Interview.net interviewed Ara Chackerian about TMS Health Solutions to find out what inspired him to build the company and its progress so far. When asked what gave him ideas of founding TMS, Ara said that together with his business partner, they wanted to extend their experience in constructing diagnostic radiology centers that would specifically serve outpatients.
Ara said that they had spent a decade or so building a network of health centers in Northern California, but had never thought of building facilities that would offer depression treatment using transcranial magnetic stimulation. After one of their provider partners hinted that they should look at it, they received the idea with a lot of interests, and after a research here and there, they built TMS Health Solutions.
