Specialties

Dr. Hector Castro has the following 1 specialty

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

scam artist

I went to him for botox and juvaderm. Initially he showed me pictures of other patients he had done. He used two syringes of juvaderm total but only injected one side of my lip and only injected about half a syringe in my lips ... awhen I begged him to use the rest of the syringe he refused. He also told me that I would need to come back up to four times (paying each time if course) to receive the look I desire. I'm familiar with lip enhancement and this is not how its done. Most doctors recommend at least a full syringe to get a noticeable difference. He is a scam artist. I was charged for two s yringes but he refused to use or save the rest of the second one and did what he wanted not dwhat I asked for. Be gets five stars for fast talking sand zero stars for providing the service I asked for.

Start using checklists and you will save lives. Continue to reject checklists and you will continue to (mal)practice medicine.

Unprofessional / Office Moved

If you like a doctor that cxls appointements but doe not call to tell you then he's for you. If you like a doctor who moves locations and doesn't call you and you can't find him or a new number to get your medical records then he's for you. What a horrible, horrible situation he has put his patients in.
