Dr. Castiel and his team run a great practice. As a student that trained here, I can vouch for the thorough and personal care that they provide. I have to give a particular shout out to PA-C Mark Balister for being a fantastic mentor and healthcare provider :-)

I would recommend Dr. Castiel to anyone who needs a caring doctor. My husband and I have been going to Global Family Care seeing Dr. Castiel for over fifteen years. He is the greatest. Love how he tells you in plain language just what is wrong and how to make it better. He takes the time to listen.
