Specialties

Dr. Jorge W Castro has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Excellent...

I have used Dr. Castro now for maybe 10 years or longer. He has been and is an excellent doctor. He's on time and listens and generally is concerned. I realize he is no longer with Grayson and Associates and am currently trying to find him. He is the only reason I went to this group. I really could careless about any bad reviews because I know what kind of doctor he is. I have seen psychiatrists and psychologists for well over 20 years now and was so happy to finally find a doctor I could trust. Dr. Castro would be a very valuable asset with any practice he joins. I plan on using someone temporarily, just for meds, until I hopefully can find him. I am very traumatized by his leaving. He's one of the only doctors I have ever trusted and liked and really really hated to see him leave. I really don't have a clue what I'll do if I am not successful in locating him.
