    Castillo is so un-interested in his patients complaints that, during a referral appointment with him for carpal tunnel symptoms, he never even bothered to examine my hands. He will go 5 minutes or more during an appointment typing on his computer screen without saying a single word. Poor attitude and a total lack of interest or empathy towards patients.

    Even though his office said he was taking new patients and we had an appointment for an establishing visit as a new patient, he became very agitated and said the case was too difficult and we needed to find another doctor. When i asked if he had any recommendations he just became more agitated and kept saying it was too much work and we needed another doctor. The medical assistant was very kind and recommended someone once the doctor had left.

    Dr Castillo was uninterested and uninvolved in talking or diagnosing my complaints He stared at the computer screen and only offered to make referrals without caring to investigate symptoms. He was aloof and rude.
