Dr. Castello has taken more interest in my health than I ever expected. Not only did he listen to my concerns, he also educated me on what I could do to increase my quality of life aside from just taking a prescription. I wouldn’t have been able to live the life I’m used to without the care I received from Dr. Castello.

I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything that Dr Castello and his nurse practitioner Erin Vaughn did for my mother Aurora Lasseter. We have had the pleasure of having them in our lives for a number of years. They are compassionate about their patients and have loyalty and dignity in caring for your loved one. Unfortunately my mother lost her fight today but its with great pleasure that I leave this review to you both in knowing that you performed your jobs very well.

I have been a patient of Dr. Castello for over ten years. Both he, and his entire practice have been caring, compassionate and thorough. The timeliness of the appointments there is a truly welcome relief from the typical long wait at physicians offices. I would recommend Dr. Castello to any who might need his services.

I have been a patient of Dr Castello’s for the more than 8 years! Dr Castello and his staff have pulled me through some very rough times and today my quality of life is excellent. Dr Castello is honest and frank when discussing my healthcare Dr Castello is definitely an A+ cardiologist. His office staff is very friendly, competent. The office is run very efficiently. Phone calls are returned promptly and appointments with the doctor or one of his 2 PA’s are scheduled in a timely manner!

If I could of left no star that us what they would if recived, from Dr to office. This was the saddest office I have ever been in in my life. i have had many surgerys.

The next day or so his office nurse practitioner came in and said they would set up a monitor for me for me to come to the office and of course more $$ and the tes

Dr. Castello is the only cardiologist who has been able to figure out & successfully treat my mystery heart condition that ultimately caused me to go into cardiac arrest. A condition that other cardiologists were not able to figure out during the past 10 years - even after loop monitor results showed "nothing was wrong; everything was normal" & I was basically dismised! A few years after the "normal" loop monitor results, I had my cardiac arrest! However, Dr. Castello has solved the mystery!

I first received care in 2013 from Dr Castello. The service was awesome. Then this year, I needed to get a second opinion, so I saw Dr. Castello again. Never, will I want another cardiologist. Dr Castello is a very professional, thorough, caring physician, providing effective care. His office staff display an equal degree of professionalism. Recommend Dr. Castello, absolutely, go there, you will not regret it. PS. JBrown

Ive been a patient of Dr. Castello's for 7 years. I find him one of the most caring physicians I have been to over the years. He always takes the time to listen to my issues and is there when I need him. Wherever I go in Jacksonville,from the Mayo to Baptist Hospital, his reputation is excellent among his peers. The office staff is kind and professional. The new, modern and well equiped office is centrally located in Jacksonville directly next to Memorial Hospital

Excente médico y persona. Soy un hombre joven con 3 bypass y Dr. Castello siempre a estado pendiente a mi salud, fui diagnosticado con Angina de pecho, para nosotros a sido una gran bendición poder contar con un médico que se preocupe tanto por el paciente, que explique cada detalle, y nos brinde la total confianza de preguntar las dudas. Su staff es el mejor. No tengo que esperar en la oficina por más de 10 min. Desearía que hubieran más médicos con la empatía de Dr. Castello. Thanks

Tan agradecida, yá llevo 5 meses operada de mi corazón. Dr. Castello fué quien descubrió la condición llamada PFO (2 agujeros en mi corazón)acabo de cumplir 39 años y yá tenia 4 strokes, ningún médico encontraba la causa, hasta que llegué a la oficina de Dr. Castello dónde me hacen sentir en familia, su profesionalismo e interés por sus pacientes es increíble. Le pido a Dios que le brinde mucha salud para que pueda seguir ayudando a mucha gente. GRACIAS DR. CASTELLO!!

Dr. Castello and his office staff were phenomenal with everything regarding my care. This was my first visit to the practice as a patient. The staff made my visit very easy and more relaxed. Dr. Costello took the time and reviewed all medical information I had taken and discussed everything with me and my family member. We have discussed my plan of care and have a plan. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Castello. It is so nice to have a cardiologist very versed in all his areas of expertise.

My experience w/ this office and Dr. have been horrible. The Dr. was rude, condescending, and showed no empathy towards me as a concerned patient. In fact, he told me "don't be a cry baby". When I asked him a simple question about one of the tests, he responded by saying " I don't care if you do any of the tests actually. Its your health." When I had an echocardiogram done, the nurse's hand's reeked of cigarette smoke. It was disgusting to have her hands all around my chest smelling of smoke.

My husband is a patient of Dr. Castello. He gets very nervous when it has to do with his health, and Dr. Castello always takes time to explain everything in detail to him. His bedside manner is great and always comes in with a smile. He takes time to ask questions about my husband's issues, and then answers everything so my husband is comfortable with him before we leave. I would recommend Dr. Castello to anyone with cardio issues. He is amazing! We are very blessed to have him.

I would recommend Dr. Castello to anyone who needs a cardiologist He is professional, extremely kind and caring but more important he respects his patience and their Total Healthcare is his number one concern. He is very thorough during his exams and explains everything in a way that you understand the diagnosis and the actions that need to be done. His staff is helpful and professional always returning calls ASAP.

I strongly recommend Dr. Castello to anyone seeking a competent & thorough cardiologist. He and his entire staff are true professionals. Dr. Castello has been my cardiologist since 2012 when he diagnosed & repaired a hole in my heart (PFO closure) in 2013 after I experienced several incidents of memory loss. It's believed I had this problem since birth & it took 71 years to be discovered. I have complete faith in Dr. Castello.

I think that Dr. Castello and his staff are dedicated and he is amiable and listens and is competent in his attempt to practice his trade. I trust their concern for my health. I have called a few times to discuss issues I was having with my health, and to report health issues I was having at that time and had great concern about, but did not receive a response. The answer may have only required a short period of time, but may also have required immediate appt. to analyze the problem.
