Dr. Castillo and his staff are beyond wonderful. He’s a very thoughtful man that takes as much time as each patient needs to explain everything in relatable and understandable terms. The staff is always extremely pleasant and helpful. I’m currently 4 years in remission thanks to Dr. Castillo. I’ve since moved out of the area, and receive excellent care from my new oncology team, but nothing compares to the level of care I received from Dr. Castillo and the rest of the staff. They’re hands down the best in the area, and from my experience they’re quite possibly the best in the entire state. Cancer is terrifying, but you’re in wonderful hands here.

Dr Jose Castillo is simply introduced to my father while he is visiting his GP in Frackville , but does not examine my father, just a face to face intro nothing more. Yet when my father receives his bill summary a month later ,with the GP usual amount that he receives plus co-pay . Dr. Castillo also claims a $118 + double the co-pay totals a double billing . His only attachment on that visit was "hello , how are you nice to meet you"! Sneaky business practice, billed to insurance!
