  • My visit was very informative and complete.
    Dr. Castro is competent, professional, and friendly. He takes into consideration not only my health issues but also how to treat them given my unique life circumstances.
    Generally, a smooth and seamless process
    He always listens to my concerns whether physical health, family concerns and other stressors that could impact my health status.
    Excellent experience, my situation with Hypoxia slows cognitive skill set though all are patient !
