About Depression

Depression (Major Depressive Disorder) – is a common and serious medical illness that
negatively affects how you feel, the way you think, and how you act. Fortunately, it is also
treatable. Patients have the option of traditional psychopharmacologic medications to more of an
interventional approach, such as TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) and now Spravato
(nasal esketamine).

    to feel pleasure. In addition, a patient may experience difficulties with focus and
