Information for Referring Medical Providers:
The Pacific Center for Neurostimulation is a private outpatient clinic in the Northgate neighborhood of Seattle that specializes in the treatment of psychiatric disorders with deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS). Patients who are referred to us for TMS will continue their ongoing relationship with their current clinicians throughout their course of TMS treatment. All decisions regarding medication management and treatment are made in conjunction with the referring psychiatrist or healthcare provider. Patients undergoing TMS will be encouraged to continue seeing their primary clinicians and to continue psychotherapy, if applicable, during their TMS course. Patients will return to the care of their current clinicians upon completion of their TMS treatments.
Contraindications for rTMS:
-Hospitalization for a suicide attempt <6 months
-Current psychotic symptoms
-Current substance abuse
-Any devices with ferromagnetic materials implanted in or near the head
-Any condition with increased intracranial pressure
