Dr Camara is a wonderful doctor! I am so happy I see her. If I have a complaint, it's that getting a timely appointment is way more difficult than it should be

Dr. Camara is always well prepared and able to answer all of my questions about my BP issues. She took the time to set up my new Kardia Mobile device for me. Always a delight to see her.

Getting a scheduled appointment can be a problem. I need an appt. in six months. I was told to call back in 4 months to schedule an appt. My past history in doing this has resulted in my calling up to 4 X to get an appt. - as there is no scheduler available.

The doctor is, in my opinion, very good. Scheduling an appointment is almost impossible. I am always told "we are 3 months out, and our schedules are unavailable now." My family has asked me to change providers for this reason.

Securing an appointment is an issue. Doctor tells me to return In 6 months. Since the time to return Is Important, I call for an appointment 2 months ahead of time. I am told the schedule Is not yet open. When you call again at the time you were told the schedule would likely open, no appointments are available. Then you get to wait for a call back from someone who will attempt to find an opening for you somewhere. Very frustrating. I'm calling not for a dermatology problem. I'm calling because of a HEART problem!

Didn't do all the blood tests same day. Had to come back next day to do! They forgot the 1st time. Didn't like the time and gas for this. Wish I could have stress test & other/ordered test done here, not at a hospital so far away in Tigard. I don't dive into Portland either. Cause of my age, echogram.

Dr. Camara is a wonderful cardiologist who took me on as a patient because of the death of my cardiologist. The only reason I wouldn't recommend her is that I don't ever want her to get so busy she burns out and quits or has TOO many patients and not enough phone staff. She's a good doctor, a wonderful human, and a straight shooter.

Dr. Camara is The most caring, helpful, willing to listen, cardiologist that's out there. I'll give her name to friends and family all the time. The doctor knows what she's talking about and she is really involved with her patience and I really truly appreciate that. Thank you

Dr. Camara is one of the best doctors I have ever had. She is thoughtful, thorough and kind. I couldn't ask for a better cardiologist, and I will continue to drive the 30-45 minutes to see her even though I could see a cardiologist 15 minutes from my home.

Any delay in the appointment was due to Covid and my request for an appointment in the afternoon. Only medical issue is that I commented my B/P at the office or my primary doctor's is always lower than my tester at home. I've replaced it twice already after taking it in to my primary doctor.
