      My mother had a Appoitment at 2:20 she didn't see the doctor until 4:00 and has not come out yet!!! The office is packed with people and appears to be unorganized !! I spoke with a office manager and I wasn't satisfied with her answer it's clearly a scheduling issue and a need to pack patients in for the profit!!!!

      I would not recommend this dr! Worst office staff ever! The office manager does not return phone calls regarding important medical information. I was left with a Scleral buckling untreated and was told by Dr Castillejos office staff due to insurance issues Dr Castillejos could no longer treat me. I was not given an option to fix the insurance issue or pay by cash. My calls were never answered or returned by the office manager.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
