I (along with my whole family and in-laws) have been seeing Dr. Camara for a number of years and she is always extremely friendly, courteous, caring, and thorough. She takes time to explain what her findings are, her recommended treatment, and what to expect post procedure. She does her very best to minimize the pain which any procedure may produce.

My daughter has been seeing Dr. Camera once a month for the last 5-6 months. Even with the precautions in place, our wait was not long. Dr. Camera and her nurse/assistant are always thorough and pleasant. Dr. Camera rocks!

I really like the online check-in. I take 16 prescriptions and it was so much easier to select them on my tablet than writing them in the Dr's. office.
