Several years ago my teenage daughter was complaining she had back pain. I took her to a few doctors who basically could find nothing wrong looking at her X-rays. I don't think anyone believed her when she said how bad it hurt. It was Dr. Castillo who took us seriously and ordered a MRI finally. He noticed something going on her with her spinal cord, and identified the serious problem she was dealing with and we were able to proceed from there. Thanks Dr. Castillo.

Dr Castillo performed a spinal fusion of my lower back in 2013. I always found Dr Castillo to be very helpful and straightforward. I felt very confident of his medical decisions and attention to detail. My back is doing well.
