First things first...
Prior to undergoing TMS therapy, we highly advise you to go through a formal evaluation to determine whether TMS treatment is an appropriate choice for you. Anyone who is interested in giving TMS therapy a shot is more than welcome to give us a call at South Bay TMS Therapy, or drop by our office for assessment.
It is possible to make a quick diagnosis to whether one is ready for TMS therapy or not. We ask that potential patients must be willing to divulge all information concerning medication taken, psychotherapy courses, as well as the various treatments they have undergone thus far in order to combat or manage depression. This allows for us to comprise a TMS therapy course individually tailored to best address the needs of the patient at hand. By taking psychiatric and emotional conditions into account, we are able to make a more accurate diagnosis for each individual patient, maximizing the chances of achieving success in overcoming depression.
It is also highly advisable to check beforehand with the patient’s insurance provider to see whether TMS therapy falls under the insurance plan. If the answer is in the affirmative, it would go a long way in removing any worry concerning cost during the road to recovery.
Professional TMS Consultation
Nobody likes to be depressed, feeling like there is no hope in the world. While there are many different levels of depression that one can go through in life, with a variety of methods to combat or manage depression, there is no one surefire cure for all cases. Hence, a myriad of approaches are at the disposal of the psychiatrist or doctor, including a range of drugs, Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT), and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).
Assuming the patient has tried a cocktail of drugs over the years to manage his or her depression, but has not found any stark improvement in the condition, there is a predisposition to try something that could be more effective. Some might turn to ECT which would require going through general anesthesia, but what if that does not work as well? How about the non-invasive method of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)?
