Dr. De Castro is a great surgeon. He did my back surgery in 2012. Having pain back and I can't see him because I had to change my health insurance from one company to another. I saw Dr. De Castro at St Vincent's last year and told him I was having problems. He said just come see me and we will take a look at it. His clinic informed me they were out of network with my new insurance. My insurance company said no problem, we will pay out of network. I even offered to pay out of pocket to see him.

HE DOESN'T TAKE TIME TO EVEN SPEAK TO YOU, THE PATIENT, JUST WALKS IN, GIVES THE SHOT AND WALKS OUT. WHEN WE WENT TO THE EVALUATION APPT. HE CAME IN THE ROOM, SAID THESE SHOT ARE NOT WORKING FOR YOU, I'M SENDING YOU TO A PAIN MANAGMENT DR. HE WAS IN THERE AT MOST 1 MINUTE! I THOUGHT THE SHOTS WERE BEGINNING TO WORK BUT HE DIDN'T ASK ME. I'M STILL IN SEVERE PAIN ALL THE TIME AND HAVE NO PLACE TO GO FOR HELP. VERY DISSAPPOINTED.
