“I’m looking for a TMS doctor near me.”
Meet Dr. David Woo, MD
Dr. David Woo (a proud member of the Clinical TMS Society) is certified in Psychiatry and Geriatric Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. He completed his residency and a fellowship at the Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City after receiving his Doctorate in Medicine from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. After completing his fellowship, he stayed on as an Attending Psychiatrist at the Beth Israel Outpatient Psychiatric Clinic, where he contributed to research on depression and received the Philip Hauptman Award for Excellence in Teaching.
Dr. Woo has been seeing patients in private practice since 2002, always with the goals of combining evidence-based medicine with psychodynamic psychotherapy and collaborating with other mental health professionals to ensure the best possible outcomes for his patients. These objections led him to Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy in 2017, when he obtained extensive training and certification to administer the procedure in his practice from the Neurostar TMS Therapy system. His greatest clinical interests include helping patients suffering from depression, anxiety, and obsessive compulsive disorder.
Dr. Woo currently practices on Madison Avenue, in Midtown Manhattan. His New York City TMS practice specializes in helping patients who haven’t found relief from depression symptoms through traditional methods achieve remission.
