When Ara Chackerian founded TMS Health Solutions, with business partner Brad Hummel, he envisioned the widespread use of transcranial magnetic stimulation. His company has built seven cutting-edge offices to date.
After graduating from Florida State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in marketing, Chackerian began investing in medical technology. He is currently a managing partner of the investment firm ASC Capital Holdings, LLC. In this position, Chackerian oversees investments granted to rising medical technology companies.
Before founding TMS Health Solutions, Ara Chackerian helped to create a network of outpatient medical offices in Northern California. The offices, which provide diagnostic radiology treatment, led to Chackerian and Hummel’s next venture.
The two, following advice from an associate, began to investigate the technology behind transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy. They were wildly impressed with the positive effects that transcranial magnetic therapy had on patients, and predicted the technology, along with medicine and talk therapy, would become a pillar of modern psychiatric treatment.

Ara Chackerian and Hummel set up a meeting with transcranial magnetic stimulation expert, Dr. Richard Bermudas. Dr. Bermudas had been attempting to implement transcranial magnetic stimulation as a form of therapy but had been met with a few problems.
Dr. Bermudas was a practicing clinician, and so he found it difficult to conduct a group practice. Additionally, because transcranial magnetic stimulation was a new technology, Dr. Bermudas was having trouble finding qualified technicians. For more details visit Ideamensch.
Dr. Bermudas had encountered another problem as well. Insurance companies often refused to cover the costs of transcranial magnetic stimulation treatment. This impeded Dr. Bermuda’s desire to spread the use of TMS therapy.
Chackerian decided they model of outpatient psychiatric care being used was outdated. With TMS Health Solutions, Chackerian is fixing the issues. His seven TMS Health Solutions offices provide extraordinary patient-focused care, in an environment that is both warm and relaxing.
