Specialties

Dr. Bill Castaldo has the following 4 specialties

  • Critical Care Medicine

    Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
    Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

  • Hospitalist

    Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
    Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
    They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

  • 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.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

What a joke.

My mother was recently at Upper Valley Medical Center for a thyroidectomy and had the unfortunate pleasure of being dismissed by the staff doctor, Dr. William Castaldo. Because of her medical history of Pulmonary Hypertension (and his apparent area of expertise - Pulmonology), Dr. Castaldo felt it neccessary to question medicines her specialist had put her on, as well as, berate her about not knowing certain information about her condition. He went as far as saying, "Well why are you on ________?" and after answering, my mom replied and he said, "That's not why you get put on that medicine." Now, I'm not a doctor, but I do know that it's completely unprofessional to question medicines that another specialist has put a patient on. Clearly, each doctor has his/her own reasoning for putting a patient on a medicine, it's not like she put herself on it. Also, it seems quite asinine for him to question it when she isn't even his patient!Dr. Castaldo also made a note to us of how he had talked to two family doctors in his practice and they "haven't seen her for years." Well that is because she's smarter than to doctor with doctors who can't diagnose her when she's sick.But on top of everything,... this wasn't any of his business. She was there for a thyroidectomy, and he made no comment on the procedure or after care or recovery time... nothing.If you have an appointment with Dr. Castaldo, please reconsider it. You'll be so, so glad you saved some time and avoided him.
