Dr. Castillo Kontak has been my cardiologist for 2 years now. In the beginning she was determined to get to the bottom of my chest pain and didn\'t dismiss it when the test after test said all was good. Last test with the iodine indicated 3 blockages, 1 at 80%. I had a stent 4 days later. I so appreciated her continued care and concern. Every appointment is pleasant and professional. She\'s a very good doctor.
