Care and bedside manner was more than what I expected. *Dr. Castro is also helping with an issue that I didn't know he could help with. Excellent!
I highly recommend Dr Castro.
I felt very confident with this dr. as he appeared concerned about my pain and condition. I felt listened to. He contacted me the next say after lab results and a plan to reduce my inflammation.
Dr. Castro always takes time to explain things to me and I never feel like I am being rushed out the door.
all my experiences with Dr. Castro have been positive. I find him to be caring and willing to explain my condition and treatment in an understandable manner. I have complete confidence in him.
