Welcome to Saad A. Shakir M.D. & Associates
Integrated Clinical Neurosciences and Silicon Valley TMS
An Integrated Approach to Mental Healthcare
Our mission at Integrated Clinical Neurosciences and Saad A. Shakir, M.D. and Associates is to provide a full range of integrated neuropsychiatric services to individuals in our community based on in-depth assessments, education, and collaboration with our referring professional community. We are proud to provide the highest ethical and professional standards of care, cost-effective treatment, and a collaborative partnership with individuals, families, and clinicians.
Our philosophy emphasizes wellness, lifestyle modifications, and the latest and most modern advances in medicine and counseling. Our staff has many cultural backgrounds and experiences that translates into a very respectful and understanding environment of care for all cultures and backgrounds.
We also provide patients in the surrounding Bay Area the latest in evidence-based depression treatments. We are pleased to be able to offer Neurostar® TMS Therapy and Brainsway Deep TMS Therapy to our patients. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy is one of the most technologically advanced depression treatments available. This non-invasive, outpatient therapy is FDA cleared and has helped thousands of depression patients who have not received adequate results from antidepressants.
We also offer Ketamine treatments for depression, a cutting edge treatment currently helping patients with treatment-resistant depression (TRD) manage their symptoms and find relief.
Starting March 2018, we at Silicon Valley TMS will begin treatment using Silicon Valley “Neuro-Navigated TMS”. This system will allow us to manage more treatment resistant patients who don’t respond to the usual TMS process as well as treat other areas of the brain that might be the culprit for the resistance. It will also allow us to start treating other conditions with TMS including Neuropathic pain, Tinnitus, auditory hallucinations, OCD, Addictions, ADHD, Parkinsonian tremor and other evolving conditions. Neuro-Navigated TMS is an exciting technology that will lead to better, more personalized treatment of depression and other conditions.
