At Achieve TMS East, it is our priority to keep our patients and employees safe. As the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to spread globally, Achieve TMS East is taking appropriate precautions to address the outbreak by following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are monitoring this situation closely and staying advised by our local, state, and federal officials. We view our treatment as essential for patients who are struggling with depression and OCD and we continue to be available to care for your needs and provide support during the difficult time for all of us. Achieve TMS East is introducing Telehealth options to facilitate safer client interaction. Free informational sessions are available by phone or video conferencing. Psychiatric evaluations and follow-ups are being offered over Telehealth as well.
Our current approach and response to COVID-19 are outlined below. Achieve TMS East follows universal precautions. We want to assure you that our equipment is being disinfected in between each appointment by our technicians and their hands are being washed/sanitized. The waiting room and all door knobs will be wiped down daily. We will also ask you to wash or sanitize your hands in our office, prior to your appointment.
As we are trying to respond appropriately and rationally to reduce the current COVID-19 spread, we appreciate your cooperation with the following:
- If you have an upcoming appointment and have recently traveled to an area of COVID – 19 prevalence, please notify us and go to your PCP for medical clearance before resuming treatment.
- If you have an upcoming appointment and you have any flu-like symptoms (Fever, aches, upper rest respiratory symptoms) please do not come into the office but call to inform our staff. Once you have medical clearance by your PCP or an urgent care facility, you can reschedule your appointment and/or resume treatment.
- If you have any questions about managing your appointment or deciding on whether to come in or not, please call us at 413-203-6922 and we can help guide you.
Thank you for your help and cooperation. We will get through this together.

Learn more about what is involved in TMS Therapy and how it can help you take on depression.
Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression.
Deep TMS technology is similar to what is used in MRIs (magnetic resonance imaging systems). dTMS is widely tested, participating in over 60 clinical trials worldwide with registered patents by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).
FDA-approved depression treatments are administered by Certified Technicians. Data has also been submitted to the FDA for dTMS in the treatment of OCD.
“For over 25 years, self-medication was my only way of coping with depression (i.e. alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, and crack). After many detoxes, acute recovery programs, Intensive Outpatients Programs, and incarcerations, I received mental health help (along with medications) with success but limited. One thing I noticed once I started TMS treatments was my ability to focus better. I also realized that when I encountered chaotic situations, breathing and taking a step back to analyze the situations became easier.
Now that my TMS treatments are over, I take it one day at a time. I also try to process any type of circumstance which I can see coming by using tools I’ve learned to use through my recovery. I would certainly recommend TMS to future patients. Although it was personally a scary thing to me at first, it was the whole team who calmed my fears when I first started and made the entire treatment very doable.
When it comes to my experience with Achieve TMS East’s services, I couldn’t ask for a more attentive, compassionate, and personable group. Whatever questions I had were met with truthful and assured answers. For a person such as me, I need to be around people who are positive, responsible, and even humorous in order for me to feel comfortable. The staff at Achieve reflect this, and it made my sessions with TMS a splendid experience.”
