The mental illness depression is something that impacts millions of people around the world and is surprisingly hard to treat despite how common it is. This is why TMS Health Solutions is continuing to expand in order to offer treatment that is specifically for people with depression. Recently, they announced the opening of a new clinic that is located in Burlingame according to their Chief Medical Officer Richard Bermudes.
At the clinic, there will be 3 psychiatrists on staff to treat patients with depression. These doctors who have joined the staff at TMS Health Solutions include Dr. Abel Bumgarner, Dr. Noah DeGaetano, and their CMO Dr. Richard Bermudes. They are all focused on providing the best care possible for their patients that are seeing them at the clinic. Every psychiatrist at the new location is board-certified in their areas of practice. With depression being one of the most common disabilities throughout the world, it’s important to make sure that professionals are treating the problem in an effective manner.
The staff at TMS Health Solutions is happy about how accessible their clinic is to their patients. It has a close proximity to the Mills-Penninsula Medical Center which is a great feature for those suffering from physical ailments as well as their depression. Unlike many clinics who put a big focus on prescribing medications to treat depression, TMS Health Solutions takes a different approach. They use a method known as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation which is still not widely available except for in clinics like theirs. While it has been shown to be immensely successful, it is not yet covered by many insurance companies which is something the company is hoping to change. They are wanting to increase access to this treatment in order to improve the lives of people throughout the United States.
TMS Health Solutions has their main headquarters in San Francisco, CA. The methods that they use never involve medication and instead use a magnetic field that is the same strength as an MRI to stimulate parts of the brain in order to alleviate the symptoms of depression. There are almost no side effects for the treatment.
