Dr. Damayo and her staff have treated several family members. All have seen progress and we would never go anywhere else for care. We met Dr. Damayo in the ICU when my child was in a coma from straterra (serotonin syndrome) from another doctor at another PG facility. Dr. Damayo continues excellent care for all. Rick and Dan are also excellent.

We take a holistic approach that looks at all aspects of the patient’s lifestyle. Integrative treatment can include talk therapy, nutritional plans, exercise plans, mindfulness, and meditation.

Talk Therapy

Also called “psychotherapy”, talk therapy involves speaking 1 on 1 with one of our professionally trained and licensed therapist to find relief from emotional distress and seek solutions to your life’s problems.

TMS is an FDA-cleared, non-drug and safe treatment option for people with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). TMS is covered by most insurances and provides long lasting relief from depression.
