She is the most down-to-earth, sweetest, doc ever. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with her and the entire office staff at Cornerstone Women's Care and I have been going here for many years. Dr. Castro has also taken care of my mother. Dr. Castro has a great bedside manner and is very caring and I have recommended this practice to others.

She has seen me through 2 of my babies and was always compassionate and caring. I now live an hour away and I am considering making the drive again to see her with my current child. l felt that she gave just the right amount of truth without being judgmental.

Pushes c-sections for big babies. Told me if my baby isn't at least 9lbs when he was born then she should quit her job. She should have. I have now switched to another ob that as I tell them the reasoning for why I got a c-section they are frowning. She needs to get informed about how to deliver a baby and what makes a delivery succefull. Pushing for c-sections is not my idea of a good practice. I will never return to this dr nor recommend.

Dr. Castro made inappropriate remarks about me being an unmarried teen mother (19), and urged me to get birth control after I delivered so I wouldn't have another tax-funded baby. She also showed up when I was ready to deliver and announced I only had 30 mins to push because she had a scheduled C section. Gave me an episiotomy without numbing me first. Refused to let the baby's father cut the cord because we were not married. I could go on and on but they only allow so many characters on here.
Phoenix, AZ |
7 months into my pregnancy I developed a severe case of pelvic gurdle pain and carpal tunnel in my left hand (diagnosed by another physician) to the point where my bed had become our downstairs couch and I couldn't even get up to use the restroom unless I used my walker or help from my family. Dr Castro not once asked me about my symptoms and was gone out the room before I could explain them to her. She denied my short term disability request because of her lack of research or concern
