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.

Excelente profesional,tengo 38 años y no encontraban lo que causaban mis stroke hasta que el Dr. Castello me realizó un estudio (que antes yá me habían realizado y salía negativo) y él encontró el diagnóstico. Su empatía y profesionalismo lo distingue. Lo recomiendo al 100%

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.
