Immigrated to the United States aged 11, the son of Peruvian working class parents, Dr. Castillo worked his way through high school and graduated with honors from John Paul VI High School at the age of 16. He decided to work towards becoming a doctor, attending both Seton Hall University and receiving a B.S in Biology and a B.S in Chemistry. After attending medical school and serving his hospital residency at Harlem Hospital for Columbia University, Dr. Castillo opened his first office in Paterson, New Jersey, hoping to serve the Spanish speaking communities of one of New Jersey’s largest cities, in addition to an office located in Oakland, New Jersey.
As a licensed medical doctor, I have worked with insurance in the medical field all throughout my career. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has failed to alleviate any of the problems that I have personally seen as a practicing doctor.
Dr. Hector Castillo started his practice in order to serve the Spanish speaking community of New Jersey and help those in need. Because he has this experience, he is passionate about doing whatever he can to support small businesses. Castillo calls owning his own business “one of the most challenging but rewarding things I have ever done”.
