Initial Physical Evaluation

Your initial physical evaluation is not a physical but a consultation to determine your suitability for the TMS treatment.  Some of the things that are important for us to know are whether you have a history of seizures or epilepsy or if you have any kind of metal implant or medical device that is non-removable as serious complications can occur.  We’ll gather information on your psychological treatment history including any treatments and medications you’ve tried. TMS is intended as a treatment for patients who have been unsuccessful at finding an antidepressant or a combination of medications that adequately work without intolerable complications.
