John O’Reardon, MD is a leading expert on treatment-resistant depression and on the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and other devices in the treatment of mental disorders. His website is www.johnoreardonmd.com
In this 30-minute interview, he gives mental health clinicians essential information about this important treatment option. He answers the many practical questions that occurred to me about TMS. Which patients are ideal to be referred for TMS? How can we find out if the patient’s insurance will pay for it? How exactly is TMS delivered? Why is it important for TMS to be delivered by an expert? What should be done if the patient does respond to TMS? What should be done if the patient does not respond to the TMS? He briefly answers all these and many more.
