I cannot recommend Dr. Castillo highly enough. When people give a 10 rating, this doctor should get a 20. He's personable, highly skilled and someone you want on your team if you have cancer. He, also, caught a problem with me developing a huge blood clot and is now treating that symptom. I trusted him with my life and yesterday was pronounced in full remission from my lung cancer. If you or someone you know needs a skilled oncologist, call his office. You won't be disappointed!

I saw Dr. Castillo a year after seeing another Hematologist about very low platelets. The first Doctor said I had an auto-immune disorder like Lupus, but not Lupus and that I could come back to see him in 6 months if I felt like it. My platelet count continued to drop and became dangerously low. I sought a second opinion with Dr. Castillo, he was a lifesaver. He completely reversed my low platelets within two months and I am healthy again. He is kind,caring and compassionate!!!
