TMS of the Carolinas, LLC was founded in 2020 by Terry & Donna Wise

Terry & Donna are also the co-founders of Genesis A New Beginning Counseling Services with office locations in Concord, Salisbury, Albemarle, Lexington & Greensboro NC. Genesis A New Beginning has been a leading provider in counseling services in these communities and the surrounding areas for the past 20 years.

TMS of the Carolinas was formed because we recognized that behavioral therapy and medications were not resolving the problem of severe depression. This realization led us to seek alternative treatment options for Major Depression. This search ended when we were introduced to the NeuroStar Advanced Therapy system,  the #1 TMS choice for Doctors nationally!


Philip Nofal, M.D. is the Medical Director at TMS of the Carolinas.

Dr. Nofal is a leading psychiatrist in the region and has been serving professionally for 28 years.  Dr. Nofal brings almost 3 decades of caring psychiatric experience and oversight to TMS of the Carolinas.

 Teresa Haggard, RN, MSN, FNP-BC joined the TMS team in January 2023. Teresa is a graduate of the University of Chapel Hill School of Medicine and she will bring her vast experience as a Nurse Practitioner to TMS of the Carolinas. We are excited to have Teresa on the medical team at TMS of the Carolinas!

TMS of the Carolinas is proud to have three caring, experienced    and certified TMS Treaters on the staff.

This team consist of Suzanne Hirschberg, Lead Treater

and Treaters Marie Shehan and Tammy Hichman.

Gracelia Roberts is the Administrative Assistant for the clinic. Gracelia, also known as "Pinky" brings her admin skills and her   love and care for the patients to TMS of the Carolinas.
