About Us

Doctor John Bailey is an osteopathic physician who has practiced psychiatry in Tallahassee, Florida for twenty-four years. He is active in his profession on many levels, and has been recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as a Distinguished Fellow since 2003. He is Board Certified in Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Inc.

Doctor Bailey has served as the President of the Florida Psychiatric Society and remains active in leadership roles in the field, both regionally and nationally. He has been a peer reviewer for psychiatric care for the Agency for Health Care Administration in Florida, for the Florida Correctional Medical Authority and for the U.S. Department of Justice. He currently participates in numerous committees affecting public policy and advocating for improvement in psychiatric care.

Dr. Ellen Berkowitz is a Tallahassee native who returned to practice psychiatry in her home community in 1987.

She has provided clinical services in a variety of settings including the US Air Force, administrative services for a large mental health center and the FL Department of Corrections, and has been on the faculty at the Tallahassee Memorial Family Practice Residency Program and the FSU College of Medicine.

She is a member of the American Psychiatric Association and the Florida Psychiatric Society and has over the years provided volunteer services through direct patient care as well as administrative activity.


Jim Stockwell, MD is the founder, President and Operations Manager of TMS Patient Care. He is a retired Tallahassee gastroenterologist.

With the encouragement of some local psychiatrists and a family member, he brought the FDA approved cutting-edge Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation to the local Tallahassee region after researching the sound scientific basis, documented effectiveness and safety of the treatment. Dr. Stockwell personally experienced the efficacy of TMS therapy when an Atlanta family member underwent successful treatment.

The local establishment of TMS Patient Care was also in keeping with Dr. Stockwell’s belief that all should have timely, convenient access to quality health care. Prior to this time, depressed patients with a need for innovative NeuroStar TMS therapy obtained treatment only by traveling long distances.

In keeping with an intense interest for access to healthcare and the prevention of colon cancer, Dr. Stockwell provided services in three, underserved rural counties during the first eight years of retirement. Also in 1992 while President of the Capital Medical Society, he was instrumental in the establishment of ‘We Care Network’ which now has over 300 volunteer physicians delivering specialty medical services to individuals with incomes less than 150% of the Federal poverty level. To date, services totaling 70 million dollars have been provided by the physicians of the Capital Medical Society and its generous partners.
