Are you frustrated with taking medication for depression or OCD with partial results? Do you want a medication-free option? TMS may be for you! We are a practice of 3 psychiatric nurse practitioners, Piper Buersmeyer, Brendan Roe & Julia Swofford who provide deep TMS treatment (transcranial magnetic stimulation). The ideal client is someone diagnosed with major depressive disorder or OCD who has failed therapy and at least 2 medication trials. TMS is a non-invasive outpatient procedure. Brainsway's Deep TMS treatment is well-tolerated and stimulates the brain regions responsible for various types of brain disorders.
TMS treatment is often provided in addition to your medication regimen. Doses may remain the same at first, but as treatment progresses, medication doses can often be reduced. In some cases medications can be tapered off completely if remission is achieved.
Your health insurance may cover TMS treatment. Every insurance requires a very specific set of criteria be met for approval of TMS. The first step in your treatment journey will be obtaining a referral from your medical or psychiatric provider to setup an evaluation appointment with one of our providers.
