Both Maria the office manager and Dr. Castro are warm and professional. You always feel valued and appreciated. The doctor always comes out to greet you and welcome you into his office — a habit that makes you feel special. Thedoctor is thorough and always checks your history to make sure nothing in your care is overlooked. As a middle-aged woman of color, this type of quality of care is very important, as so often, we are not treated with the same degree of care and seriousness as other groups. I’m glad to have found Dr Castro’s practice.

I was very impressed by Dr. Castro. He patiently listens and answers all your questions (even if some of them you make multiple times just from stress). His explanations are clear and in depth. He did all the physical tests necessaryfor my situation on the spot. He is kind and a pleasant personality to interact with. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Castro was great. He took me in for a general check up on a Sunday and patiently processed the check in paperwork, in addition to every step of the consultation. He was very approachable, answered any question I had interms easy to understand and immediately scheduled a follow up to go over the results of my lab work.

My mother had two appointments with two different doctors that I found on zocdoc and she was lucky enough to encounter two really good doctors. One being Dr. Castro. I chose him because of the good reviews and he lived upto my expectations. He was thorough, very personable, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable. We were lucky that we didn’t have a long wait. But I could see how people would have to wait long because Dr. Castro does the vitals, draws the blood , does the ekg. The good thing about that is it gives you a lot of time with the doctor to get all of your questions and concerns out. I would highly recommend him.

Very professional and attentive. The office space leaves a bit to be desired--it's on the older side--and I wish I knew that they couldn't do blood tests on site beforehand.

I've seen Dr. Castro twice, and while he is friendly and takes his time reviewing results with you in person, he never gets back to your phone calls or emails. I had called multiple times and left multiple emails, and stillno response after months. It seems the only way to get answers is to book another appointment, see him in person and pay a co-pay. I've given up and am now looking for another doctor.
