“I entered this field because it allows me to help patients get better with multiple treatments that work. I enjoy solving patients’ problems. I devote time talking to each patient in order to obtain a global view of the health issue or disease and how it affects them. I hope to give every patient high-quality, compassionate care because each one is special.”
Dr. del Castillo is proficient in the care of female diseases from adolescence through menopause. He is well-versed in gynecologic surgery, offering his patients both traditional and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery for such problems such as urinary loss and pelvic floor relaxation.
Considering patients holistically and not just as people with diseases, he also offers acupuncture treatment as an adjunct to traditional Western medicine for managing many medical problems related to pain, stress and obesity. He has seen the ravages of excess weight on many of his patients and presently offers a very efficient and outcome-oriented medical weight loss program for patients who know firsthand the difficulties and complications of carrying excess weight.
Dr. del Castillo is also the medical director for Essential Medical Beauty Treatments. Essential offers the latest medical technological breakthroughs to enhance your appearance. Services include: Vectus® laser hair removal treatments, facial and skin treatments, cellulite reduction using Endermologie®, SculpSure® and Icon IPL and laser®.

"I enjoy what I do because I get to work with a lot of different people. I like my position and the people I work with. I also like to help out patients with all their needs. When not at work, I enjoy my three-day weekends. I go out shopping and spend more time with my little boy. I also get to go to my oldest son’s baseball games."
Teresa del Castillo, Office Manager
"I enjoy my job because I have daily contact with our patients. We are always trying to provide the best healthcare possible. It is very satisfying to see Dr. del Castillo's patients coming back year after year and referring their friends and family. When I am not at work I bike, walk, read, practice yoga and enjoy cooking new vegetarian dishes."
