I was so impressed with Dr Castillos and his practice from ease of making my first appointment and easy check-in with Madison, to on-time appointment, to Nicole taking blood painlessly, to thorough appointment with Dr Castillos. Dr Castillos provided valuable information that I had not received during three hears with prior Oncologist. Dr Castillos will now also be my Primary Care doctor. I feel so fortunate to have discovered Dr Castillos and look forward to many healthy years under his care.

Dr Castillos and his team have given me an improved quality of life that is hard to come by with my disease. He personally explains each procedure and the treatment process with every patient. Dr Castillos doesn't just administer chemotherapy and infusions. He works with each patient to help them with all symptoms of their cancer, or other disease, and with any side effects of the treatment. For a comfortable environment, friendly staff and the kindest and most knowledgeable doctor see Dr Ca

Very hands on, doesn't pass much off to other staff to do. Explained diagnosis and treatments extremely well. He kept watch, himself, over me and others receiving transfusions, checking on us and offering to get us water or coffee or blankets. No doubt he has genuine care for his patients.
