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.Read more

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!
