TMS

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy: 

TMS therapy is an FDA approved form of brain stimulation used to treat patients with depression who have not improved sufficiently through conventional approaches. In many cases we are able to offer a lower cost TMS treatment program than other TMS providers on Long Island. There are promising results for other uses of TMS therapy in patients with ADHD, OCD other mental illnesses. Trials are in progress for smoking cessation. 

 

Our Equipment Reduces Cost:  

The vast majority of TMS devices on Long Island are obtained from Neurostar or Brainsway companies which charge the treating physician a substantial "per-use" fee. Ours was purchased outright from Nexstim. This enables us to pass the savings to our patients which will result in a substantial reduction in fees for this often cost-prohibitive treatment. It also allows us to offer a reduction in fees for patients with financial hardship. Our staff will also work with patients' insurance to determine if insurance will cover all or part of the cost of TMS.
