Originally from Bogota, Colombia, Medical Director Julian Castaneda, MD brings a wealth of medical knowledge as well as patient and staff experience to The Judge Group that is critical to serving our healthcare clients and ensuring the health of our employees.
Julian has recently learned from the COVID-19 pandemic that healthcare is a rapidly changing and unpredictable force in our society. He hopes to continue to serve and improve the lives of those who need clinical guidance and support.
Julian attended Ursinus College in Collegeville, PA as a biology and Spanish major on the pre-med track. In addition to preparing him for medical school, Ursinus provided Julian with the opportunity to fortify his Spanish language skills, which he utilizes daily in the communities he serves. After Ursinus, Julian enrolled in Temple University’s School of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. Despite his deep interest in many medical disciplines, he fell in love with the field of anesthesiology. Today he serves as a registered anesthesiologist at Reading Hospital and other surgical centers in Berks County, PA.
Julian now resides permanently in Reading, PA with his wife Brenna and three children. He spends most weekends on the basketball courts or baseball and soccer fields watching and coaching his children. He loves to travel to new places, but his heart is at the mountains and the beach. He has a passion for cars and is always enamored by the latest tech gadgetry.
