  • Dr. Castro is great! He is super thorough and makes sure I know what all the options are and what may be the best course for my health. Very pleased I changed to Dr. Castro since my other doctor was too far away.
    I like the way he listened to my observations
    Office staff are friendly, respectful and efficient. Physician is caring and attentive. I would and have recommended Dr Castro to friends.
    Excellent, knowledgeable and caring
    Dr Castro always listens & helps me. I am grateful to have found him. The office is very organized & I like being able to take my X-ray or blood all in one building.
