This content was provided by Dr. Kuluva "Dr. Kuluva earned his B.A, at U.C. Berkeley with honors, attended the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University, then completed a six-year combined residency in psychiatry and neurology at NYU. Following his residency, he did a one-year research fellowship on Traumatic Brain Injury at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and the Bronx Veterans Administration. Dr. Kuluva has a specialty in the treatment of the post-concussive syndrome and has worked closely with both athletes and the general population who are coping with the neuropsychiatric aspects of this condition. He has also worked with veterans to take care of both the physical and emotional components of their injuries. Throughout his career, Dr. Kuluva has been active in medical education, teaching at NYU School of Medicine, UCSF/UC Berkeley Joint Medical Program and Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine. He has published in both the neurologic and psychiatric literature. Dr. Kuluva served as department head of neurology at Alta Bates Medical Center in Berkeley before joining TMS Health Solutions in 2016. He is currently treating clinically depressed patients with TMS therapy and medication. He is also developing a program that will use TMS to treat neurological conditions such as mild cognitive impairment, chronic pain, migraines, traumatic brain injury, as well as aid in post-stroke recovery."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kuluva "I am passionate about developing authentic and trusting relationships with my patients and seeking leading-edge therapies for treatment-resistant psychiatric and neurological conditions. In my treatment approach, I consider the physical, emotional, and social aspects of coping with an illness. I view the patient as a whole person rather than focusing on one issue without personal context. I strive to ensure that my patients are active participants in their healthcare. I provide the highest level of patient education and encourages patients to evaluate all treatment options so they select the treatment that feels most comfortable to them."
