Just spoke to Dr. Castro's office and he does take Medicaid but it has to be a secondary insurance he accepts Medicare as the primary and Medicaid for the Secondary. Just thought I'd give anyone looking the update.

I don't have a big house, I don't have the nicest car, I don't have a lot of money. I have much more, I have Good Friends, a Big Loving Family, and a Wonderful Husband! That to me is worth more than all the riches in the world.
