Youngstown neurologist and psychiatrist, Dr. Robert J. Brocker Jr., was arrested and booked into the Mahoning County Jail on a public indecency charge.

Brocker was arrested on Thursday morning while attempting to solicit teenage girls for “sexual activity” in the Youngstown area, according to Youngstown police.


Brocker works as a neurologist at several local hospitals, including St. Elizabeth Boardman Health Center, St. Elizabeth Health Center and St. Joseph Health Center, according to Mercy Health’s website. source

Neurologists diagnose and treat disorders of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, muscles, and the involuntary nervous system that controls the heart, lungs and other organs. They treat headaches, stroke, dementia, seizures, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, sleep disorders and neuromuscular diseases.

Brocker received “one star” review from a self-verified patient on March 6th, 2016:

Doctor is very rude and does not show any sympathy towards his patients! Patient comes to Doctor very scared and even argues with loved ones that attend appointment. My husband asked questions and doctor was very stern and didn’t want to listen to our concerns. We both left even more confused and frightened about patients diagnosis and progress. source
