Dr. Francis Keating, DO

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

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.

He is a very nice guy but strange. Maybe too playful bedside manner for some people. Sometimes hard to get ahold of.

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.

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 onwhat I feel like discussing at the moment. Have already suggested him to friends and will continue doing so!

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, itwas 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 hereally 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 mymental 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.

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.

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 isfunny, 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!

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 medicationshelping me to find the right fit for me. I highly recommend Dr. Keating.
