When patients come to see me as a clinician — whether it’s through my private practice or doing clinical research — most of those patients come in with a mood disorder — whether that’s major depression or whether it’s bipolar disorder — and they’re either looking for some verification of a diagnosis and/or treatment.
We follow patients for sometimes 10 years doing clinical research where we provide either personalized treatment, or sometimes something very specific — like a vagus nerve stimulator that we helped bring to market by doing our clinical trials. And we’ve seen patients sustain their improvement of their depression for years and years. And so it’s really bringing cutting-edge treatments to the patients and allowing those patients to experience some relief of their depression.
