Dr. Castellanos has been my GI for years. He's knowledgeable, caring, and accessible. I've had EGDs and colonoscopies, and they've all been completed with no complications.

After my colonoscopy procedure this doctor sent me home with aspirated pneumonia. When I came back to the emergency room just two hours later he was notified and popped his head in and said don't worry they'll take care of you. He showed no interest Compassion or concern. I now have been admitted into the hospital for at least 2 or 3 days with no follow-up or interest from him. Interesting enough his nurse did not want me to leave the hospital but was overridden. If you want a doctor who cares please do not go see this guy

I cannot say anything about Dr. Castellanos because I was never able to schedule a visit. My PCP contacted this office and after 8 days I missed a call from them. I called back within 15 minutes and got voice mail. I left a message with all my info including an optional phone number. I did not get a call back. I left a total of three messages on two separate days over the period of a week. It has been a month and I still have not had a return call. Never once did I speak with someone.

This doctor is horrendous!!! Do not see him under any circumstances. He completely botched my medical procedure by performing something I DID NOT CONSENT TO HAVE DONE AND WAS ACTUALLY MEDICALLY CONTRAINDICATED, and I am sick every single day because of it. I went from running marathons to barely being able to walk up a flight of stairs.I saw him in the office a few times after the procedure and explained by symptoms, and he refused to order any additional testing and told me to go away.
