Dr. Frank H. Rorick,
Bellevue Hospital, New York City,
Ably assisted by a full corps of competent physicians and surgeons, treats with unparalelled [sic] success all Chronic, Nervous, Skin and Blood diseases of every nature upon the latest scientific principles. He particularly invites all whose cases have been neglected, badly treated, or pronounced incurable. Patients who are doing well under the care of their own physicians need not call on us, as our province is to treat those who cannot find relief otherwise. No money required of responsible parties to commence treatment.
COMMON SENSE A S APPLIED TO MEDICINE. It Is well known by all intelligent observers that it is impossible for any person, no matter how highly endowed by nature or acquirements, to become thoroughly conversant with all the divisions of the science of medicine. Nearly all who have attained distinction in medicine have made some special department their life work, being fitted therefor by natural adaptation or selection, special education and experience. The doctor having devoted several years to the special study of chronic diseases in hospitals and general practice, and having the most recent and improved instruments for finding out diseased conditions in the organs of the body, he proposes to devote the whole of his time to the practice of these specialties. He adopts the following plan, which is peculiar to the large hospitals, and is not and never has been the practice of country doctors: He carefully notes the symptoms of the patient, ascertains the condition of the internal organs, examines the Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat by the most approved instruments and methods, all of which he carefully records in his register for future reference. In this way, he ascertains the true nature of the disease and its cause. Knowing the disease, he knows the changes it produces in the tissues, and, knowing the changes, he checks them with specific remedies, and places his patient on the high road to recovery. When sick people consult him he readily tells them whether he can cure or help them, or if they are beyond hope.
The examinations are in accordance with anatomical and physical science as he will convince the most skeptical. By an examination he will convince anyone of the nature and exten- [sic] of disease, amount of danger to life, and chance of a perfect cure. Believing that science is truth and “truth is mighty and will prevail” when known, and knowing that disease can be cured with positive certainty, he invites the afflicted to call and receive advice free and be cured of their diseases There is no subject that requires so much study and experience as the treatment and cure of chronic diseases. The astonishing success and remarkable cures performed by him is due to a thorough knowledge of the structure and functions of the human system, and the cure of diseases by their natural remedies. Let those given up by others call for examination. He has successfully treated the following diseases since his arrival in this state: Eye and Ear diseases, Chronic Diarrhea, Chronic Inflammation of the Womb, Chronic Inflammation of the Bladder, Painful or irregular Menstruation, Fever Sores and Ulcers, Incontinence of Urine, Tape Worms, Crooked Limbs and Enlarged Joints, Spinal Curvatures, Club Foot, Hip Joint Disease, White Swelling, Discharging Abscesses, Barrenness, Nervousness and General Debility, Impotency, Diseases of the Kidneys and Bladder, Leucorrhea or Whites, Blotches, Pimples, Skin Diseases, Dyspepsia, Constipation, Dropsy, Cancer, Epileptic Fits, Erysipelas, Gravel, Goitre, Gleet, Gonorrhea, Hydrocele, Heart Disease, Headache, Piles, Hysteria, Syphilis, St. Vitus Dance, Chronic Dysentery, Fistula in Ano, Hernia or Rupture, Ovarian Tumors, Paralysis, Prolapsus Uteri, Bronchitis, Asthma, Catarrh, Scrofula, Consumption, Chronic Cough, Female Weakness, Spermatorrhoea, Rheumatism, etc. All surgical operations performed.
