Jed Castillo MD is a general surgeon who specializes in diseases related to the abdominal wall, hernias, stomach, gall bladder, appendix, small intestine, colon, thyroid, parathyroid, skin and soft tissue, as well as vascular access. Having a mother who is a critical care and recovery nurse, Dr. Castillo was exposed and drawn to medicine at a young age. He finds medicine to be a very rewarding career and surgery allows him to work together with his patients to heal and make an immediate difference in their lives. During his residency program, he was awarded the Gold Humanism Resident Award, Excellent Resident Award in General and Minimally Invasive Surgery, and was Administrative Chief General Surgery Resident. He is certified in daVinci Robotic Surgical System and SAGES (Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons) Laparoscopy and Endoscopy. Dr. Castillo trained at Vidant Medical Center in North Carolina, a very high-volume, high-acuity tertiary care center, which was responsible for a third of the state’s population and gave him great exposure to the benefits of general surgery as well as its inherent risks and complications. He appreciates the diversity in general surgery because he is not confined to treating one part of the body and it also allows him to treat a wide variety of patients.

Dr. Castillo is originally from New Jersey and his patients would be surprised to learn that he lost almost 90 pounds during medical school through proper diet and lifestyle changes. He enjoys snowboarding, swimming, hiking, and especially travelling the world with his family.

(name removed) and Dr. Castillo were both so caring and really helped me to feel calm and safe during a simple procedure. The front office receptionists were very cordial and I felt really welcome in the office. I also like the idea of getting checked in and registered via email a day before my appt. Thank you.

My only issue is that I did explain that. I am a recent. I recently developed POTS after having covid the second time and with POTS you need to have extra fluid administered and I asked for that and I did not receive it. I asked off every every nurse that I spoke to you, and I also spoke to a doctor about it prior to the procedure, but I was only given about 400ML of fluid and everything. I read I should have gotten at least 2 liters, and so now I'm pretty much having a very bad POTS flare with the terrible migraine and other than that, I mean he was wonderful and the nurses were great. I just didn't get the fluid that I had asked for, and I thought I was going to receive. Thank you. Bye.

In the evening after my procedure I received a follow up call from Dr Castillo. This was my 4th colonoscopy and I don't remember in the past that they call me how I'm doing. It's good to know we still have doctors that truly follow up on patient. I'm thankful and grateful that his my Doctor. As an employee at PIH, I'm proud to say PIH is lucky to have Dr Castillo in the network.

Dr. Castillo and staff took care of my needs. Both him and staff are a resource. I have been floating around Dr.'s appointments in Los Angeles for the past decade. I had a major lumbar spinal surgery that was marginally successful. I've seen many specialists, care givers, therapy clinics, VA, MRI's, EKG's, clinics that dr refers in a "good old boy" providing favors to colleagues, pharmacies, pricey $ RX, and pain management clinics. In addition I'm a combat vet that had to use the VA. I still get treated for this too. I've seen a lot of doctors. Too many sometimes. (name removed) and staff are perfect. Nice people too. For my procedure everything was provided and no questions left to ask. They are kind and demonstrated a high caliber of bedside manner that has been long forgotten. I would recommend Dr. Castillo to family and friends anytime. It's a better journey than using most alternatives. Let this team be your Sherpas for general surgical procedures.

Hi. I just wanted to say that the entire experience for me was very great, and and I felt like I was being cared for the whole time. It was kind of an urgent medical matter, and I was in an uncomfortable amount of pain, and so it was really awesome that that things were just taken care of so well by everyone from the check in person that that help me to the nurse and then to finally Dr. Castillo. Literally, everyone was just the best form of human that I could ask for, and I'm really grateful to to every last one of you guys for that care. It was awesome, and I feel great. So, thank you guys again. Have a great 2022.
