Richard Castillo, MD
My wife is an ISU Alumni and always loved this community. When a position became available in 1990 at a local Emergency Department we jumped at the chance. It has been a great place to raise our family. After 24 years of Emergency Medicine I was looking to transition into something that would give me more time with my family and allow me the opportunity for patient follow-up.
Practicing Phlebology allows me the opportunity to get to know my patients better and hear their stories, something I really enjoy. Not only am I given the opportunity to help someone; I am learning something new that helps me on my life journey. This specialty also gives me greater opportunities to spend time with friends and family, truly one of the best gifts anyone could have.
My wife and I have been active in our church and in the school, as well as supporting community and neighborhood events. We enjoy watching our children in swimming, tennis, golf and volunteering as photographer for various school events. Some of my other interests include mission work, golf, skiing, and going to sporting events.
