Dr. Castro was terrific—so nice, patient, and clear in his instructions for walking me through tests. I would recommend 100%. And the front desk receptionist was also so friendly and on top of everything. I'd highly recommend.

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.

Dr. Castro was very nice and attentive. He spent time talking to me about my concerns and explained everything very clearly. I have had one visit with him but since then I have had trouble reaching his office to get thenecessary forms for a procedure. The phone always goes to voicemail and after leaving two voicemails I still have not gotten a return call.
