Michael P. Castro, Jr. states hat he has submitted a plethora of administrative remedies and filed a couple of grievances to DepCor director J.B. Palacios.
The inmate also alleges that still nothing has been done to resolve his request for medical treatment. Castro says he has been continuously ignored to receive treatment and x-rays he requested for an injury to his right shoulder that he had this past May.
His complaint is against both DepCor director and its physician, Dr. Young Chang.
