in Newport, MN |
Dr. Castro took very good care of me and did a terrific job on my ankle surgery. I would recommend anybody to see him for the best foot or ankle care.
st paul, mn |
Even though he was my doctor of record, I never saw him. It is likely that his analysis of my Xray was helpful however -- I can't imagine that the P.A. read the Xray. However, Laura A. (his P.A.) was just going through the motions when dealing with me -- absolutely no care for the patient, not thinking things through, nor was she able to see a problem happening.
St Paul, MN |
Strongly recommend you look elsewhere. I've never met a doctor so wrong and arrogantly disinterested in helping patients. His assistant Jody is clearly stressed out and doesn't (or can't) take the time to return phone calls or even update her voicemail greeting. Save a lot of time and money, look elsewhere for someone that prioritizes patients and actually wants to help people.

Highly recommended!

I tore tendons in my foot, had to have surgery. The surgery went great. Dr. Castro was professional, friendly, and easy to talk too. I would highly recommend him.
