If you are suffering & reading this, you are not alone & there are caring people with tools that can help.
From scheduling to insurance coverage to the care they provided, Neuro Wellness Spa has exceeded expectations. My psychiatrist is so knowledgeable—his insights are on point & he truly listens.
I highly recommend seeking care from Neuro. They were able to schedule my consultation via video call. Immediately, my psychiatrist made me feel like he was really going to take care of me—and he has. I started off with medication but once I learned about TMS, I wanted to start right away. Now, my sleep has improved, my mood is better & my energy is back.
