About

I treat all mental illness affecting adults. Since 2011 I have offered rTMS (TMS) as a treatment option for those suffering from depression that do not tolerate antidpressants well or have not responded to antidepressants in the past. TMS was FDA cleared in 2008 as a non-medication treatment option that is performed in an outpatient setting. It is well-tolerated and safe for most patients. To date I have administered more than 600 treatments in my office.

What do you attribute your success to?

  • Faith in God is central to my success as a medical professional. It guides my approach to patients in that I believe that all patients are to be treated with respect and dignity. In my counseling with patients I often incorporate their faith and help them to understand how to apply it to the challenges they are facing.
