Have you contemplated TMS therapy for your depression in Seattle, Washington? Traditional approaches and medication aren’t always effective in producing real-world results. Some people respond better to the FDA-approved TMS treatment. If you believe this is the most viable pathway for you or a loved one, then we can help you get started. However, there is some TMS therapy preparation on the patient’s end that’s in order before any formal procedures can begin.

Health Check

TMS therapy may come via referral upon an examination from a licensed physician. This includes a thorough physical and psychiatric evaluation. This ensures that you have been properly assessed and diagnosed with clinical depression.

Medical Interview/Questionnaire

It’s vital that you’re forthcoming with your physician during the preliminary medical interview. Make sure you confirm so if any of the following applies to you:

  • Pregnant, or trying to become pregnant
  • Implanted stimulators
  • Cochlear implants
  • Bullet fragments
  • Metal Plates
  • Aneurysm clips or coil
  • Stents

Day-Of Preparation

Once you have been approved for TMS treatment, there’s not much else you need to do. There are minimal to zero side effects, so you can come alone and drive to and from the appointment on your own. The session usually lasts between 20 to 30 minutes, and you don’t need to alter your eating habits prior to or after the appointment. Our only recommendation is to wear comfortable attire. In addition, refrain from wearing any jewelry or be prepared to remove them during treatment.
