Didn't seem like he was having a good day. He seemed irritable. He did not have my bloodwork in my chart which was faxed to the office a month ago which was confirmed by his secretary at the time. None the less, I would still recommend because he is a great doctor.

Dr Castro is without doubt one of the most skilled and knowledgeable physician I've seen. His bedside manner is understates and put me at ease immediately -- maybe why I unintentionally told him my life story. Be prepared to wait as he takes his time with each patient and is very thorough. I left understanding more about my condition and feeling empowered to manage it.

I highly recommend Dr. Castro. I came to see him by way of an emergency room/hospital stay after an accident. He spent a lot of time going over the cat scan results and making sure I understood them and what it meant in terms of recovery. He was knowledgable, patient and most of all, kind. He answered my many questions throughly and for the first time since the accident, I felt like I had a doctor who got to know me and cared about my recovery. I wish he was a primary care physician so I could see him for everything! His office staff was friendly, the building is beautiful with gorgeous stain glass and it's right near the subway. If you need a pulmonlogist, he should be your first choice.

This was my first visit with Dr. Castro being referred starting from scratch. I found he was very patient, a good listener, and very helpful in explaining things in both medical and common terms you can understand. My impression is that he is very expert at what he does, and gave good advice on how to proceed that was positive and encouraging! I look forward to progressing with my challenges, with some caring guidance.

After being a patient for 10 years, I still adore Dr. Castro, however his office has made several unforgiveable mistakes. I was given medication that I am highly allergic to. Secondly, I went there several times in 2012-2013 and every time I gave my insurance card nobody mentioned I was out of network. In 2015 I received threatening notices from a collections agency stating I owed them. Use caution!
