When your musculoskeletal system isn’t working properly, you may need to see a rheumatologist. Rheumatologists are physicians who diagnose and treat conditions and diseases of the muscles, joints, and bones.
Improving our patients’ quality of life is our goal. To help our patients deal with the often debilitating effects of musculoskeletal problems, arthritis, and autoimmune disorders, we offer a variety of treatments and procedures.

Dr. Castro treats patients with chronic rheumatic and autoimmune diseases like osteoarthritis, gout, fibromyalgia, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthritis, myositis, vasculitis, etc. She chose rheumatology as her specialty because “it allows me the opportunity to serve and care for patients who have a variety of diseases and establish an ongoing relationship with them. I grew up in a family that taught me that you don’t need to do big things to help others. Even small things make a difference. I enjoy having a career as a rheumatologist because I get to make a difference in people’s lives.”
