Specialties

Dr. Anthony M Larocco Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Infectious Disease

    An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
    Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
    Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Unprofessional and rude

I went to Dr Larocco for a diagnosed MRSA infection. The first time I saw him I waited over an hour. When I finally saw him, it was fine. But test results online conflicted with verbal results and I never received a follow-up call to answer questions I had called about later. When the MRSA recurred I went back, and although the wait was 5 minutes I left in tears because of his rude and unprofessional behavior. I am 30 years old but have to have gum graft surgery because the treatments for the MRSA thus far have destroyed my gums, yet he responded by rolling his eyes at my questions, telling me I had to "learn to live with [the infection]", and insisting on testing me for HIV even though I told him on more than one occasion that there was no chance in the world that I have it. I left feeling belitted, despairing of ever having a normal life again, and insulted because I was treated like I was an idiot and a liar. I have already reported him and will be finding a new doctor who is willing to treat me like an intelligent human being and help me get back to normal!
