in Avondale, AZ |
I completed all the paperwork days before and only need to initial and sign three pages. I arrived at 9:50am and ignore until 10:45am. I asked the receptionist if the doctor was running behind. She told me no and he would be with me very soon. five minutes latter i was called to exam room. The PA apologized and told me that there must have been a bad accident as all their patients were late and she would be right back. Twenty (20) minutes past and no one returned. Never got served

Dr. Castillo starts off all smiles and pleasant when you first meet him. This is all a front. I had a recurrent Ventral Hernia he repaired in October of 2016. It is not even a year later and the whole problem has come full circle. He is extremely non-cooperative towards difficult issues and problems he in variably is responsible for regarding post-surgical complications and need for additional surgical intervention. My first hernia repair lasted 13 years. Castillo's lasted barely 11 months

Overly friendly, but he actually uses that to hide an anger issue, which surfaces pretty quickly if you are an informed patient. He has been around a long time, but is not checked out on latest methods, so he pushes you to do things his (old fashioned) way, when laparoscopic robotic would be better for YOU. Puts down other doctors that are more up-to-date than him. Pushes for the most over-the-top, involved, and expensive treatment (within the confines of what he knows how to do).

I highly recommend Dr. Castillo and Joni McIntyre PA. My experience with them both was amazing. When you are faced with surgery, I wouldn't hesitate to see them. Joni will completely put you at ease and their knowledge and professionalism can't be beat. Surgery was a success and feeling much better.

Every year I search for new health insurance and the only doctor I insist is on the list is Dr. Castillo. I had breast cancer in 2010 and now understand that our ob/gyns do not specialize in this. I trust Dr. Castillo and go back for a yearly exam. There is no better nurse than his nurse Lisa who helped me navigate through the trauma of breast cancer and the myriad of appointments and check-ups and followups. I have and will continue to recommend this team for breast health and all other.

Everything from first appts to last went well, and they answered my questions.. he has a confident outlook and a sense of humor , even took a Saturday call with a question I had after surgery.. thankyou for everything you did...since I had some golf ball sized stones.
