What Patients Say!

Hoyt P. - "Dr. Castillo is very professional, considerate and caring. His communication style is very down to earth and he listens to patient concerns. I saw Dr. Castillo for a right inguinal hernia and he found I had a recurrent left inguinal hernia as well. He performed surgery on both in December of 2017, assisted by his PA Joni. Both showed great bedside manner during the entire process, ensured that I was comfortable with every step of the surgery and post-op instructions. His entire staff showed great concern for my condition and called post-op to see how I was doing. I highly recommend Dr. Castillo and have referred several family members and friends to his office."

Karla M. - "Dr. Castillo is extremely knowledgeable in many diverse areas. I have a fairly unknown disease and he knew exactly how surgery or even an injection could flair up the disease. For nine years I had seen doctors in Wyoming, Utah and Nevada and no knew why I was in pain. He determined what was happening in the first 5 minutes! He is also, kind caring and genuinely concerned about his patients well-being. What a wonderful person and even better doctor."

Leslye L. - "Dr.Castillo is absolutely the best! I suffered with some excruciating pain on my upper right side and after goin to diffrent Doctors, my answer was that there was nothing abnormal on my ultrasound or labs. Thankfully i got reffered to Dr.Castillo by a friend he took my gallbladder out and my pain has been gone! He just knows what he is doing and makes you feel like family and not just a patient. Not to mention his staff is so nice and makes you feel so comfortable. Lisa his MA answered all my questions and was able to acomodate me in his schedule as soon as that same week. And his PA Jonni was awesome!!"

Susan - "Every year I search for new health insurance and the only doctor I insist is on the list is Dr. Castillo. I had breast cancer in 2010 and now understand that our ob/gyns do not specialize in this. I trust Dr. Castillo and go back for a yearly exam. There is no better nurse than his nurse Lisa who helped me navigate through the trauma of breast cancer and the myriad of appointments and check-ups and followups. I have and will continue to recommend this team for breast health and all other."

K - "Everything from first appts to last went well, and they answered my questions.. he has a confident outlook and a sense of humor, even took a Saturday call with a question I had after surgery.. thankyou for everything you did...since I had some golf ball sized stones. Your a great surgeon..thank you"
