We are excited to announce that the TMS Center of the Hudson Valley (located at 370 Violate Ave, Poughkeepsie, New York 12601) is OPEN for treatment with enhanced protocols to ensure your safety and the safety of our staff.  TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) Therapy, is an innovative, non-drug treatment for difficult to treat clinical depression when multiple antidepressant medication trials have failed or medications were not tolerated due to side effects such as weight gain or sexual dysfunction (or due to pregnancy).  It is an outpatient, in-office treatment that requires no sedation and is conducted while the patient is fully awake and sitting in a chair similar to a dentist’s chair (as seen in the picture below).

The Medical Director of the TMS Center of the Hudson Valley, Randy I. Pardell, MD, is one of the world’s leading experts in TMS Therapy and is the President-Elect of the Clinical TMS Society.
Over 72% of our patients are responding to TMS and over 57% are completely in remission of symptoms of depression at the end of treatment without the side effect burden of medication therapy.

TMS is FDA-cleared for treating the following conditions:

  • Major Depressive Disorder (“MDD”)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (“OCD”)
  • Migraine headaches.
TMS has also been shown to be effective (not FDA-cleared) in treating other conditions including:
  • Bipolar depression
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (“PTSD”)
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (“GAD”)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (“ADHD”)
  • Alzheimer’s disease; 
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Chronic pain
  • Tinnitus

In addition, TMS Therapy has been shown to improve verbal working memory and concentration.   For more information about TMS Therapy or to find out if it may be right for you, please click this link: https://www.riverviewpsychiatric.com/tms/ or email us directly at info@riverviewpsychiatric.com.
