Specialties

Dr. Robert A Forinash has the following 2 specialties

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

  • Addiction Medicine

    An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
    These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

10 years, dealing with Trauma, PTSD, and cycles of depression

My family has been seeing him throughout some of the most challenging hardships. If your looking for someone who will listen and tell you how it is and give you suggestions and guidance to getting your life back his is the guy. Throwing pills at you and saying here is not his style. So don't drug seek here. This processional wants you to get better and will still be there if you stumble no matter how many times. Warning he gets harder on you at times! He says the things you might need to hear, but dont want to at times

The Many Faces of Dr. Forinash

Dr. Forinash is never the same way to me twice. One time is is for a medicine and the next time he isn't. He is always kind but is that sincere? I think not. I'm no longer comfortable that he has my best interest in mind nor does he truly understand how to treat panic/anxiety disorder.

Typical quick visit

Typical clinic racket. See the patient for 5 minutes, write a prescription and send him on his way so they can see as many patients as possible and make the most profit. Who cares about the patient, right ?
