I went to Colorectal Surgical Associates, very nervous, and not knowing what would happen. Dr. Castera and his nurse were very easy to talk with, and made me feel comfortable. You could tell that Dr. Castera is very knowledgeable and cares about his patients. Also, I never had to wait in the office for long periods. Definitely recommend Dr. Castera.

My visit to Dr. Castera’s office was fantastic! His staff quickly had me scheduled within a couple of days. The nurses are incredibly empathetic and Dr. Castera is a friendly, compassionate professional Dr., who makes you feel at home. He scheduled me for two weeks after my initial visit, but then when I had to call back a few days later to see if I could get seen any sooner because of my pain level, his wonderful staff again, got me in a couple days later. They are caring people up there and I would recommend them to anyone!

I visited Dr. Castera a few weeks ago. First time visiting this type of specialist. He made me feel very much at ease. Discussed not only my current problem, but lifestyle, diet, etc. and provided recommendations for preventive care. He also provided several options for treatment based on my schedule. Would definitely recommend.

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!
