TMS Center of the Hudson Valley Expands

Riverview Psychiatric Medicine, PC and the TMS Center of the Hudson Valley are  pleased to announce the addition of a second NeuroStar TMS System to our Poughkeepsie site. Randy I. Pardell MD DFAPA our Medical Director states,  “Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a highly effective procedure and is an FDA approved treatment for depression in patients who have failed standard antidepressant mediation.  TMS has a minimal side effect burden. Currently, over 300 million people in the US now have TMS as a treatment option under their insurance policies. In a study of our own patients, 72% of our depressed patients responded favorably to TMS, and 57% became completely well. But perhaps the most powerful testimony is that our patients who have struggled with depression for much of their lives now have hope. The despair of failed medication trials is replaced with the alleviation of suffering and an improved quality of life.” Dr. Pardell holds regular complimentary TMS consultations. Please call our office to schedule a consultation at 845-471-1807 or email our TMS Coordinator Taylor Bianchini at
