This isn't over yet so I don't have a whole bunch to say. But I traveled over an hour for a five minute appointment just for a MRI referral, some steroids, and a five minute appointment. He's a very very sweetman, and obviously a good doctor. I'll be seeing him again shortly.

He's very caring and clearly knowledgeable. I have had to take a break from seeing him and following through on my back issues because I broke my leg, but when it's healed, I'll be back to continue where we left off...

This was just an initial consultation for surgery with Dr. Castro. I was told by a different spine surgeon that I have herniated disc L4-5. I have severe pain on my left leg and even my strehnch is reduced on myleft foot. I was offered a big surgery with a fusion surgerie in 3 different levels and that is what makes me look for a second opiniao. Dr. Castro seems to be very experienced and he tols me I was able to do just one level with minimally invasive surgery. I really appreciated his intuitive sensibilities when it came up to assessing my case. Too many prior doctors have paid more attention to my MRI's than my symptoms.I also heard really good things about Dr. Weinstein and they both operate together. I am looking forward to see him again! He ordered one more test and I think after that we will move with the surgery.

Went there with a bad shoulder tear. My shoulder was very painfull for 3 months even with theraphy amost everyday. I could not tolerated those pain medications any more. Surgery was needed. Dr Weinstein and Dr castro scheduled in a placein Astoria, i dont remember the name. Dr Weinstein performed the surgery. All went well.Today I went back with Dr Castro and he removed my sutures, I love that doctor, he is so calm. And My Shoulder is not 100% but it is at least 90% better. I could not live like that and now... if stays like this I am super happy!

My conversation with Dr. castro was very professional. Dr. castro was very thorough and was able to figure out the problem with my back pain when no other orthopedic was able to. I had been to several orthopedic doctors and itwas always just epidural injections and what I had it was a piriformis syndrome.He shows much pride in his work and you can tell he cares about his patients. He works extremely hard for his patients and makes them feel at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. castro.

I waited over two hours for my appointment and then saw the doctor for five minutes, at which point he basically told me to keep self medicating. I will not be back to this office.
