What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

Among the best neurological treatments I have received. Dr Diamond is fantastic at working with you to create an individualized therapy program based around your specific needs. CS

I had a traumatic brain injury.  Nothing was helping me regain my brain functioning.  Then I heard about Neurofeedback.  It is the one treatment that is helping me to regain my brain function.  I am able to sleep better, concentrate better, meditate and I hardly have any headaches any more.  It is not an instant cure but worth the time and investment – nothing is more important then a functioning brain. Thank you Tom and your Neurofeedback therapy!

An amazing team of brain health professionals. They’ve played a huge part in helping me increase my productivity and focus (not to mention helping me sleep better too). Highly recommended!
