If you have a neurological condition and need psychiatric care, the neuropsychiatry team at Baptist Health can help.

Our board-certified neuropsychiatrist offers psychiatric evaluations and uses medications and advanced therapies to treat new or worsening symptoms of anxiety and mood disorders.

We also work closely with Baptist Health Brain & Spine Care neurologists to manage your care so treatments don’t interfere with neurological disease therapies.

Our Approach to Neuropsychiatric Care

Our Approach to Neuropsychiatric Care

When you choose Baptist Health for neuropsychiatric care, you can expect:

  • Access to a board-certified neuropsychiatrist with experience caring for people with neurological and psychiatric conditions
  • Advanced treatments, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for treatment-resistant depression
  • Compassionate care from a team of experts focused on finding new and innovative treatment approaches

Which Conditions Do Neuropsychiatrists Treat?

Neuropsychiatrists provide care for people with neurological, psychiatric and behavioral disorders. We focus on managing medical treatments to avoid new or worsening neurological symptoms.

Our team manages psychiatric symptoms that can be caused by dementia, Parkinson disease, seizures and epilepsy.

How are Psychiatric Disorders Diagnosed?

Psychiatric disorders aren’t diagnosed with a blood test or scan. Instead, we talk through your clinical history to make a diagnosis.

During your initial visit, we’ll discuss your symptoms, family history and medical history. When possible, and with your agreement, we’ll also talk with family to get input about your symptoms and behaviors.

Neuropsychiatric Disorder Treatments We Offer

After a complete evaluation, the Baptist Health Brain & Spine Care neuropsychiatry team works with your primary care provider or neurologist to develop a treatment plan.

We may recommend a variety of treatments, including medications like antidepressants or mood stabilizers.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

We know that many people don’t respond to antidepressant medications. This is called treatment-resistant depression. At Baptist Health Brain & Spine Care, we offer transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for treatment resistant depression.

TMS is a noninvasive technological breakthrough that involves applying a series of short magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in areas of the brain known to be associated with major depression. This treatment for depression is sometimes called repetitive TMS (rTMS) because repetitive magnetic pulses are delivered.

TMS treatments can be completed within a 30-minute appointment. After TMS, you can go about your day. There is no downtime, though you may experience brief but light discomfort of the scalp. If you need TMS, you can expect to receive treatments three times per week over about 10 weeks.

Some people who have TMS experience complete remission from their depressive symptoms. Others have fewer symptoms but may still need medications. If you have TMS, it is likely you’ll be able to reduce your medications, but you may still need some medication-based treatment.
