I have had two procedures with Dr. Castiglione and the work is to perfection. A Rhinoplasty 10yrs ago then a partial tummy tuck 4yrs ago. He has great bedside manner and explains everything so you feel at ease. He was recommended by a Patient of mine and I never even went for a second opinion. I felt confident and comfortable with him from The start. My niece is 18 and she’s heading in for her rhinoplasty this spring bc she inherited her Aunties nose. ??????? Sally P.

Dr. Castiglione is an excellent surgeon. I had an Panniculectomy, abdominoplasty with diastasis repair. Dr. Castiglione Explained the procedure, listened to what I wanted. I am very pleased with the results after only four (4) weeks. I expect the swelling will go down and it will be even better. Additionally his staff could not have been better.

He ruined my daughters nose. The bridge of her nose is practically flat to her head. The surgery was suppose to be a deviated septum with a little cosmetic touch. Her nose is also crooked

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Castiglione. He listened to my questions and answered all of my concerns. He never rushed me through an appointment and was very attentive to me while I was in the hospital. It usually takes several months to get an appointment with him but for me, he is worth every minute of the wait.

Regarding top surgery, he doesn't know the proper techniques. Also, he and his staff are rude & condescending. Not recommended.
