Wonderful experience. Have not experienced a doctor taking as much time to really determine where to treat and loved the level if detail that Dr Castellano took with me even though I was not doing much.

Dr. Castellano did an excellent job injecting my fillers. We discussed what I wanted to achieve and when he finished, I saw immediate results. I was surprised that I had no bruising and only minor swelling for one day. It has been one week and I am ecstatic with the results. It is a great way to begin the New Year, looking refreshed and youthful. I highly recommend Dr. Castellano for his experience, bedside manner, positive attitude and genuine concern about each patient.

Dr. Castellano was very informative and motivational during my visit. I went to have filler done for the first time, and his technique was phenomenal! I barely felt the pinch of the needle. I very much enjoyed our discussion about smiling, as it was a good distraction during the procedure. I am enjoying my results. I would definitely recommend Dr. Castellano to anyone interested in filler.

From the moment I walked in the door warm smiles to greet you. When it was time to see Dr. Rich I have never been so comfortable with a Plastic Surgeon. He explains everything and gives great suggestions on how to achieve the look you want. During the procedure he walks you thru every step that he is doing. I absolutely will be back to see him again. One of the best here in The Villages. Very professional in everyway. Thank you Dr. Rich .

Doctor Rich Castellano, I got radiesse to smooth the marionette lines and nasolabial folds. I was more than please with the outcome. He was very kind, went the extra mile to make sure you understood every thing about your procedure. He was very patient, extremely caring. Best doctor , professional, Extremely Knowledgeable, Double Board Certified. I could not ask for more.

Very competent and professional.

i had a groupon for radiesse and used it for my chin area. He had some left over and used it in my upper cheek area. Almost a year later I still have festoons that I've been told are extremely hard to get rid of. Those tiny injections ruined my face! NEVER allow a doctor to put radiesse near your eyes. I wish he knew better. There is no recourse. I'm stuck with them. Not happy. I know Drs use groupon to upsell and they tried to sell me 2k worth of procedures that day. Hard lesson learned.

Doctor has a great personality and gentle technique.

Doctor was amazing. He took his time explaining what he could for me. He made me feel comfortable and his artistry made me feel better about myself than I have in a long time. All of his staff was very knowledgeable and they also took their time explaining. I genuinely felt like they cared. I know I will definetly return for more procedures and I highly recommend for anyone who is 'Growing Older' to do the same.
