Before undergoing TMS, you attend a consultation with Dr. Bishop or Dr. Gager. They have the skills and experience to assess whether you’d be a good candidate for TMS. TMS is particularly suitable for patients who’ve been following a treatment program containing appropriate forms of psychotherapy and medication but aren’t showing much improvement or experience intolerable side effects from medications.
You might also benefit from TMS in addition to other treatments. Or if you have unpleasant side effects from your medication, TMS provides a way of treating depression without medication.
CloudTMS has FDA approval for treating major depression, treatment-resistant depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). TMS is undergoing FDA review for treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and addiction, and has proven useful as off-label treatments for patients who have anxiety, physical pain, bipolar depression, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and addiction problems.
