MISSION STATEMENT:
I have many years of experience treating patients from all parts of the world with many different types of mental problems. Over the course of my practice of psychiatry, I have become particularly impressed with the toll that major depression can have on the lives of my patients and their families.

I am committed to make all resources available to my patients and all treatment modalities accessible to them. TMS can provide effective treatment for depression without the difficulties patients can experience with multiple medication trials. I am aware that patients sometimes cannot tolerate medications or may never reach their goal to full recovery. In TMS, it is my hope that I can provide a relevant treatment option for my patients and those of my colleagues. I am also excited by the prospect of new research and applications of TMS for the treatment of other medical conditions.

Please feel free to contact us at Golden gate TMS to discuss your interest in TMS and we will be happy to assist you in gaining knowledge about this treatment option.

Richard A. Shapiro, M.D
