TMS is a psychiatry practice currently based in California with over six locations. It offers psychiatry services for individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, mood disorders or any mental condition. Not all patients that undergo such conditions respond to medication, and that’s where TMS therapy comes in. TMS which means Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a non-invasive therapy that enables psychiatrists to treat patients who are not responding to antidepressants.
For a patient undergoing TMS therapy, a magnetic field is used to stimulate brain activity. The treatment was approved by FDA in 2008 and has less effects compared to Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECP). Founded by Dr. Richard Bermudes in 2007, TMS has grown over the years to open locations in other parts of North Carolina. Dr. Richard focus was to open a psychiatric practice that combined patient care, research, education, and to treat mental conditions in California.
The practice is equipped with friendly experts who have committed their lives to carrying out research to help people struggling with mental conditions. The team focuses more on helping people with Treatment-Resistant Depression by use of technologically advanced modes of therapies such as TMS therapy.
Mental conditions can be a lonely path in this era where people are judged for admitting they have a problem. It is a process that can be painful if you are trying to go through it alone. TMS Health solutions offer outpatient therapy for individuals on a daily basis. So the team can work with you according to your schedule to help go through this stage and heal. Just like a butterfly, TMS therapy will help you come out of the pain and blossom back into life.
With Dr. Bemudes foundation who is also the Chief Medical Officer, the clinicians are focused on patients’ growth and improvement. They also carry out research to find alternative and research-based therapies that could help them treat the patients. Dr. Lanocha is the head of education in practice and is the top published physician in the use of TMS therapy to treat depression. Currently, the team is working on a new treatment under TMS therapy. The interaction with the patients is also critical for the practice. The team is developing an app that will enable patients to engage with psychiatrists on a regular basis.
To ensure that the treatment is accessible to everyone, TMS therapy treatment is covered by major health insurance. In fact, the practice has dedicated a team of experts under Patient Access Team that help patients with all the details of their payments during their treatment. The clinicians also carry out regular workshops to raise awareness of mental disorders within California and encourage patients to seek treatment.
