Always patient friendly. Always clear directions for my health.

Very kind, caring and knows what she's doing. I had a ski condition a couple years ago that no one else could figure out. She went above and beyond to figure it out. Skin condition, gone!

I arrived on the wrong day and I live over an hour away. The Dr took pity on me and squeezed me in. I really appreciated that. I had my treatment and was on my way.

Dr. Camara is an excellent dermatologist! I have been going to her for many years now, and I have never had anything but a wonderful experience with her. She even personally called me a couple of times when I had a melanoma to help me understand the diagnosis and reassure me. She is a jewel!

Google Forefront Dermatology
I am always very pleased with the staff, the care received, the courtesy, professionalism and especially with Dr Camara. I have had many visits there and a few procedures and never did I have any negative experiences. Dr. Camara is a top notch physician with a fantastic “bed-side” manner that puts patients at ease and comfortable with what she is proposing to do. She creates an atmosphere of confidence that makes it very easy to trust her assessments, recommendations, and abilities. I would not hesitate for a minute to recommend the facility, the staff, and especially Dr Camara to anyone. Chuck Agonis
