in Berea, KY |
Dr. Decastro is a true blessing. He was able to properly diagnose my skin condition after other doctors had failed. I finally received the correct treatment because of him. Dr. Decastro brought my multiple months of suffering to an end. God answered my prayers when I wanted to give up and I am forever thankful.
