He is great. He listens and tries to help you any way he can. He wrote a prescription that saved me on the copay and even gave me a discount card. He truly wants to make you better.

He listened!!! I had been referred to another Endocrinologist who didn't listen to anything I had to say. And, that Endo Doc ordered $2.000 worth of testing to see what the issue was - when my blood test results already showed a very high testosterone level for a woman of my age. At that point, I knew I had to get a second opinion and I found Dr. Castorino. He listened to my concerns and believed me! We agreed on a treatment plan - saving me money, stress, and very literally...my hair!!

This is by and large the worst medical experience of my life. I frankly think that medical board should take Dr. Castorino’s license away. He is dangerous as a human being and a doctor. I knew that I have an under-active thyroid and came to Dr. Castorino hoping for treatment. He did give me a consultation and send me to get lab work for thyroid panel. I paid out of pocket for both his visit and the lab work, around $350. After blood work came back, Dr Castorino simply never returned my calls and

I just met Dr Castorino and his staff yesterday after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a month ago. I left his office feeling like I was floating! For the first time, I felt good about being a diabetic! He was so positive and encouraging! It is so hard to find a doctor that you actually like! He explained things in a way that makes sense!!! I know this is the start to a life long journey...I am so happy to take this journey with Dr Castorino as my guide!!! Thank you very much!!!!

This is the best doctor I have ever seen.I have been suffering with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and I was not willing to accept that this is what the rest of my life was going to feel like.There have to be answers for me.Doctor Castorino was very personal, listened, looked at my history, and treated me like a person, not a case.He understood how to help me get back on my feet while at the same time helping me figure out the best way to approach my personal issues.He understood!!!Best doc ever.

This doctor is the 1st one I've found that I actually liked and felt confidence in for the last 10 years! He is friendly yet professional & doesn't come across as a demigod and actually educates his patients beyond what any of the others I've been to have done.

Dr. Castorino does abide by his philosophy which is to listen to the patient. I have a complicated endocrinological auto-immune disease. He is slowly changing my meds and I have felt quite a bit better. He believes in taking things slow. He is extremely knowledgeable about the entirety of a healthy working body. That is his goal of treatment (or at least to get as close as he can). He has a forward looking approach to treatment. My longest wait time was 15min. He will also take more time prn.

Dr Castorino is an excellent doctor to go to. He is very knowledgeable in what he knows and takes the time to listen and spend as much time needed to answer questions. He goes beyond making sure his patients take good care of themselves.

Dr. Castorino has great bedside manner, he's easy to talk to, he listens and is willing to do whatever it takes to get you feeling better. In 14 years, after 8 different Endocrinologists and a few Internal MDs or DOs, I finally found the Doctor that is not stuck in protocol mode. He treats the patient not the lab results. So far, I'm thrilled! The staff is friendly too!
