We are the first in the Cleveland area to offer Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to the public as a treatment for depression!
Please visit www.tmscleveland.com to learn more!
In addition to TMS, our services include a thorough evaluation, medication management, patient education, and may serve as a complement to a patient’s current treatment team. Our belief is that the patient benefits most by following the psychiatric evaluation with a dynamic and in-depth plan of action which is focused on the emotional and physical health of the patient. This treatment plan can include medication for the diagnosis and short-term or long-term counseling or psychotherapy.
