Specialties

Dr. Frank S Floca has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

I have seen Dr. Floca for years for my depression.

I have seen Dr. Floca for years for my depression and he was the only Dr. I found that could get it under control. My life has changed for the better since i have been under his care. He explained to me the side effects of my medication and directions on how to take the medication. I felt he genuinely cares for me as a patient. I would strongly recommend Dr. Floca . I plan on keeping him as my doctor for as long as possible as I have chronic depression and the only time I have felt relief has been with Dr. Floca's knowledge on my medication and medical conditions.

Watch Out!! Over Medicates

This doctor needs to lose his license. He over medicates and over charges his patients. My father was healthy but was diaonoised with early signs of Dementia and placed in a nursing home. In less than two months this doctor had prescribed 5 mind altering drugs, causing my father to become extremely weak, suffering from diarrhea and dehydration. After removing my father from this home and taking him to a new doctor, I was told these drugs were poisoning him. He was over charging us 200% for the drug we are now paying $8.00 for. Do your research on this doctor as it is true that he speaks around the country on behalf of pharmaceutical companies.

Wish there was someone else

The doctor in my father's nursing home asked this doctor to see my dad. He has dementia. Tis doctor took weeks to see my dad and no one called me to tell me when he was coming so I could be there. When I called the office, the person on the other line did not know what was going on. And then I found out a nurse and not this doctor saw my dad. Then my dad was started on 3 different medicines at the same time. He started to complain of a stomach ache and he stopped eating and I called this doctor and no one ever called me back. But they were really fast at getting the bills out to me. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone at all. If your loved one needs to see this doctor, make sure you are there so that something doesn't get done that ends up taking weeks or months to fix, like my dad. My dad lost 8 pounds because of the medicine and then I had to argue about stopping the medicine. The nurse acted like I was neglecting my father because I didn't want the medicine; I wanted my dad to eat! If you don't eat, what does the rest matter?
