Dan’s thoughts on TMS and SPRAVATO:
“Through treatment and education, we have the potential to not only help individuals in our practice but strengthen the community as our patients retake control of their lives.
“Medication management of depression fails much of our population. TMS offers quick, pain-free treatments for people struggling to climb out of depression. SPRAVATO is a clever new formulation of ketamine that overcomes the hurdles that complicated previous widespread use of the drug in medical settings. From our experience with use of this drug from decades in emergency medicine, we understand the potential of its benefit in the improvement in depressive symptoms.” — Daniel Krause PA
