As a leader in the community, Dr. Cole was one of four individuals in 2016 to receive the Community Service Award at an event at Research Medical Center.

Dr. Cole has a serious commitment to his patients and wellbeing. This commitment has led him to providing the services of TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation). Dr. Cole wanted to be able to help his patients who felt as though they were at the end of their rope. They did not feel as though anything was working to help their problem. These forms of therapy have given the opportunity for a better day for patients and Dr. Cole has seen positive results with both services. He is delighted as he is grateful to hear from patients, “I don’t know where I’d be right now. Dr. Cole saved my life.”
As an active member in the Clinical TMS Society, he is knowledgeable with the current advances in TMS devices, such as recent refinements in the stimulation head. He is also enthusiastic about pending developments of TMS to treat other disorders such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Dr. Cole likes TMS provides the means for patients to continue their jobs or other activities, while they are experiencing significant relief from depression.
Dr. Cole and his wife are now empty nesters and are enjoying their time together. He enjoys outdoor activities and serving in the community.
