First, I wanted to clarify that my wait was no more than five minutes. My first meeting with Dr. Castro was a very pleasant one. I have never been to a nutritionist and I was concerned that a cookie cutter planwould be given to me. This was not the case; she listened to my concerns and focused on a plan that would address those concerns. Friendly and professional!

She is professional, personable, and provided lots of un-judgmental guidance. She is very realistic and does not have a one size fit all approach. She helps you create a lifestyle, not a torture-diet situation, and she works with your personal style. She also has great visual aids. A+
