The following testimonial was given by Medical Doctor and Senior Psychiatrist Margus Lõokene.
Dr. Lõokene has been working as a senior psychiatrist since 2010, and has been regularly using Sooma tDCS to treat patients with mood disorders since autumn 2016. His general opinion of tDCS is as follows:
“I now see tDCS as an effective and safe treatment option in psychiatry and am more than convinced that there’s a great future for this method”
So far, Dr. Lõokene has been using Sooma tDCS for clinical purposes, mainly for mood disorders, but also for anxiety and ADHD. As for the effects, he states that
“We have seen various outcomes on efficacy since we started to use tDCS in our clinic, but overall the results have been good”
And for the most noticeable differences observed in patients during and after Sooma tDCS therapy, Dr. Lõokene states that
“…the first thing we notice is the reduced anxiety […] later on patients get more emotional, active and after treatment we often get feedback from patients that they are functioning better in every day life, including work and social activities”
Finally, Dr Lõokene says that he
“…surely would recommend tDCS to patients”
and that in practice, he does so often. In his option, tDCS as a treatment option is effective, very safe and well tolerated with no serious adverse effects.
