Take the Depression Screen

Each patient comes to us with a different set of experiences, symptoms, and body chemistry with a unique response to various medications and other types of therapy. Sometimes a medication or dosage that works for one person will not work for another. The best option may be a non-medication solution such as TMS. We will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that best fits your needs. As necessary, we will adjust your plan to ensure that you are responding well to treatment and feeling better.

Take a simple, nine-question depression screen below to find out if the symptoms you’re experiencing may be clinical depression. This screen is the Patient Health Questionnaire 9 (PHQ9), the industry-wide gold standard for assessing clinical depression. The PHQ9 is one of the tools we use to regularly assess our patients’ progress.
