“We have seen firsthand how much people with OCD can suffer without effective treatment, and Deep TMS can provide them with the relief they’ve been seeking,” said Deborah Kim, M.D., co-founder of TMS Associates of Pennsylvania. “We have seen very impressive response and remission rates when treating depression with Deep TMS. Bolstered by the effectiveness of the treatment for depression, we are confident that Deep TMS will help provide better outcomes for our patients with OCD.”

Dr. Kim focuses her work on treating pregnant and postpartum women, in addition to women suffering from depression and anxiety. As a clinical and forensic psychiatrist, Dr. Rushing specializes in developing therapies for treatment-resistant OCD, engaging patients in medication management and therapy.
