Dr. Schwartz and his PA Joanie are wonderful. Very caring, attentive, and even funny--but all business at surgery. Dr. Schwartz took the care to make small incisions for my laproscopic gallbladder removal/umbilical hernia repair. Although everyone is different, I was up and moving around the very next day. Now I feel like a new person, they did a great job!
Dr. Castillo is a fabulous doctor! I recently had the need to see a surgeon and was referred to Dr. Castillo to evaluate my abdominal/intestinal issues. Dr. Castillo was thorough, compassionate and extremely interested in finding out exactly what my problem was. I cannot thank Dr. Castillo enough for his expertise. With his experience and knowledge, he pinpointed my problem and fixed it. His medical staff, including Joanie and Lisa were extremely warm and comforting. Jackie in the front office is extremely nice, professional and helpful. I'm hoping I don't need surgery again any time soon, but if I do I will be heading to Dr. Castillo. I'm pretty sure they don't get much better than Dr. Castillo.
Although my health is still being evaluated,I just wanted to make mention of the care I received under Dr Charles Castillo and PA-C Joanie McIntyre. They were extremely patient, attentive and made me feel completely at ease. All of my concerns were addressed and calls placed were promptly returned. Thanks so much to the staff and a shout out to Lisa for all of your guidance and setting up appointments for my continued care elsewhere.
I had a difficult to diagnose abdominal pain, and he took the time to do a thorough analysis, rather than try to hurry you out the door and be quick to judgment like other doctors I saw. Definite high recommendation. Fantastic nursing staff, receptionist is sour, though. Long wait times.
I was treated by Dr. Castillo in 2001 and for several years following. I no longer live in AZ but just recommended him to someone so I decided it is time to also add my comments of recommendation. I had already been diagnosed for Stage 1 Breast Cancer 4 months prior to being referred to Dr. Castillo. I had a lumpectomy and 14 lympth modes removed. The radiologis was the one who recommended I needed additional exrays done to insure all the tumor was gone before starting Radiation. It wasn't gone-the original Dr./surgeon then insited I needed a masectomy!!! The radiologist is who recommended Dr. Castillo who in turn did the final surgery but also said I didn't need a masectomy. The emotional & physical experience was calmed by Dr. Castillo & staff & I can honestly say I feel like he saved my life. The entire prodedures and follow-up were wonderful. If I had to have surgery again he would be my surgeon. I TRUST him totally. I am cancer free at this time! Thanks Dr. castillo!!!
This was the 1st time I had surgery and I did some research on the DR beforehand, which was positive. After the surgery, I have to concur. He answered my questions, including going over the questionnaire I printed out from the internet. He didn't mind and actually encouraged it. After the surgery I was surprised at how fast I recovered and how little pain there was. Even the staff at the hospital had complimentary things to say. I would recommend him for anyone thinking of having surgery. Dr. C is very experienced and willing to take time to make sure you understand what he is going to do, what will happen and what is needed for a successful recovery. Also, the follow up visits were included in the surgery costs. I'd recommend him to anyone who needs surgery.
