Care Philosophy

I feel it is a privilege to take care of patients. My philosophy is simple: I treat each patient as though they were a member of my family. I believe medical decisions should not be made by the doctor alone but rather should be a joint decision between the patient and the doctor. It's your body and you know it better than anyone.

    Dr. Castro has been my PCP for the past 5+ years. He is always responsive and (more or less) on time for my appointments. I have never felt rushed or felt like I did not have his full attention. Very personable - really takes interest in his patients.

    I feel compelled to respond to my recent post review, after noticing just 'one star' below... Untrue! We gave Dr. Ernest Castro 5 stars in all categories! He's the best! The scheduling issue was our only concern. I am disappointed and concerned that the 'one star' review may reflect on his ability and character as a fine Doctor. Which he indeed is! No question... Thank You for allowing me to clarify this more clearly. His light should shine brighter!

    While I'm new to his practice, and have only seen him a few times, I'm very impressed with Dr. Castro's overall approach to Primary Care and Wellness. His positive attitude and confident communication style is most appreciated. Would highly recommend.
