Specialties

Dr. Mark A Lokitus 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.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

There must be another Dr. Lokitus

These comments about Dr. Lokitus caring about what his patients said couldn't be further from the truth of my own experience. It was more like he was just reading off a checklist. Example " Dr. Lokitus, I just cut my arm off in your waiting room". Response " mm hmm and do you want to stay at the same dosage."

Dr. Lokitus is a very good doctor, empathetic, and very easy to talk to. I do not like his office location, atmosphere in general and his and almost non-existent staff. His part-time office secretary is often times rude and completely insensitive to the needs of the patient. While office "policies" are very important to running any business operation, the one size fits all rules do not always apply especially when prescription drugs are concerned. Sometimes circumstances come up where scheduled appointments have to be changed or rescheduled. Under normal circumstances, doctor prescribed daily medication regiments are not changed unless they are approved by the doctor. If you are prescribed a 30 day supply medication and cannot get a refill after 30 days, the patient is then subjected to potential and harmful withdrawal symptoms. If you cannot get an appointment in a timely manner, at least give the patient enough medication until they can be seen by the doctor.

Kind,Caring,Knowledgable

Dr. Locitus is extremely easy to talk to and has helped me through some extremely rough times in my life. I have struggled with mental illness and addiction throughout my life and with his help, I am alive and living a good life. He is willing to get me on the schedule when I am struggling without any problem. His assistant Cheryl, is both helpful,kind, and a genuinely supportive person. I wouldn't go anywhere else to be treated and am very grateful.

Not that great

He is nice, that I will say about him. However, if he can't find the right medicine right away, he seems to be unable to find one that is right. On my last appointment, I mentioned that the medicine wasn't working. He appeared not to hear or understand and just gave me the same one. Also his receptionist can be extreme and nasty. She gets offended if a patient is upset. She seems to be unable to understand that she is working at a psychiatrist's office and is unable to handle emotional patients without becoming mean and rude.
