Every patient is unique - unique genetics and unique life experience define mental health. As patients who use our technology continue to share their stories, we see three common themes: they find medication to be inadequate, they find medication to be ineffective, or they want to try a non-drug treatment option first. We invite you to read their powerful testimonials.
What our patients say
I'm off medication
"Changed my life! Was on medication for 13 years for my anxiety and depression. Side effects were probably worse at times than the actual anxiety. Been off medication for almost two years now."— Sam M
Like flipping a switch...
"I've suffered from chronic anxiety for over 7 years. Only recently were my symptoms diagnosed as PTSD. The device it is almost like flipping a switch - it reboots my brain back to a resting state of clarity and calm."— Elizabeth, Neuroscientist
Even my doctors are shocked
"After a lifetime of PTSD induced insomnia, I'm sleeping through the night. Even my doctors are shocked - we had tried every medication known to the psychiatric/neurological community."— Joe S
What the doctors say
Reduce or eliminate dependence on drugs
"I have had great success using the device to treat severe, chronic insomnia in patients who are resistant to pharmacotherapy. Also, patients who seek a drug-free alternative to treat insomnia have used the Fisher Wallace Stimulator to reduce or eliminate their dependence on drugs."— Andres San Martin, M.D. Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia University
There's no harm in trying the device - it can only help
"In my experience I have patients that have continued on their antidepressant medication in conjunction with the cranial stimulation unit, either at the original dose and they've got an added benefit, at a lower dose because of side effects on the antidepressant and have continued to get the initial benefit that they had on the high does of antidepressants but without the side effect, and patients that have successfully been discontinued off their antidepressants."— Dr. Eric J. Bartky, MD, Department of Pedatrics and Psychiatry, Morristown Memorial Hospital
What the media says
"Columbia University Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry Richard P. Brown says he has used the device with 400 severely depressed patients and that more than 70% find relief, about twice the rate of anti-depressants."
"But since I couldn't stop talking about my good mood and hypercharged focus, my friends stopped laughing and started asking if they could borrow it. I'm reluctant to let go of my stimulator, however."

"One of four technologies innovating mental health."
Fisher Wallace is helping the Seattle Police Department to "normalize access to self-care."
"The Fisher Wallace device...turned out to be the most impactful intervention in all my antidepressant exploration. At $499, it was an investment, but considering that most people with depression seek therapeutic treatments often not covered by health insurance, the possible savings on therapy and drugs over my lifetime seemed to justify the expense."
