ServicesDr. Lara sees patients at TMS Health Solutions clinic in Burlingame. TMS Health Solutions is a leading outpatient psychiatry group practice. Dedicated to freeing patients from the burden of mental illness, the practice is focused on depression and is Northern California's leading provider of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a highly effective, FDA-cleared, non-invasive therapy for patients who haven't responded to antidepressants and other treatments. Additionally, the clinics offer comprehensive psychiatry services, including medication management, for people with clinical depression and other mental health conditions. The clinics accept most major insurance plans and there are locations throughout Northern California.Additional ServicesI provide full psychiatric services, including prescribing and monitoring medication for patients with a Major Depressive Disorder. I am focused on Advanced Depression, also called Clinical Depression, and for patients who are seeking an alternative treatment for their depressive symptoms, I provide TMS treatment for depression. Many patients may have tried antidepressants and cannot tolerate the antidepressant side effects they may be experiencing, or they are searching for a non-medication treatment for depression. TMS therapy is an innovative treatment that in non-invasive and may help with these people who may have treatment-resistant depression (TRD). Sometimes patients with TRD will benefit from a combination of medication and TMS therapy, and I will work with patients to find the right combination to relieve their depression.
