About Cathy Anne Castillo, MD

  • Dr. Castillo grew up in the small south Texas town of Beeville and has lived in Round Rock for 18 years. She is married with one daughter, and in her free time, goes to all her daughter’s swim meets. She also loves baking, traveling, and her spin bike. Dr. Castillo’s favorite place is in a movie theater!

I enjoy caring for the geriatric population. I want to help them live productive lives and help them achieve what matters to them. I prefer to promote prevention. I like to address problems early on and head-on so that we can avoid problems down the road. I am also interested in treating diabetes. It is a very big problem in my family, so I have personally seen its effects.
