Ratings for Dr. John Castiglione
Rushes your appointment; but, makes you wait hours to see him. Does not focus on preventative care. Primarily has Geriatric patients and forgets how to take care of younger patients. You can go in for migraines, he will give you a prescription; but, does not look into why you have them. Gives you a script and off you go. If you have a family history of something ie: diabetes, cancer etc... does not think hmmm maybe we should investigate to see if you have it, if you are presenting with signs/symptoms?! His office hours are restrictive as well. His secretary does not answer the phone. You have to listen to a long voicemail message in English, then Italian to ask a question/book an appointment etc...not patient care focused at all.
I have been a patient of Dr. Castiglione's for over 10 years and he has always been very responsive to requests and available when needed. The wait can sometimes be long in his office, but I believe that this is because he spends the time with each patient they need, never rushing you out of the door. In my experience his knowledge, experience and professionalism is top notch.
I totally agree with the first evaluation which suggests he is biased against WSIB patients and is working with WSIB to reject authentic claims. He rejected my claim without even seeing me or speaking to another WSIB doctor who supported my claim ( and who had done a thorough personal assessment of my condition). Big surprise that WSIB sided with Casiglione's view! To protect yourself get more than one opinion on the validity of your claim.
Dr. C is a great doctor. I have been seeing him for many years, and when I went in with a simple complaint of pain beneath my ribcage, he had me do a complete work-up, including an ECG (heart), which he reviewed with me immediately following. He examined me thoroughly, and followed up the next day with the results of my other tests (which he had ordered on an emergency basis). He was very patient, and he made me feel very reassured. When all tests returned with the likely cause being meerly gas, I was glad I had gone to see him as it eased all my anxiety. Thank you Dr. Castiglione, for always taking such good care of me, and my family.
I have been going to Dr C for many years, my whole family goes to him. Yes he does not chat much, but that's ok with me, it's just part of his personality. He gets down to business and listens well. He is a good Doctor, very thorough with tests, and always helps me. His staff is great too, very kind and helpful. Thanks for Everything Dr Castiglione, you're the best.
Dr. Castiglione is an excellent family doctor. I have been seeing him for many years. He is very caring and an excellent listener, easy to talk to and he is not dismissive about any concerns you may have. He orders appropriate tests and follows up on results. The fact that he sees patients on a walk in basis is very convenient because you know that he will always be able to see you when you need to be seen.
