What is the Procedure Like?

Patients receive treatment at a convenient, in-office setting while reclined in a  comfortable chair. There is zero wait-time for TMS patients. You are seen on time as scheduled.

The stimulating coil is placed over the patients head and emits a clicking sound when on. The patients initially feel a sharp flicking sensation where the coil is positioned. The flicking sensation attenuates after a few treatment sessions.  The stimulating coil is placed over the patients head and emits a clicking sound when on.

Patients have the option of watching tv, reading, listening to music or a guided meditation or chatting with the technician while treatment is occurring.

Patients remain awake and alert during the administration of treatment; there is no negative effect on alertness or cognition.

Treatment is administered for 5 days per week, most often for a full 6-8 weeks, depending on the condition/prescribed protocol.

Upon completion of each treatment session, patients can resume their regular activities, including driving themselves home or moving into another treatment modality.

Most people continue with or subscribe to a variation of their existing medication regime as prescribed by their administering psychiatrist while completing TMS Therapy.
