What People Say About Dr. Carlos De Castro III, MD
Reply
Dr. De Castro is an excellent oncologist. He treated me for leukemia years ago. He and his team saved my life, and I'm eternally grateful for it. He has an excellent bedside manner and I've grown to trust his judgment completely when it comes to my medical care. He and his staff have always looked out for me and taken great care of me. I could not recommend him enough.
