Dr. Castro Says...
"Having outstanding results and surgical expertise is extremely important, but I've learned that nurturing the special connection between physician and patient is what makes the difference. My patients inspired me to concentrate my efforts at a single, focused program at Sequoia Hospital. This lets me provide a level of care and attention that my patients deserve when putting their hearts in my hands. My greatest satisfaction comes from surrounding my patients with complete support before, during, and long after their operations. That's why I have a dedicated team that shares my philosophy of hands-on care to make your experience the best and safest it can possibly be."
