TMS at Square Medical
Square TMS offers a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment to begin your treatment. As part of our platform, you will be under the supervision of a trained psychiatrist.
A Little History
Square Medical Group, then known as Square Psychiatry, was launched in 2008 by Natalie Lender, M.D. to treat patients with behavioral health and substance abuse diagnoses. Dr. Lender’s prior experience working with this patient population in multiple hospitals around the state encouraged her to try and create her own patient care model. Since then the organization has grown into two integrated facilities specializing in primary care and behavioral health. As our staff and provider family has grown over the years, we have committed ourselves to maintaining our steadfast dedication to patient care and innovation.
