“I deal in general pediatrics and everyday situations, but I try to have a balance between serious and fun,” says Dr. Castaldo. “I like that to compliment my practice. I take good care of my patients and make sure parents are well-informed and then sprinkle in some fun.” 

Dr. Castaldo’s scope of care includes comprehensive evaluation and treatment in pediatric and adolescent medicine. 

One fun element that Dr. Castaldo incorporates into his appointments is the ukelele. “It really makes kids feel like they’re bonding with us here,” he says. Dr. Castaldo plays upbeat songs and invites patients to try out the instrument for themselves, as well.
