So fortunate to be accepted as Dr. Castellano's patient. Excellent explanations of new diagnosis while I was in the hospital & continued with explanations & treatment plan at the follow up office visit. I am so fortunate that I had Dr. Castellano care for me after my diagnosis of A-fib.

Dr. Castellano is the kind of doctor we all hope to have. First, she really listens. So often in my experience, doctors appear to half-listen as they are typing on a keyboard, and don't take the time to establish a personal contact with their patients. Dr. Castellano and I sat together and actually had an extended conversation in my first visit, where she listened to my past medical history and new concerns. She asked meaningful questions, made accurate observations, and scheduled necessary testing before we would move forward to making certain determinations about treatment. The point is, Dr. Castellano took the time to satisfy my concerns without making me feel rushed and leaving with things left to address. This rarely happens in my experience. Second, Dr. Castellano's manner is caring, yet professional. She helped me feel confident that I would have answers to questions. And third, Dr. Castellano explains things in straightforward terms I can understand. She drew diagrams to explain certain results from my testing during our second meeting. These were helpful, and I was able to use them to explain test results to my family later. In summary, I am so thrilled to have such a caring, knowledgeable, and competent doctor as my new cardiologist. Thank you, Dr. Castellano!

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Castellano from my first meeting with her. She is warm and personable. She listens without typing on a laptop, but face to face. You know she is listening because she follows up with questions based on what you've said. She has suggested a plan that I feel is smart and measured which we will follow to take care of several issues I have had. Dr. Castellano spent a long time with me. I never felt rushed to finish explaining my concerns. I am happy to say I have found my new cardiologist!
