Mr. Kastner is a wonderful pediatrician. He takes time to talk to the parent and patient. He gives parents an opportunity to ask questions they may have. He doesn't rush you during your visit. I would recommend him to family and friends. He has been my son's pediatrician since my son was 6 months of age. I am grateful for him!

It normally takes a while to get an appointment, but we were able to get in the next day. Dr. Kastner was very thorough and recommended x-rays just to be sure. We were conveniently able to do those right away as well, and he messaged through my chart with her results on the same day.

I wish more doctors were like Dr. Randy. His kind manner, genuine concern for our children's health and ability to discuss every aspect of the appointments in an understandable language brings so much confident knowing that he's a doctor who goes above and beyond to care for his patients. We never feel rushed and he always listens to our concerns then give answers we always understand. He's a true treasure to have as our children's pediatrician.

I am highly impressed with the set up of care during the Covid-19 pandemic. I felt my 3 month old was safe and out of harms way and made me feel better as a parent. I kept postponing bringing my child just out of fear. Thank you for going above and beyond to everyone. this includes the wonderful nurses and Doctors, too!
