Dr. Keating attended medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and received his training in psychiatry from the Albert Einstein Medical Center as well as Alleghany General Hospital. Dr. Keating has also had previous affiliations with the Philadelphia Psychoanalytic Center. There he acquired four years of advanced training in psychotherapy. In his practice, he works with a wide range of mental health issues including anxiety, depression, addictions and even the more complex thought disorders. Dr. Keating is unique in his holistic approach to healing, seeking less invasive methods such as attempting to liberate patients from conflict through the use of psychodynamic techniques. This blend of psychiatric and psychological intervention sets Dr. Keating apart from his contemporaries. Dr. Keating is understanding and non-judgmental in his clinical practice. He takes time in knowing his patients and joins with them to develop a comprehensive plan to improve and sustain optimal health. Unlike many psychiatrists whose primary focus is on pharmacological intervention, Dr. Keating cares to help people understand both the medical and emotional components of their disease, recognizing that most answers lie within the patients themselves. He encourages insight and authenticity for those in pursuit of personal growth.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Keating couldn't be better. He is professional, knowledgeable, considerate, listens, and provides incredible guidance.
Excellent guy. Easy to talk to, comforting, and smart. Would recommend.
Very helpful and flexible
Only way to contact him is by phone and he doesn't respond to messages. Impossible to contact him or to get help with medication. Wouldn't recommend.
Dr. Keating is amazing! It was so comforting that he has a great sense of humor which relaxed me. It was my 1st visit to a psychiatrist and I was nervous and axnious. He immediately put me at ease -- I would recommend him to anyone!
I can't recommend Dr. Keating enough. All of the positive feedback you've read is true. He's unbelievably kind, engaging, and thorough. Truly found a gem in this doctor!
My visit was so much better than I could have expected. He is a highly intelligent person with more knowledge of people and their problems; cares so much about inner feelings ~ doing a great job with having the patient relax and feel confident. I wld refer him Anytime
Dr Keating was excellent. Knowledgeable and caring.
Dr. Keating was very friendly and easy to open up to. First appointments with a psychiatrist can be pretty technical, but Dr. Keating was very engaging and made things more interesting. I feel like we accomplished a lot for a first appointment. He has very good energy and it is apparent that he cares about the well-being of his patients.
Incredibly insightful and emotionally compassionate. It was like being in a mental light bulb factory.
Felt extremely comfortable, and felt like he got to know me through asking the right questions. Overall, he has a great approach of understanding the complexities of people and underlying factors of emotions and behaviors.
Dr Keating is very warm and made me feel very comfortable talking about everything.
I've waited a long time to see a psychiatrist and felt confident about meeting with Dr. Keating after reading his reviews. He was spectacular, not just as a doctor but as a person. Genuine, open-minded and realistic in our conversation, it was very easy to speak with him and about treatment options, which can be a sensitive topic for some like me. Looking forward to the results that Dr. Keating helps me with!
Dr. Keating is the type of doctor I have been searching for all these years! I have only had one visit with him so far but I feel very comfortable with him. He is very attentive and I can tell he really cares about his patients. He took the time to get to know me, I spent an hour with him, which is different than the usual 15 minutes other psychiatrists would give me. I appreciate his efforts in figuring out what the best treatment plan for me is. I am looking forward to my next appointment!
Francis opened my eyes to the possibility that a psychiatrist can actually serve as a therapist and seem down to earth while still serving the main purpose of figuring out the right meds for me. I feel hopeful again about my mental diagnosis and I enjoyed my appointment more than he may realize. I feel so good now. He saw me a lot longer than I expected him to (over 2 hours!) I look forward to seeing him again.
great! really listened. great combo of psychotherapy and psychiatry. highly recommend.
He really took the time to talk to me to diagnose what was actually wrong with me. Got me on the right medication.
Dr Keating has a holistic approach and he is not afraid to call you out on your bullshit in the kindest and most polished way possible. He is attentive and cares about his patients. He is intelligent, funny, warm and intuitive
He is wise and joyful, kind of like Buddha. If I ever were a psychiatrist, I would want to operate like him.
After Many psychiatrists visit disappointed, Dr keating really make the different. Great listener,and he make the perfect questions to find out how to help his patients. I was really happy with my visit.!!!
He was very caring, listened more to me than any other psychiatrist I had in the past, provided excellent and thoughtful feedback.
He is a great guy! I highly recommend him!
He spent time with me, listening to any questions and concerns and got a detailed, relevant history. He might have been the best doctor out of every speciality I've ever been to! Highly recommend him
Dr Keating was awesome, very knowledgeable, gives you multiple options and very professional.
I was very apprehensive in anticipation of my first appointment. However, upon meeting Dr. Keating my fears were put to rest. It was easy to share personal and sensitive information with him, and he has a great sense of humor. His approach facilitated an experience of collaboration, and I am hopeful that the resulting treatment plan will be effective. Two thumbs up!
Very friendly, approachable, good sense of humor. Put me at ease right away. Didn't talk down to me. Explained his thought process as to why he was making his recommendations. I really liked him, I would highly recommend him!
Very inspirational and a great speaker. Empathetic & caring.
I would go back to Dr. Keating, but I changed insurers and now he is out of network.
Francis is great! While he is a psychiatrist by training, I have been seeing him for over a year for talk therapy. He's a good listener, I get along with him very well, and he is always willing to focus on what I feel like discussing at the moment. Have already suggested him to friends and will continue doing so!
A very nice, and caring doctor.
Always a pleasure to see Dr. Keating. His warm heart fills the air, and I always feel welcomed, and listened to. Best psychiatrist I had ever had, and trust me, I had a few!!
This was a really nice experience the doctor was really great. I do not have to wait he took me as soon as I arrive . He really took the time out to find the best way to help me out and I greatly appreciate that about him. Thank you Dr francis Keating
Terrific experience seeing Dr. Keating for the length of my treatment - highly recommend!!
First visit - however he was great! Listened thoroughly, very easy to talk to. Based on a single visit which is likely not typical, I would definitely recommend. Would expect future visits would be just as pleasant and helpful- definitely solutions oriented and interested in positive outcome.
Really enjoyed the doctor. I had never done this before and he made me feel at ease. He takes insurance, which is rare and great. I think he listened well and tried to start me on the path to solving some of the issues I've been having. Great guy!
I arrived for my first appointment half an hour early, but Dr. Keating saw me right away and continued our session until the scheduled end time, giving me an extra half hour and being very thorough with his evaluation. He is funny, easy to talk to and was very accepting of my non traditional lifestyle. He took time explaining different medication options and I left feeling comfortable with the medication we agreed on. I am excited for my next appointment. Dr. Keating made the daunting experience of seeking mental health help for the first time far better than I had expected!
He listens very well, is willing to work with patients, respects their rights, and offers good advice. Thank you Doc!!!
Dr. Keating was amazing. I arrived more than ten minutes late because I couldn't find the address and he still took his time with me, which is rare for a psychiatrist. He was knowledgeable and validated my experiences with other medications helping me to find the right fit for me. I highly recommend Dr. Keating.
very nice doctor :)
Dr Keating is very kind funny and comforting. He takes time to get to know you. Already after 1 meeting I feel in good hands
Dr. Keating was very attentive and easy to talk to.
Dr. Keating is awesome! First of all he is hilarious. He made my first appointment very comfortable. He was very thorough with getting to know me, my situation, and needs. He seems like he knows what he's talking about and doesn't try rushing you out the door like most docs do. He's great and I give him 5 stars. Somewhat looking forward to my next appointment.
Dr. Keating was friendly and attentive. My visit couldn't have been better and I would highly recommend him.
It's always a toss up going to see a new doctor, but I couldn't have been more pleased with my choice! Dr. Keating was very easy to talk to and I felt as if I had known him for years, and he was relatable as far as understanding everything I was saying. My last doctor was an elderly woman and it didn't feel like she could relate to some of the things I was dealing with. I would highly recommend Dr. Keating and I'm excited to go back.
I thought no one would be able to help with my problem but Dr. Keating made me work toward healing. Thank you, Dr. Keating!
Best Doctor I have ever had. He just is a down to earth and cool guy that understands his patients
Very kind and professional. Takes an honest interest in you and your care.
Excellent visit overall
It's only been 1 visit, but my initial impression of Dr. Keating is very positive.
Absolutely fantastic experience, I am looking forward to my next visit. Very personable, intellegent and professional while keeping things light and humorous at the right moments. Dr. Keating understands how to get the most out of the time and makes immediate progress so after leaving you feeling like you have a direction.
After one hour I think he already knows me better than I know myself. I highly recommend him.
Great service, would highly recommend. Does a great job making you feel comfortable as a patient.
First appointment went well, detailed history, very friendly, etc. Upped a dosage of a medication I was already on. Second appointment: reviewed medication, changed to a new one. No conversation. Whole appointment lasted 12 minutes. The next drug gave me severe and lasting side effects. Had great difficulty contacting this guy, eventually got through, he told me to quit cold turkey and call him back in 7 days. I called him back 7 days later and scheduled an appointment with a new psychiatrist after not getting a response for 36 hours. Seems like a nice guy but doesn't really care when things go poorly. Would not recommend.
Very personable and trustworthy
He is one of the greatest people that you could possibly let alone help you. You never feel like you are just another patient.
Very, very impressive - extremely knowledgeable with an excellent and engaging bedside manner - a rare and nuique combination.
