Dr. Castro goes above and beyond. How many pediatricians do you know that will take off-hr calls themselves and get back to you promptly? Not just brush-off calls -- very thorough, compassionate, caring, and professional approach each time. Her willingness to take the sacrifice to spend extra time with pts on the phone despite insurances' unwillingness to pay for those services says a lot about her character and commitment to all of her pts. For office visits--it cannot get any more pleasant.

I would not reccomend her if you are looking for someone supportive of breastfeeding. She claims breastmilk has no nutritional value after 12 months. This is outdated information and goes against what the world health organization reccomends and also against what the american academy of pediatrics recommends. There is science based evidence that breastmilk is beneficial regardless what age.
