I came out to my parents as a transboy. For my transitioning, we did not have experience and my parents brought me to him. The dosages of testosterone he gave turned out to be 10 times what the recommended dosages were, when a new provider showed us how high my blood test was we were shocked! I am glad to have found REAL doctors now!

Dr Castro-Magana is the best of the best. He diagnosed my PCOS in 1999 (at age 18) when the condition was not well known or treated. He put me medication that helped me lose 100lbs in 2 years and gave me back my life. He is the most caring and lovely man and I only wish that I could still see him now at age 37 -Deena

Can someone please ask dr Castro to call me back with my sons results. I'm very concerned there is a problem because he will not return my calls for over a week. I paid 630 for the test and waited 4 hours to take it. Please help!!!!!
