in Middletown, NJ |
Brought my teenaged daughter in to see Dr Castro and we both loved LOVED her. She's got a great personality that puts you at ease. She does an awesome job of explaining the diagnosis in simple laymen's terms that the average human being can understand, and her followup and willingness to help is a huge plus. Wish we could stick with her but unfortunately she does not specialize in my daughters diagnosis. Very cool woman....Wish I could invite her home for dinner.
