What People Say About Dr. Alberto Castiel, MD

I moved to Florida over a year ago when my son-in-law was transferred to Jacksonville by the Navy. I have been going to North Florida Medical since I’ve been here and always saw the PA. (She was WONDERFUL) On my latest visit I was informed she’d left the practice suddenly and I needed to see Dr. Castiel. I am 66 years old and I had never been verbally attacked by a doctor until I saw him. He is the most hateful, arrogant person I have ever had the misfortune to come into contact with, doctor or otherwise. He ridicules, shames, and berates without giving a person time to understand why this is happening. He practically screamed at me because I said I had been monitoring my blood sugar and he insisted you can’t buy glucometers or test strips without a prescription. I guess he hasn’t been to Walgreens’s lately. Lol. Normally I’m very good at words but this caught me off guard and was so unexpected it left me nearly speechless. To this day I don’t know what set him off.

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.

I generally don't do online reviews but in Dr. Castiel's case I felt compelled to do so. He has been our family doctor for 16 years. He is extremely knowledgeable with a good balance of prescribing meds. and encouraging life style changes. He will take the time necessary to address all your concerns and backs up his advice with solid science and research. A good family doctor is hard to find and that is why after moving from Orange Park to Savannah, GA. in 2009, we still continue to drive 2 hrs

I have been a patient of Doctor Castiel for the last few years, and he and his staff are phenomenal. I gladly attest to the fact that he bends over backwards to both help a patient with their healthcare needs but also encourages them to make the necessary life changes. My favorite thing about this office is in the last two years of coming in for visits, I never wait or am inconvenienced as in other practices I have visited. You will not go wrong in choosing him as your Health Care Doctor.
