Known in North County as CalTMS, the California Medical Behavioral Health specializes in anxiety and depression treatment using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy is a non-invasive, non-systemic, non-drug treatment for depression.

Dr. Chaudhri goes into detail regarding how TMS therapy works and the supporting research behind the treatment’s success. This interview is meant to share an alternative method to treating depression and any of the doctors at CalTMS would be happy to discuss if TMS therapy is right for you.
