Reasonable wait time. The doctor addressed my concerns and questions. I have seen Dr. Castro a couple of times and will definitely choose him as my physician in the future should the need arise.

Dr. Castro is extremely out of touch with recent medical advances. Being a healthy diabetic for over 20 years, I am well aware of my health needs and refuse to listen to someone who doesn't listen to my concerns. It was my first appointment with Dr. Castro and he wanted to change my entire care plan that my doctor of 15 years had in place. He was rude, condescending and very short, he wanted to take me off my insulin pump after knowing me for 10 minutes. I absolutely do not recommend him.

Waste of time.. Never even touched me. Was too busy "charting". Seemed irritated I was there and explained nothing to me.
Jensen Beach, FL |
Dr. Castro has wasted my time. He seems angry that you are there. He doesn't explain why things are happening or what he's doing to make them better. I have been going there for almost half a year and have spoken to him for a grand total of 5 minutes probably. He rushes you out of the office. All this and the issues i originally came in with are still present. I wouldn't recommend anyone using him, if you do don't expect to get any of your questions answered.
