Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

Over the last decade, my focus has been directed towards researching treatments for a variety of the most common psychiatric disorders – Depression, Anxiety, and various Mood Disorders. My treatment philosophy recognizes that pharmacological therapies for these conditions, should be aimed at an individual's particular genetic makeup. In my experience, when this approach is used in combination with transcranial magnetic stimulation, you find patients achieving higher rates of remission for longer periods of time.Read more

I ask you to please bear with me in the event you find yourself experiencing an extended wait time. I am thorough and detailed in my explanations with every client.

We were given an appointment to which the doctor never showed up. It is incredible that this day an age there is no regard for peoples time.

Dr. Marsella is the most technically knowledgable doctor that I have ever been the patient of, and I have a high level of trust in his decisions. He takes time to talk with me during each appointment to see how the treatment is working and to hear my concerns, unlike other doctors I have dealt with. He also takes time to explain his reasoning and any treatment options, though very technical aspects can be hard to grasp. Sessions are thorough, but can run long, so be prepared to wait 30+ minutes.

He was over one hour late and babbled on about things that were too intricate and was unattentive to my lack of understanding

Dr. Marsella says...

I have found, along with experts in the field of genetics, that these specific variations in our genes can sometimes show a person's predisposition towards certain psychiatric disorders. There are many factors involved in whether someone will develop a psychiatric disorder, and genetics is just one piece of the puzzle. What this does mean, however, is that if a person's psychiatric history and current symptoms lead to several potential diagnoses, it would make sense for doctors to see what their genetic make-up has to say about what disorders they have a predisposition towards.

This could potentially eliminate some of the "guesswork" from psychiatric evaluations. Instead of spending months, and sometimes years, to find a "cocktail" to address the symptoms of the individual, I find that my patients who have clinically significant genetic findings are back on their feet sooner, which also can lower their out-of-pocket expense – incurred by numerous treatment failures – considerably.

Dr. Marsella says...

In addition to treatment of Depression utilizing Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, I also offer Off-label treatments for a variety of psychiatric and neurological disorders. Some of those conditions include: Mood & Anxiety Disorders, Auditory Hallucinations, PTSD, Postpartum Depression, Tinnitus, Post Stroke Rehab, OCD, Tourette's.

I was one of the first providers of NeuroStar TMS device in the country in 2009. And was also one of the first providers of Deep TMS using Brainsway's device in 2013.

I ask you to please bear with me in the event you find yourself experiencing an extended wait time. I am thorough and detailed in my explanations with every client. As a result, appointment times will frequently run over the time allotted. In certain situations, my secretary may be able to notify you in advance of the delay.  Please continue being patient, and remember you will also be given the amount of time you need during your visit.

One of my top concerns is that your time in my office is pleasurable. If in the event it isn't, I would like to hear about it so that I may improve future visits for you. And, as usual, I will continue to look forward to all of the positive reviews I receive.
