It could have been a simple meeting to exchange work related ideas between friends, but it has lead to tremendous relief for people dealing with treatment resistant depression. When Ara Chackerian, together with his long time business partner discussed ways of helping people dealing with depressive disorder, they found the scarcity in its awareness startling. With outstanding experience in building health care companies, they met Dr. Richard Bermudas, a preeminent leader in transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) who explained to them the structural impediment to provide treatment. They formed a partnership and set out to employ their experience to at least bring about change. You can visit his about.me
Ara Chackerian employed the expertise of Josh Heitler in designing unique facilities that wouldn’t appeal to patients and even physicians as typical hospitals or rehabilitation centers. Instead, they are unique 3000 square feet facilities containing consultation rooms as well as TMS treatment rooms. In these, a patient gets the feel of serenity and relaxation as they undergo treatment, in the process ensuring positive outcomes for them and the physicians. Since the formation of this partnership, Ara Chackerian and his partners have built seven such facilities in the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento.
Entering clinical psychiatry, they first dealt with physician education under TMS Health Education concept. This was kicked off by a three day educational symposium that oversaw training of the physicians. This eventually led to the business enjoying the recruitment of the best physicians and hence the success and good reputation for the brand.
