WHO WE ARE
We believe our purpose is to stimulate recovery and transform lives. We at Neuromed Clinic feel privileged to treat and offer hope to people suffering from depression and are extremely enthusiastic about the results TMS achieves.
Having received specialist training at both Harvard University and Duke University, in addition to manufacture training on our chosen device (MagVenture MagProTM), we established Edmonton’s (Alberta, Canada) first TMS service in 2017.
Our welcoming and experienced staff are committed to supporting those we treat on the shared journey to recovery. By integrating TMS with therapy we believe we further optimize the effects of this modality.
As a private service, patients who choose to engage with us, do so with the understanding that it is for the purposes of treatment only (doctor-patient relationship), and does not include 3rd party work or reporting.
You can request a summary of your treatment be sent to your Primary Doctor for continuity of care.
