I liked Dr. Camara very much. She came in and introduced herself then got right to the exam. After she explained everything I had to do to get better control of my issue. She also answered all the questions I had .

Been going to Dr. Camara for quite a while and I like her very much. She doesn't usually keep me waiting and is very efficient. Takes care of the problem - explains everything to me and is finished.

Dr. Camera is special! She is knowledgeable, caring, and relatable; and she readily gives whatever time is necessary for the appointment. I wish that she could attend to all of my medical needs. Also, I welcome her hug.......
