“My 10-year-old son broke his foot on a Sunday afternoon. The next day, we tried to get an orthopedic doctor to see him, but we were having a hard time due to the holidays. Luckily, the only facility that had an appointment was SCOI. We saw Dr. Castaneda and we were very impressed. She was extremely thorough and took her time. She addressed my son and addressed all of our concerns. We recently had a follow up appointment with her and she again, took her time as if we were her only patients of the day. She shows us the x-ray and explained them to us. I am very impressed with Dr. Castaneda, along with the facility and office staff. -- Alex P.”
