Mercy Medical Center’s Outpatient Psychiatry also offers transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy for people living with major depression that cannot be improved with medication. TMS is a relaxed, noninvasive, outpatient treatment option that uses targeted magnetic pulses to rouse the section of the brain responsible for depressed mood. Sundara Munagala, MD, guides the five-day-per-week treatment, which is typically complete in less than 30 minutes as the patient comfortably sits. TMS therapy is finished at the end of six weeks. To discuss any questions about this exciting treatment for major depressive disorder, call Mercy Outpatient Psychiatry at (319) 369-4777.
Your first visit to our clinic will include an evaluation by our highly trained and certified staff, utilizing the latest information and innovations in mental healthcare.

Your referring physician may be notified of the initial visit if you give consent for us to do so. It is helpful if you arrive 10 minutes early for your appointment to allow time for the registration process. We request that you present your insurance card at each visit.
