From the time you walk in the door you are treated professionally, and with a friendly smile. The receptionist, nurses and Dr. Camara are professional, friendly and they always have a smile on their faces. Dr Camara makes you feel very relaxed while she is examining you. She is really a top notch skin doctor with a great support staff

I love Dr. Camara's personality and disposition. Also, nurses are friendly. When checking in, staff should obtain co-pay rather than after patient sits down being called back up a few minutes later.

I hate your new check in process! It’s too time consuming, and takes away from the personal experience of checking in with a live person!

Dr Camara is the most respectful and compassionate Dr I have ever gone to. I appreciate that in the waiting room the TV is kept at one end so I can get away from it and read with this annoyance.

The exam room wasn’t as clean as I would have liked to see. That said, Dr. Camara has a great way of relating to her patients. She’s explains things clearly in a way that non medical people understand. I’m very confident in her care.
