Patient Reviews (1)
in Austin, TX |
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!!!
