An industry leader in transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy, TMS Health Solutions has been serving evidence-based psychiatric treatments since it first opened its doors in 2007. Founded by Dr. Richard Bermudes, a leader in treating treatment-resistant depression, TMS Health Solutions, just proudly announced a name change along with its new ongoing mission statement.
Welcome to Mindful Health Solutions
Already established leaders in the field of TMS Therapy, transitioning from TMS Health Solutions to Mindful Health Solutions is a message to the industry at large and the patients within it. Founder Dr. Bermudes said in a press release, “As part of our growth, we felt it was appropriate to rebrand our company. The word mindful encompasses our overall care and patient-first consideration.”
Referencing the Centers for Disease Control, nearly 17% of adults in the world will experience a condition better known as a Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), otherwise referred to as clinical depression. Up to 40% of these patients will struggle to treat their condition through conventional talk therapy and medication, leading to a diagnosis of Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD).
Seeking to address these individuals specifically, Mindful Health Solutions offers a suite of winning innovative psychiatric services to those who struggle with TRD, among other conditions. The key differentiator between Mindful Health Solutions and other psychiatric practices is their willingness to utilize innovative, state-of-the-art technology.
Leading the way is the implementation of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy.
What is TMS Therapy?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a therapeutic method used to stimulate the brain, thereby treating patients struggling with medication-resistant depression. The therapeutic modality works in an office setting without any anesthesia. Patients will relax in a comfortable chair while a medical professional directs localized electromagnetic pulses through the use of a handheld wand. These electromagnetic pulses stimulate the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, otherwise known as the area of the brain where depression’s symptoms manifest.
Is TMS Therapy Effective?
TMS therapy is an FDA-cleared and non-invasive treatment that is particularly well tolerated by patients. TMS treatment does not require any kind of surgery or sedation and will typically last between 30 and 60 minutes per session. Sessions can last for up to eight weeks, depending on how effectively the patient responds to care.
Are There Any Side Effects to TMS Therapy?
TMS therapy is understood to be well-tolerated in patients. TMS does not circulate nor does it enter into the bloodstream, thereby skipping past the common side effects associated with antidepressants, including dry mouth, headaches, or upset digestion. Some patients will report mild discomfort at the time of the procedure, but these feelings diminish after and are only mild.
Can I Take Medication and Receive TMS Therapy?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy is ideal because it enhances other aspects of your wellness routine. This FDA-cleared treatment actually benefits other aspects of your depression treatment regimen. TMS therapy can be undertaken at the same time as traditional talk therapy and antidepressant medication.
What Additional Services Are Available?
As Mindful Health Solutions continues to expand its service offerings, patients are being introduced to other innovative therapeutics, including Esketamine Nasal Spray. Esketamine is a prescription nasal spray said to help address treatment-resistant depression. Applied in an office setting under the guidance of a medical professional, esketamine is ideal for adults who have found conventional depression medication lacking. Patients taking esketamine must be accompanied by a companion driver following their appointment.
Mental Health and Newport Beach
If I were a resident in Newport Beach looking for a psychiatrist near me, I’d luck out knowing that Mindful Health Solutions just opened its newest location in Newport Beach. Already headquartered out of Union Square in San Francisco, Mindful Health Solution’s newest location will open at 4100 Newport Place Dr, Suite #730.
The newly opened Mindful Health Solutions location will feature a nurse practitioner as well as four professional psychiatrists. New locations will also open in Elk Grove and Roseville, bringing the company’s total to 15 branches.
Along with the new name and branch, Mindful Health Solutions has been implementing a renewed focus on digital strategy. The company recently relaunched its newly designed company logo in conjunction with its website change. Now fully accessible with a range of new services listed, patients can see first-hand the innovative psychiatric services offered by Dr. Bermudes and the team. Brad Hummel chimed in on the new branding efforts, saying, “It allows us to better represent our care and treatment philosophy.”
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Mindful Health Solutions has embraced video appointments and Telepsychiatry. Patients can request video appointments now by registering online or calling Mindful Health Solutions directly. Many health plans are currently waiving copay fees to alleviate the financial strain on patients during the pandemic.
