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.

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.
