No, Dr. Castillo was more interested in having ME believe that I'm suffering an "allergic reaction " rather than actually looking at my condition! Would rather be dismissive of my symptoms and assign them to a reaction to ingestion of chemicals rather than actually investigate the underlying causes of my internal and external problems. He said " we're a team ", yet had he been the coach of my "team" aka my body, he would be liable for a handsome some of money for severance of responsibility and work not performed. As per his hypocritic oath, state and federal health laws and the general expectations of the patient, who happens to still be sick almost fifteen months and counting.

My father has very deep pressure ulcers . Dr Castillo has a fantastic heart , he wants to heal everyone . I do believe he loses sleep over the ones he cannot help. He has helped my father as much as he can and I am so grateful for his efforts. Do yourself a favor and be treated by him .His staff is wonderful , kind and so compassionate. He tells you like it is , but with compassion. He is a good man and doctor.

Tampa, FL – Jan 25, 2017
D. Castillo is very knowledgeable in his field of practice. He also has great bedside manners. Was very discreet with my issues even though my dad was in the room. I will definitely see him again for any further health issues I have in the infectious disease department which will very very soon.
