Specialties

Dr. Alvin R Castillo has the following 1 specialty

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

One Star

Horrible experience. My almost two year old went for a dental surgery to women's and children's and this "Dr." Of anesthesia was the one to put her to sleep. After the procedure and I got to go back to see my kid. She was crowing and her respiration were off. Long story short we kept asking for them to do something or discharge her so we could get her somewhere where they would. He stated over and over she is fine she is fine. Finally a nurse there listened and got us a pediatric consult which confirmed exactly what we were saying she was in respiratory distress!!! Before the pediatrician even got into the room completely she heard her and said respiratory distress!!! I had to sign papers to give my child a final resort breathing TX because of this. Which had several risks including a rapid heart rate to which my daughters heart rate went into the 200-250 range. And this Dr. Wouldn't listen to anything we said just kept saying she was fine and denied the consult for a pediatrician. Worst nightmare ever a simple procedure supposed to take to be an hour in and out tops wound up a 24 hr stay in the hospital. Parents beware!!!
