  4. 4. 5 “Each TMS Health Partners’ facility is designed to enhance patient treatments by providing a high-quality environment for both employees and patients. Care has been taken to ensure that consult and treatment rooms are designed to give physicians and clinicians the physical tools they need to effectively and efficiently deliver treatments in a positive and professional work environment. Most importantly, the patient experience has been carefully considered from the moment they walk in the door through the conclusion of their treatment. This includes pleasant and welcoming reception and waiting areas to help transition patients from the outside world and make them more comfortable and ready for treatment. Similarly, treatment and consult rooms have been conceived as warm, calm and natural spaces that will provide an inspiring and relaxing, non-clinical environment throughout the course of the multiple visits required for effective treatment.” -- Josh Heitler Clinic Design
