Dr. Castera took time and thoroughly explained my condition and all the medical testing that had been performed. He was patient and kind. I appreciated Dr. Castera treating me as a person not a patient case number. All of his staff was courteous and helpful.

There are not enough words to describe my experience with Dr Castera. I loved him! He explained the procedure in-depth, what to expect for recovery, great manners, caring doctor, gets to know you personally. His office staff was caring as well. Overall, I would refer anyone to him that is having issues with internal or external hemorrhoids. I would have the surgery all over again as well! Don't be scared, take the first step!

I saw Dr Castera first in the office then later in an outpatient surgical setting. In both instances he was friendly and cordial and seemed very engaged in our dialogue. His staff is over-the-top friendly. Very helpful in scheduling procedures and tests and working with insurance. I’ve only seen Dr Castera twice so far but I feel very confident with his care going forward and I would recommend him.

Suffice it to say I've been through a lot. I can't begin to tell you all how excelent a doctor he is. He has gone out of his way to do what he can for me. Caring doctors who truly take an interest in the patient are rare. He does both and makes sure you understand what's going on so your not left behind in the process. He's a wonderful doctor.

I first met Dr Castera in 1976 when he performed a colon resection on me. Since I had a history of colon polyps, I returned several times for colonoscopy. He has always been very professional and helpful. I highly recommend him to anyone who suspects that they have a colon or rectal problem. And don"t think it is a problem only for those over 50. I had my first colon resection at age 47 and some of my kids and grandkids have had polyps in their 20"s

I like Dr Castera. He explained stuff good and had a plan to see if he could help my bowels. He was gentle and caring.

Dr. Castera took the time with me to sit and go over every detail without making me feel rushed and that I was one of 30 patients he was seeing that day (although I know he's a busy man). He was very understanding and patient. He took the time to explain to me specifically what was going on, what could be done to correct and didn't speak to me in a language that was condescending. And, he wanted to do what was best for me and not what was best for his pocket. He is highly recommended.
