Dr. Castro did a fusion on my spine, it did not take and then he refused pain medication while I waited for a repeat surgery. He doesn't listen and his assistant is not helpful at all.

Dr. Castro has operated on my mother in law and me, as well. He is very pleasant, tells it like it is in a very simple manner that us non Doctors can understand. When I first went to him my back was hurting badly and I was ready for surgery. Surprisingly to me, he said no, let's try some other stuff first, pain management, etc. This helped for a while and put my surgery off three or four years. I was impressed he did not want to rush into surgery. He is a good man.

Dr. Castro is the best. He is very compassionate and listens to everything you have to say. He explains things in language that you can understand. He will take as much time as needed to answer all of your questions and even questions from your family members. I had surgery back in October after he was finished he went to the waiting room and talked to my family and answered questions from my family. Everyone of them loved him and some have actually switched doctors and he is now their ortho doc
