About Maria DeCastro, DO

Dr. DeCastro was born in Ohio and grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago.  After completing her medical training in 1998, she worked as a locum tenens neurologist, traveling around the country filling in temporarily for other neurologists.  Because of her travels, she has been exposed to different practice settings, from military hospital, university medical centers, HMO’s to rural clinics and everything in between.  She has learned from various colleagues and developed experience with common and unusual neurological problems that were unique to the various areas.  She married in 2014 to her high school sweetheart.  She settled in Tampa, Florida with her husband to be closer to family.  In her spare time, she likes going to the movies and Lightning games with her husband, as well as taking walks with their two dogs.
