Dr. Castle always takes the time to thoroughly explain my test results and discuss any health care topics that I have. I have high confidence in his ability and find him to be the best of all of my care physicians. I very much appreciate the fact that he takes the time to recommend the right resource to address my non-cardio issues, unlike the nurse practitioner in my family doctor's office who sent me to a general surgeon for my thyroid issue rather than connecting me to an appropriate endocrinologist. Dr. Castle's office responded quickly to my request for an appropriate resource (Dr. Lashin) to address my thyroid problem.
