Accepting new patients

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.

in Chandler, AZ |
I have been searching for a GI doctor for a while now and I am glad I found Dr. Castillo. My first experience with Dr. Castillo was great! She really does care for your wellbeing, takes extra steps to make sure you understand and takes the time to listen. Her staff I cannot say enough, specially Jose, her assistance has been great in communicating with me.

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 continued to follow up with me to ensure that I was ok. She has never given up on finding answers and treats me with the utmost respect. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable.

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.
I really trust her, she was patient, thorough, and thoughtful.
