George Tun, MD: Medication Management and TMS
Dr. Tun is a psychiatrist with a strong academic foundation and experience working with patients from many different socioeconomic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. Although raised in the US, Dr. Tun himself was born in Myanmar and spent significant time there, learning about his heritage, of the suffering of inequality and the peace in Buddhist thinking. He holds the view that mind, body, and spirit are one and that true recovery can only come from a unified integrative and holistic approach. He looks forward to working with each patient to develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to their unique history, beliefs, and body chemistry.
Feeling better and finally finding peace is only half the battle, as we all struggle to stay the course and maintain our recovery over time. Dr. Tun continues to support patients after they respond to treatments, to ensure continued recovery so they can remain strong and continue to have a full and enriching life.
Dr. Tun is particularly interested in the interface between psychology and neurology, and that is one of the connections that drew him to the potential uses of TMS. He is attracted to new and emerging technology and treatments for treating his patients.
