Walter Duffy, MD, President and CEO of Premier Psych TMS, is pleased to announce the opening of Premier Psych TMS in West Omaha. Services at this location include Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy, behavioral health diagnostic evaluations, pharmacogenetic testing for individualized treatment, and medication management. The office will be located at 17021 Lakeside Hills Drive, Suite 201.
Dr. Walter Duffy is excited to bring TMS therapy to the Omaha community. He has provided over 2,098 TMS therapy sessions to patients in Lincoln, NE, since first offering the treatment in April, 2011. “We’ve seen a remarkable improvement in the quality of life in many patients,” Dr. Duffy said. “It is wonderful to offer another effective treatment option. Close to 80% of the 84 patients treated have significant improvement in mood, energy, and motivation.”
In addition to TMS, Premier Psych TMS offers a revolutionary lab test based on pharmacogenetics, the study of the genetic factors that influence an individual’s response to drug treatments. “Testing a person’s DNA can provide important insights which can guide the provider in selecting the most effective medication with the lowest probability of adverse side effects” said Dr. Duffy.
Walter Duffy, MD and Bob Lundholm, APRN-NP are excited to welcome new patients of all age ranges to the Omaha office. In addition to TMS and pharmacogenetic testing, services will include diagnostic evaluation and medication management. Dr. Duffy is board certified in Child/Adolescent and Adult Psychiatry. Bob is a Board Certified Family Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.
In addition to the new office in Omaha, Premier Psych has locations in Lincoln, Nebraska City, Seward, Hastings, York and provides telehealth behavioral services to various sites across Nebraska. Premier Psych is also involved in a variety of clinical research studies.
