The psychiatrist will provide the patient with the patient manual, “Depression Patient’s Manual for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation with the NeuroStar TMS Therapy System,” prior to treatment, to allow each patient sufficient time to review the information about the device and the procedure and discuss this information with his/her physician and family.

“Prescription” means that the attending psychiatrist has determined that the use of the NeuroStar is indicated for use in a particular patient, utilizing the FDA-cleared labeling, including benefits and risk of NeuroStar TMS Therapy, as provided in the NeuroStar User Manual. In addition to patient selection, the attending psychiatrist should oversee initial patient motor threshold determinations, treatment parameter definitions and overall TMS treatment course planning for each patient.

The TMS of Westchester NeuroStar TMS System professionals possess clinical expertise to monitor the patient during the conduct of a TMS treatment session.
