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

Dr. Marsella says...

TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is a non-pharmacological, non-invasive treatment which uses highly focused, MRI-strength, alternating magnetic-field pulses to target the brain in those areas where under-activity or dysfunction is linked to depression or other psychiatric or neurological disorders. Dr. Gregory Marsella was one of the first NeuroStar-TMS practitioners in the United States, and he purchased the very first Brainsway Deep TMS machine in the U.S.

Since NeuroStar-TMS and Brainsway Deep TMS have been available to the public, numerous additional rTMS and rDTMS applications have been investigated by researchers and clinicians. Dr. Marsella remains an active researcher and clinical provider of these off-label applications. Good TMS practitioners also evaluate your progress while you are receiving therapy so that appropriate real-time alterations can be made to the specific TMS protocol being applied.

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 these conditions include: Mood & Anxiety Disorders, Auditory Hallucinations, PTSD, Postpartum Depression, Tinnitus, Post Stroke Rehabilitation, OCD, and Tourette's Disorder.

I was one of the first providers of NeuroStar rTMS in the country, and purchased the very first Brainsway Deep TMS machine in the U.S.

Dr. Marsella says...

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.
