Needs to retire. Late for appointment which doesnt help a patient with anxiety. He couldnt hear nor communicate well... at all. After speaking with him and specifically telling him that therapy didnt help, he insisted that my son be scheduled for therapy which in turn worsened his condition. I took my son because he is dealing with depression and social anxiety. So what does this "Doctor" do? He suggests he join the military. First of all, with a mental health disorder, it would be very difficult to join the miliary. Second, if you are suffering from crowds and social anxiety, the military wouldnt be a suitable environment. Last, is it wise to give someone access to guns and equipment that is suffering from a mental illness? I seriously though he was joking - he wasnt. Unbelievable. He didnt listen or suggest help. Gave him a low dose of prozac which didnt make any difference and only caused him more anxiety by requiring him to endure useless counseling.read more

Certainly better than majority of psychiatrists in the US. He isnt just a drug pusher to those extremely vulnerable. He... knows you, gives advise, suggests supplements and your prognosis. I like honesty which is hard to find in medical profession in upstate New York—honestly. He’s a mensch.read more

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a safe and effective treatment for people who have not achieved remission from depression with antidepressants alone.

What is NeuroStar TMS Therapy?

NeuroStar TMS is an FDA-cleared therapy that targets key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression.

It helps activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters using a non-invasive magnetic field, and is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).

During a NeuroStar treatment session, a magnet similar in strength to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine is used to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.

These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) is safe and easy to tolerate. Because it is not a depression drug, NeuroStar TMS Therapy does not have the same side effects that are associated with traditional antidepressant medications. More than 1.6 million treatments have been performed with NeuroStar, further proving its safety and tolerability record.5,12

If you agree with two or more of these statements, NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) may be right for you.

  • Depression symptoms have interfered with my daily life.
  • I am not satisfied with the results I get from depression medication.
  • I have had or worry about side effects from depression medications.
  • I have switched medications for depression due to side effects.
  • I am interested in a proven, non-drug therapy for depression.

I was referred to the practice of Dr. Mahipal Chaudhri, MD, by the CANANDAIGUA Veterans Administration Medical Center. I had previously been a patient of the Veterans Administration since 1998 (Combat PTSD - Army). I had exhausted ALL available uni polar AND bi polar medications prescribed to me for the past 20 years. ALL pharmaceuticals available and trialed failed to provide therapeutic value to manage severe depression. With no available treatment remaining in the VA’s grasp, TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation), was authorized outside the VA System. I was introduced to Dr. Mahipal Chaudhri and wife Anu. I qualified for the TMS treatment protocol offered by Dr. Chaudhri and began a 6 week, every day regiment of holistic psychiatry. By session #3, I maxed the stimulation intensity offered by the technology resulting in my initial treatment of 45 minutes being reduced to a mere 20 minutes per session thereafter. Worried about pain? Take your index finger, tap your temple for 4 seconds, release for a 12 second rest period, repeat same process for a minimum of 20 minutes / maximum of 45 minutes. Watch TV or talk to wife Anu for the session duration. After a series of treatments (not many) trust me, you might even fall asleep during the process. It’s just THAT easy!  Results...varies per patient. For me...initial notice of change after 3rd treatment. Definitive notice of change (mood, level of depression, anxiety, drive, focus, etc.) after 4th week of treatment. Completion of 6 week treatment protocol...no signs of depression, anxiety, mania, mood change, etc.  Took the MMPI-2 diagnostic exam prior to TMS and immediately after...comparative study  results: severe, debilitating, depression, mania, mood fluctuation PRIOR to TMS commencement. 0% evidence of depression, mania, mood fluctuation AFTER TMS protocol. And here it comes folks...withdrew completely from medications AUGUST 10, 2018 while in treatment!  As of this writing,  3 and 2/3 months completely free of pharmaceuticals!!!  Invest your time with Dr. and Mrs. Mahipal Chaudhri to see if you are qualified for this procedure. I more than understand what you are enduring NOW. I lived it for 20 years. I am free of that daily misery. I have MY life back. I owe my present and future to this wonderful couple. Just call and see for yourself. Best of luck to all who review this testimonial. There is hope...explore the TMS option available to you.

Michael, Patient
