Initial Consultation
Your journey begins with an initial consultation with your primary psychiatrist.
During this meeting, your psychiatrist will assess your condition, discuss your symptoms, and review your medical history to determine if ECT is a suitable treatment option for you.
Second Opinion
Following the initial consultation, you will meet with another psychiatrist from our group.
This second opinion serves to ensure that you fully understand the ECT procedure, its potential benefits, and any associated risks. It also provides an additional layer of evaluation to ensure that ECT is the right choice for your specific needs.

Scheduling and Authorization
Once ECT is approved, our ECT Coordinator will schedule your sessions.
They will also work closely with your insurance provider to obtain authorization for the procedure, making the process as seamless as possible for you.
Medical Clearance
Before ECT, you'll need medical clearance, including lab tests, x-rays, and an ECG.
These tests are essential to ensure your safety during the procedure. You may receive clearance either from our primary care team or from your own primary care physician (PCP).

How It Works

At OneMed, our commitment to patient care extends beyond the treatment phase. We provide comprehensive support, including counseling services, medication management, and ongoing follow-up care to ensure sustained well-being.

Treatment Sessions
After clearance, our ECT Coordinator schedules sessions at Advent Health.
Treatment sessions are typically scheduled on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The number of sessions required varies for each individual, but most patients start experiencing improvement after 6-8 sessions.
