LiveWell TMS, a new depression treatment facility, has officially opened in Huntington.
Co-founded by doctors Nina and Eric Greif, LiveWell TMS specializes in transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD).
LiveWell TMS had its open house last week. Its goal is to provide a, non-drug treatment to Huntington residents struggling with depression who are not seeing relief with antidepressant medications alone. The practice uses NeuroStar® Advanced Therapy TMS, which uses magnetic pulses to awaken areas of the brain that are underactive in depression. NeuroStar Advanced Therapy offers doctors real-time feedback and delivers enhanced care with precise and accurate targeting, providing reliable and consistent treatment.
Dr. Nina Greif is a board-certified psychiatrist with more than 10 years of clinical expertise treating patients at clinics, hospitals, private practices and in a consulting capacity. Dr. Eric Greif is a board-certified radiologist who focuses on interpreting neuroimages of the brain and spine. In their new roles at LiveWell TMS, they take a holistic approach to care and practices an integrative model of treatment for each and every patient.
“Depression is on the rise in our own backyard, and alternative treatments for those struggling and not seeing relief from antidepressants are in greater demand than ever before,” said Dr. Greif. “We are already seeing a positive impact with NeuroStar TMS. It’s giving our patients a chance at remission from their depression and enabling them to live their best lives. It is important to spread the word and educate about proven non-drug options like this one.”
NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is widely covered by major insurance plans and is available by prescription. The treatment is typically administered daily in a doctor’s office for four to six weeks, with treatment sessions performed in as little as just under 19 minutes.* Unlike electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is non-invasive and allows patients to resume daily activities immediately following treatment sessions.
The practice is accepting new patients and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. To learn more and schedule an appointment in advance, call 631-944-3144 or visit www.livewelltms.com.
