Dr Castillo is the most caring Dr I have ever had. I was a Mayo patient for 13 years & saw multiple Dr.s, I was admitted in Advent ER, Altamonte & was very fortunate to get Dr Castillo. Not only does he treat my cancer he’s managed my other conditions. I cannot say enough about this incredible man.

He treated my brother back around 2002. He was amazing, caring, and treated my brother like he was his own family. My brother was considered in remission back in 2003 and has been cancer free ever since.

Dr Linda Lukman was my Oncologist until she retired about a year or so ago. We discussed the Dr she was transferring me to and she suggested I try Dr Castillo as he was one of the most knowledgeable Drs in the group. All being good, however she just felt that since at the time he was seeing patients at Orlando East location and his personality and mine would be compatible. She was 100% spot on. Even though he’s moving to the Altamonte location, I’m staying with him. My cancer is not active now

This Doctor, Raul Castillo, MD Hematologist/ Oncologist, is a marvelous human being, and as a physician there is no one better than him. He really cares, not because he has to, but because his “heart cares”, and he listens to each concern and he leaves nothing unattended. Plus the office staff is great! We are more than grateful to him and his team, we are in big debt!!!! The Rodríguez family.
