    I highly recommend Dr. Castillo-Sang because I had a rare condition, atrial myxoma. I needed open heart surgery but did not want open chest surgery. I wanted a surgeon who was experienced with minimally invasive heart surgery and highly regarded. I researched for the best I could find. As a nurse, I had a lot of questions. I found Dr. Mario Castillo-Sang, and he was close to home. Dr. Castillo-Sang personally returned my call to see where I was on my journey because he was out of town when I called his office at the start of my diagnosis. His nurse, Danielle, was able to get my records & make an appointment on the same day. Dr. Castillo-Sang was confident about minimally invasive surgery for me. He clearly & thoroughly explained his plan & what to expect after surgery. Any questions I may have had before the appt were answered without asking & he allowed for more. He was always available, compassionate, and kind throughout my care and recovery. I am getting better every day! Thank you

    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.

    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.
