1280 720 Dr Rozina Lakhani

Recently I had a patient with severe depression and suicidal thoughts. We had tried all sorts of treatment, including medications and TMS. I believed that ECT could help him. But one of his family members was against it as she had heard misinformation in the media. She would not come to the office for me to share the right information. So her loved one doesn’t have to suffer when a treatment could help him. Therefore I decided to do a program for her and everyone like her. ECT Therapy for Depression
