How was your experience with the doctor?Easy and straightforward, answered all my questions. Cool office in the basement of a converted church. I'll be going there from now on.

How was your experience with the doctor?Great East Village primary care doctor. I went to get an ear ache checked out and also do a physical and I'm happy with my experience with Dr. Castro. His office is located in an old Church Rectory (where the priest and nuns used to live) which is pretty cool. The office is in the basement and isn't the fanciest office but it gets the job done. The front desk lady lives in Alphabet City so we chatted East Village and she was friendly and helpful. Dr. Castro asked me a lot of questions and had some thoughtful feedback for me. He took the time to dive deep into my history and get to know me and ask any questions I had. Really easy to talk to and seems to genuinely care about his patients and the community. One drawback is that they don't do blood tests at the office so you need to go to a lab to get them done. Overall good experience with Dr. Castro.

How was your experience with the doctor?I have encountered few medical professionals that have wowed me and he definitely did. Not only does he take his time and listens, but literally STOPS what he is doing to LISTEN. Excellent doctor and I think I found my new PCP. This is saying a lot considering I live in Yonkers and work in the Bronx.

How was your experience with the doctor?It was my first time at any doctor’s, the last time being almost 6 years ago for a quick vaccine. I chose Dr. Castro from the high ratings even though he’s quite far from me. It was a great choice! He was extremely understanding. I felt comfortable the whole time and he definitely was taking everything I said seriously. I think that’s really important! I would definitely recommend him.
