Dr. Castaldo is nice enough, but he's quick to recommend pills as treatment before exploring other options. I was a patient of his more than a decade ago, and I'm currently trying to track down my medical records from his office, but first I need to know if they even still have them. In the past two weeks, I've called his office eight times. Not once have I been able to speak to a real person. I've left three messages with two different departments, and nobody has called me back. Frustrating.

My brother has been going to castaldo for months now and all he does is feed him different medications. My brothers twitching and migraines and other various problems are still no better than when he first started going. We were just there again two days ago and once again he gave him different pills. Which took two days to come in. Only to find he wrote the wrong prescription anyway. Useless doctor. Am glad he is retiring because he sucks. Trying to find a better neurologist to take him to.

Posting this on behalf of my deceased Aunt Rosaline Ruggiero. She was a long time patient of Dr. Castaldo's and always spoke fond of him. He was very supportive and encouraging to her. Thank you Dr. Castaldo. Sincerely, Joe Ruggiero

Never recieved records from old doctor. They kept trying to get records from somewhere I had never even been and told them that. Preteneded to recieve them while I was in office. Did not listen to complaints or health issues. Disregaurded me and my issues. Told me to seek help from a psychiatrist for an obvious neuro issue. he may be the cheif but is obviously not a very good doctor!! All the doctors in this practice and it takes month to be seen.

Dr. Coastado is a wonderful wonderful dr. He wanted me to come back 2times a week for nose injections for my migraines and said I did not need a appointment. The staff would get back to me. 3 weeks later 3 calls on my part and they will not get back to me. He. Is so great and caring but I don't think he knows how his staff handles his appointments. I am still waiting for a call back. Been a patient for many many years. Don't know what to do I would recommend him to anyone
