What is rTMS?

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain, targeting areas involved with mood control and depression. 

The equipment used in TMS is FDA-cleared to treat depression, and in 2016, TRICARE approved coverage for rTMS therapy to treat adults with Major Depressive Disorder.

Dr. Awodele is proud to bring this breakthrough technology to the area. And because of 
his experience during his active duty with the United States Navy, Dr. Awodele has made it a priority to accept TRICARE, TriWest, and TRICARE for Life insurance.

TRICARE offers our military personnel, veterans, and their families comprehensive healthcare coverage. Our clinic accepts the following: 

  • TRICARE West for active-duty service members, retirees, and their family members.
  • TriWest (VA Community Care Network) for veterans and certain National Guard and Reserves members.
  • TRICARE for Life, for those with Medicare and TRICARE.

“Dr. Awodele is incredibly informative and provides detailed instructions for how to get TRICARE to cover the treatment. Plus, he is very attentive and patient.” – Joshua B.

I have been a military physician for most of my career. And I have seen a lot of functional marines and sailors with Chronic Fatigue, Depression, Anxiety, TBI, and PTSD who didn’t seek treatment because they felt physically strong or didn’t want to take medications due to their operational status. I have also witnessed close friends report exhaustion and near helplessness. Witnessing firsthand their transformation after receiving MeRT treatment made me a believer in its effectiveness.”
