Hey, Jim Wallace here.
Thanks for visiting my web page.
I am pleased to introduce an important addition to my practice, the new to Augusta, high tech, highly effective treatment modality called TMS, or transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy. I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve read about TMS in the news or heard about it on television.
I will continue to provide a wide range of psychiatric services to my patients, and I’m very excited about being able to also offer TMS. It is an effective non-drug psychiatric treatment, and it has none of the systemic side effects which are so common with medications. It has been well tested, and is, of course, FDA approved.
You’ll find more information about transcranial magnetic stimulation by mashing the TMS button in the menu at the top of this page, or by visiting TMS Augusta.
I’m online so that people searching for a psychiatrist in Augusta, Georgia, have a better chance of finding one. Some lists of psychiatrists, Augusta, Georgia, include doctors who left town many years ago. I’ve been in the private practice of psychiatry in Augusta, Georgia, since 1985. I plan to stay here.
Some of my patients are advised to see me, either by one of their doctors or by a family member. Some just decide on their own to seek my help. Many of my patients seem to have checked me out with someone before making an appointment. I certainly don’t blame them – it’s a big deal going to a psychiatrist, and you want to pick the right one for you.
I try to keep in mind something that Thomas Edison said in 1903, “The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” We’re not there yet – medications still have their place – but we’re getting there. One of my goals is to help my patients actually avoid future, repetitive episodes of psychiatric illnesses, and to fully recover. This means I want them to go beyond what can be done with medicines. I know that medicines are oftentimes necessary, but the best they usually do is allow people to be well enough off so that real healing can be attempted.
Maybe this web page will help you or someone you know with the process of understanding who I am, what I offer, and how to pick a psychiatrist right for you.
