Jonathan H. Schwartz MD
Dr. Jonathan Schwartz, MD, was born in New Bedford and has been practicing adult and child psychiatry for over 32 years. He graduated from McGill University Medical School in Montreal and trained at Massachusetts General Hospital (Adult Psychiatry) and Children’s Hospital (Child Psychiatry) in Boston. Dr. Schwartz specializes in the areas of Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Addictions, and ADHD. He served as the psychiatrist at U.Mass. Dartmouth from 1985 until 2016 and is currently the Medical Director at Steppingstone in Fall River, MA.
NeuroStar approached Dr. Schwartz in late 2015 to start a TMS practice. Later in the year, he attended a conference where a guest speaker shared his success stories in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation with the audience. Because Dr. Schwartz is results-focused and was blown away by the success rates, he started treating patients with TMS in late 2016.
During the first three years of the TMS practice in New Bedford, Dr. Schwartz noticed that many of his patients were traveling from the Plymouth area and Cape Cod to receive TMS in New Bedford. To better serve these patients and people living on the south shore, Dr. Schwartz opened a second and third locations in Plymouth and Mashpee, MA.
