California’s largest outpatient mental health organization now offers Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in San Jose, Roseville, Davis and Del Mar for treatment of Major Depressive Disorder
SACRAMENTO, Calif., August 12, 2020 — Community Psychiatry Management, LLC, the largest outpatient mental health organization in California with more than 40 offices, today announced the availability of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy through Community Psychiatry’s practices in San Jose, Roseville, Davis and Del Mar, California. This is in addition to the TMS Treatment Centers in Sacramento, Calabasas and Simi Valley.
TMS is a safe, non-invasive, non-systemic FDA-cleared treatment for Major Depressive Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The TMS device generates a pulsed magnetic field, similar to that of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. TMS works by stimulating underactive nerve cells in brain regions known to regulate mood, helping to reset brain chemistry. The typical treatment course consists of approximately 20-minute sessions, five days a week over a six-week period. There is no sedation involved and there is no down time. TMS is been well-regarded by the medical community as a safe and effective alternative treatment for depression and does not have any of the side effects commonly seen with medication.
“17.3 million American adults are diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder annually. While therapy and medications can be very effective in helping those with depression, up to 40% of patients do not receive adequate relief from these treatments,” said psychiatrist Robert Trimmer, M.D. “TMS is an incredibly safe and effective treatment option, does not carry many of the side effects potentially caused by antidepressants, and can give patients a new lease on life. We are very pleased to make TMS treatment available to our patients in even more locations throughout California.”
“The opening of our new TMS centers brings Community Psychiatry to the forefront of exceptional mental health care in California and highlights what we value above all: compassion, trustworthiness and excellent patient care,” said Priyanka, M.D., the company’s medical director. “We are committed to expanding access to TMS treatment and proud to offer this groundbreaking technology patients who need it most.”
TMS is changing the future of psychiatry through advanced technology that gives patients relief from major depression. TMS is covered by most insurance companies for major depression. For more information about TMS at Community Psychiatry, call 866-317-7282 or visit www.communitypsychiatry.com.
