing from the University of St. Francis.
I have been providing TMS treatment for depression to hundreds of my wonderful patients, and witness the dramatic improvement in the quality of life my patients gain during and after their treatment course.
Depression is a serious illness, which some people can treat with standard treatments like medication and lifestyle changes. For others, these treatments don’t work. If you’ve tried standard depression treatments and are still suffering, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may help you. Success TMS Treatment Centers is conveniently located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and offers TMS treatments to ease your depression symptoms.

TMS is a non-invasive depression treatment that doesn’t involve taking medication. Instead, it stimulates the prefrontal cortex with a magnetic field to improve how this part of the brain regulates your mood.
In a TMS therapy session, an Success TMS Treatment Centers technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. They turn the device on, and the coil sends magnetic impulses to your prefrontal cortex. This helps the brain cells in that region regulate your mood more effectively.
TMS therapy is a highly effective depression treatment, as our patient testimonials show.
TMS is different from other treatments in three significant ways:
TMS therapy is an effective depression treatment for people who:
Anti-depressants help many people, but they don’t work for everyone. If you don’t benefit from medication or can’t tolerate the side effects, TMS could be a viable option.
There are other depression treatments like deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy. But these involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and require anesthesia. TMS therapy is effective, non-invasive, and doesn’t require anesthesia.
Fewer than 5% of patients stop having TMS therapy because of side effects. The most common side effect is discomfort at or near the treatment site while the treatment is happening. This discomfort usually subsides after around a week of treatment.
Most TMS patients notice improvements in their mood within two or three weeks of starting treatment. Some notice positive results even earlier than this!
TMS therapy provides long-term benefits, but you may need booster treatments once in a while to stay free from your symptoms. If you need them, it’s likely that only a few consecutive sessions a year will be necessary. In most cases, insurance covers booster treatments.
TMS has documented success treating medication-resistant depression, so most insurers cover the procedure. If you’re not sure about your insurance, get in touch with Success TMS Treatment Centers in Milwaukee for a complimentary insurance verification. Call us at 414-240-6155 to confirm your insurance pre-approval.
At your first appointment you’ll spend around 15 minutes completing some paperwork and then meet with our psychiatrist. This meeting usually lasts up to 45 minutes. The psychiatrist will review your medical and mental health history and answer any questions or concerns you have, so you can make the most educated decision.
Most courses of treatment last four to six weeks. Once you’re an Success TMS patient, you’ll receive a written schedule of your full course of treatment to help you plan for any accommodations you need to make.
Most people with depression are eligible for TMS therapy, although if you have non-removable metal in your head, you may not be. The metal reacts unfavorably with magnetic energy. Non-removable metal may include:
Some types of dental work (Most dental work is okay).
Each TMS therapy session at Success TMS in Milwaukee takes 18 to 19 minutes. A typical course of treatment lasts four to six weeks, with up to five sessions a week.
