Ara Chackerian continues to do great work in the medical field. He has partnered with another business person in order to build outpatient diagnostic radiology centers. His organization has opened several of these facilities throughout Northern California. Chackerian then began to look into the outpatient psychiatry area. He came across a device that was being used to treat depression called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, otherwise known as TMS. Ara believes that TMS would be a critical addition to psychiatric care, which would go along with medication and talk therapy. The treatments have been successful in treating depressive disorders so far. Chackerian has gone on to find out why such methods have been so inaccessible to patients in need.
Ara Chackerian spoke with several doctors who informed him that the TMS treatment is hard to administer with the limited insurance policies that are available. Doctors also had issues with staffing there clinics with qualified technicians to operate the equipment needed to treat patients effectively. Chackerian has made it his priority to work with doctors in this capacity in order to bring effective treatment to the people who need it the most.
