My husband had a valve repaired in December. Dr. Castillo-Sang is a very professional and caring doctor. He takes his time explaining everything. We can’t thank him and his team enough. I would highly recommend him. We were impressed with the hospital and all doctors and nurses.

Dr. Castillo-sang performed an aortic valve replacement on me two years ago. It went flawlessly and I was discharged from the hospital two days after surgery. He performed it using a three inch incision (unlike the Mayo Clinics recommendation of a full top to bottom incision). My recovery was quick and uneventful and I resumed a full active lifestyle in a few short weeks. People are amazed when I tell them the whole thing was no big deal! That's the highest compliment I can give to him.

Dr. Castillo-Sang replaced my mitral valve. He is SO knowledgeable about his work. Please listen to his advice, because it may save your life. His humor and his kindness along with his staff helps to reassure patients that they can trust him to improve their quality of life. #openheartsurvivor

My wife spent her entire life in nursing and her father was a doctor. She researched Dr. Castillo-Sang prior to me having an aortic heart valve replacement. He is outstanding in every way. I went in on Tuesday morning and left Friday afternoon with a new heart valve and feeling great . No one would ever believe open heart surgery could be so easy.
