Meet Dr Shamil Castro. Dr Castro graduated from St. Matthew's University School of Medicine on May 2013 before moving to Tallahassee. Born in the U.S. but of Hispanic background both of Cuban and Puerto Rican decent, Shamil moved from P.R. to Orlando, Florida at 18 years old to pursue a career in medicine which she knew she loved since the age of 4. Her interest developed from her grandfather, a man she admires profoundly, who as an immigrant worked hard to pursue the American dream for his family and grandchildren and has taught her the importance of hard work and perseverance. She obtained her Bachelor's degree in Microbiology from the University of Florida where she participated in research, medical mission trips as well as met her now husband Carlos. It was during this time that she realized the importance of primary care, “There is nothing in the world that I find more rewarding than helping those in need and preventing illness.” After obtaining her BS degree she began medical school and graduated with a combined MD /MBA. She recently completed her Family Medicine Residency at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where she won awards like "Caring Hands" and participated in medical mission to Nicaragua. In her final year of residency, Dr Castro's second dream came true when she became a mom to a wonderful little boy, Carlos Manuel Castro, currently 8 months old. When not working, Dr Castro enjoys spending time with her family, visiting family and friends in central Florida, exercising, salsa dancing, traveling, participating in mission trips and playing with her long-hair Chihuahua, Simba.

in Tallahassee, FL |
I recently visited W/Dr. Shamil Castro. I was a 1st visit as my Dr. is retiring, but she also had to do a physical with very little time. She covered all areas brought to her attention as well as brought up some areas about which I had not previously been concerned.
