Initial Diagnostic Consultation

We offer a comprehensive diagnostic consultation with specific and individualized treatment recommendations. This initial consult does not establish care with us and can be used as diagnostic clarification for your treatment plan. Our diagnostic evaluations include a 75 min interview, full medication history review, review of medical and psychiatric history, labs and EKG.

IV Ketamine treatment

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

TMS, a FDA approved treatment for depression, is a noninvasive form of brain stimulation in which a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI machine, stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression. The TMS protocol requires 36 treatments which can range from 4-20 mins, every weekday, over 6 weeks.

Referrals are as easy as 1-2-3

Thank you for choosing to refer your patient to us. We make the process as easy as possible to minimize the burden on you and your staff and so that your patients get into our office as soon as is possible.

Identify the right referral

Depression MD specializes in treatment resistant depression. If your patient has tried and failed mutliple antidepressants, has PHQ-9 scores greater than 14, or has adverse side effects from current medication, they may be a good candidate for our services. You may also consider referring them for diagnostic clarification.

Making the referral

Making the referral can be as simple as calling our office (203-701-9737), completing the referral form on this page or sending us a fax (877-325-2241)  with the following: reason for referral, patient demographics, insurance information, current diagnosis, and medication history. We will contact the patient and book them in our next available appointment.

Ongoing collaboration

It’s our goal to build an ongoing collaborative relationship with you. Like you, we’re also committed to providing the patient with the best care to live their best possible life. After our comprehensive diagnostic evaluation, we will send a summary of the consultation note and proposed treatment plan. Soon after, we will follow-up with a phone to discuss treatment options.
