Patient Reviews (1)
in Seaford, DE |
When my son, a Marine, came home on a 12 hour pass desperately trying not to "wash out" of Recon School due to a severe case of poison ivy and staph infection, Dr. Policastro saw him in his office on a Sunday morning, treating Cory with antibiotics and steriod therapy to bring the raging inflammation, itching, and infection under control. Because he valued my son's fervor to complete this school, I revere Dr. Policastro and appreciate his discernment in listening to his patients. Thank you, sir.
