You will meet with a licensed psychiatrist for 60-90 minutes to determine if TMS therapy is right for you.
If the criteria for TMS treatment is met, it will typically take 3-10 business days for most insurance providers to authorize coverage.
During your first appointment, a certified technician will create a targeted treatment protocol followed by your first session, which typically lasts about 19 minutes.
You will receive five 19-minute treatments Monday through Friday. Protocols can last anywhere from three to nine weeks, depending on the needs of the patient.
Follow-up TMS sessions are like “touch-ups” for your brain and can be administered on an as-needed basis.
Transformations practitioners don’t treat patients on a long-term basis, but we do our best to set you up for continued success by making medication and/or therapy adjustments as needed throughout the course of your treatments.
The local communities of Pittsburgh and West Virginia helped raise us. Now, it is our mission to give back. Our staff understands the importance of community, which is why we’ve dedicated ourselves to serving the people in these areas.
We believe that TMS will help patients achieve long-term remission from depression and major depression, leading to more productive individuals and a happier, more cohesive community.
From your first phone call with us to your last TMS session, we strive to make your experience at Transformations positively life-changing.
