SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT
An initial consultation will be scheduled to discuss what is troubling you and whether TMS is an appropriate treatment. At that time, you and your doctor will review your symptoms, treatment history, and possible treatment options.
If TMS is the right treatment for you, treatment can be scheduled to begin the same week of the initial consultation or the week after, if insurance authorization is not needed.
A usual course of treatment for depression involves sessions, 5 days a week for 4 to 6 weeks, although this can vary depending on your response. As you progress through your treatment, we will regularly assess with you your status and determine with you the eventual number of treatments.
– We will determine the optimal placement and strength of the magnetic field.
– Each subsequent treatment will last 30 minutes during which you will be awake and alert.
After the treatment, you can drive and resume your normal daily activities. TMS is non-invasive, meaning it does not involve surgery, and has no systemic effects. Typical TMS side effects are transient and may result in mild irritation or discomfort at the treatment site and a headache.
