Dr. Castillo's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Castillo "For me, trust is the keystone upon which I form the relationships with my patients. Trust is important when asking a patient to share details of problems that can often be embarrassing. And trust is important when asking a patient to let me help them solve their problems, some of which may have been ongoing for years. In order to build that trust, I show my patients warmth and compassion, I listen fully and intently, and I show my patients a warmer side of medicine. My parents immigrated from El Salvador and made it a point to raise me bilingual. This helps me connect more deeply with a group of patients who might not otherwise be completely understood. "I enjoy the clinical variety that Gastroenterology provides. The complexity of the health and disease of the GI tract challenges my mind. At the same time, I always enjoy the hands-on element that the procedures provide. I am methodical and detail-oriented on the one hand, yet warm and friendly on the other. I always make sure to educate my patients fully, so they can make informed decisions and take an active role in their own care." Born and raised in Los Angeles, Dr. Castillo drags her family to the beach as often as possible. She also enjoys playing princess with her young daughter, getting lost in comedy and action movies/TV, and rooting for the Denver Broncos with her borderline fanatical husband."

Patient Comments (6)

I really liked Dr. Castillo after the first visit. I was happy to have found someone I thought would be a great doctor. What a disappointment. If you have a problem that needs more than a quick follow up you are out of luck. When I asked her if she was going to run tests her response was, “You...more

Dr. Castillo and the office she works for are very unprofessional. I scheduled an appointment to see her over 6 weeks ago, and had to choose a location 20 miles away from where I live because that was the first available appointment. Today 2 business days before my appointment I received a call...more

Dr Castillo is both caring and genuine. She listened to my concerns and took the time to answer all of my questions. When other physician's could not diagnose my condition, Dr Castillo went above and beyond by staying involved in my case, communicating with physicians in other areas, and...more

I have had bad experiences with colonoscopy in the past. Dr Castillo took a great deal of time listening to me and coming up with a solution. The procedure went very well. Her medical assistant is great as well.
