To that end, we are pleased to offer non-invasive, drug-free treatment options for patients who suffer from chronic depression, headaches or insomnia.

Dr. Chintalapudi says...

Headaches & Migraines - We employ a mix of treatment options customized to the individual needs of the patient, including innovative solutions such as Cefaly®.

Sleep Disorders & Insomnia - Can't fall asleep? Experiencing unwanted sleep episodes during normal waking hours?  You're not alone. Fortunately, there is hope.

Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders - People who suffer from this brain disorder often experience recurrent seizures, convulsions, spells and blackouts.

Neuromuscular Disorders - Diagnosing muscle and movement disorders early may help reduce symptoms such as weakness, pain or even paralysis

Depression - Depression is a serious medical condition that can have debilitating effects if left untreated.  Discover how dTMS is yielding positive outcomes.

Dizziness & Balance - Balance problems do not feel the same to everyone and may indicate one or a number of underlying medical conditions

Dr. Chintalapudi says...

Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) - Used to evaluate electrical conduction of the motor and sensory nerves. 

Electromyography (EMG) - Evaluates and records the activation signal of muscles. EMG is used as a diagnostic tool for identifying the cause of pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the muscles or nerves.

Electroencephalogram (EEG) - An electroencephalogram is a test that measures and records the electrical activity of the brain. 

VNG testing -  A series of tests designed to document a persons ability to follow visual objects with their eyes and how well the eyes respond to information from the vestibular system. 

Sleep Study - Patients with chronic sleep problems are diagnosed in a Polysomnogram (PSG). During a Sleep Study the patient is monitored during sleep and physiological data is electronically recorded. 

Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) - Sends magnetic impulses intended to "jump start" electrical activity into areas of the brain responsible for depression.
