I find I require a relationship with my medical providers. Some one who understands my depth of knowledge of my conditions and hears me, my concerns and works hand in hand with me toward the common goal of my better wellness. I appreciate Dr Camara and her research into my history with all providers throughout the medical systems I am treated within. I am so pleased to have established care with this physician, I can't begin to tell you what this means to me.

I am a very complicated patient and Dr. Camara has been invested in my health. I have had excellent cardiologists and ok cardiologists, but she is exceptional.

Dr Camara was fantastic! Took lots of time w me and I felt heard. She's amazing!

  Mar 5, 2024
I thought Dr Camara was kind caring and very knowledgeable with regards to my concerns. I would highly recommend her.

  Feb 14, 2024
Dr. Jocelyn Camara is an excellent cardiologist and communicator. I would recommend her to very few people because it is incredibly difficult to get an appointment at her office. It is an ongoing problem, especially if told to make an appointment for 6 months out. She's very responsive to questions and issues through the patient portal, but with heart issues it requires in-person examination. I wouldn't want her to see more patients because it is so difficult to get an appointment, and that's the only reason I would not recomment her to anyone but a trusted friend in need of an excellent doctor.

I was treated with respect and kindness

  Jan 11, 2024
Of all the doctors I have had in my life, Dr. Camara is my favorite, the one I feel most at ease with, and the one I have most confidence in regarding my medical condition.

  Dec 27, 2023
It took a while to get the appointment scheduled. The internal referral process was a little bit frustrating. The medical assistant was courteous, but not particularly friendly or interested. The provider was outstanding.

  Dec 26, 2023
Dr. Camara is the best. I am glad she is my cardiologist. My only complaint Is Legacy's system for making appointments. I have to make an appointment for six months from now. I can't make the appointment now, but when the calendar Is open, Is a real battle to make a timely appointment. Not sure what the solution Is, but the current way Is SO frustrating.

  Dec 6, 2023
Dr knew all my many complicated issues and was very prepared for visit. Only issue is the process of contacting your office. No one explained what was reason for so many things. I am getting older and forgetful. I need to call for an appt and hang up the phone with a date & time. All the stuff like calling back on certain day is just too much.

  Dec 6, 2023
I feel good that Dr. Camara consults with my oncologist on my tests/treatments.

  Dec 5, 2023
Great cardiologist but hard to get appointments

  Dec 1, 2023
It is very difficult to make an appointment with the scheduling center though phone. Most of the times, I like to make an appointment in person, even though I have to drive 20+ minutes to the clinic.

  Nov 17, 2023
Dr. Camara has been extremely helpful going over all of my medical history, and with detailed explanations to my questions. I am very pleased and look forward to her assistance in the future.

Excellent care by Dr CamaraNote: no other medical appointments in last 3 months so med review not applicable

  Nov 13, 2023
I have been thru a variety of cardiologists since 1st being dx'd with heart failure. I "found" Dr. Camara by calling the RN Hotline thru my insurance. Dr. Camara is a superb provider who is not only knowledgeable but considerate, thoughtful, observant, open to questions and feedback, and up to date professionally.

  Nov 3, 2023
Dr Camara always make sure we understand her explanation of the results of the EKG done at the clinic and always explain well to patient why she is reducing the dose of meds provided we monitor three x a week the BP! She is very respectful and courteous to us! She is very knowledgeable and able to follow up the heart condition of my husbandOverall will recommend her to our family and senior friends without reservation or hesitation.She Is a valuable assets to the medical group and hope she continues her practice In the field of cardiovascular for years to come.

  Oct 20, 2023
Always take care of any concerns or questions I have.

I feel very blessed to have Dr. Camara for my cardiologist. Making an appointment is very frustrating and involves long waits on hold. She is worth the wait.

Waited long time for appointment

Dr Camara is wonderful. I have the utmost respect for her and the care she delivers.

  Oct 2, 2023
Dr. Camara exudes excellence in knowledge and compassion. I am so impressed with her, she never makes you feel small or unintelligent. And, at the very end of each appointment, she ALWAY asks if you have any questions and also emphasizes if there are ANY problems day or night to get ahold of her. She's one of the most outstanding doctors I've ever encountered personally or professionally. She's truly an asset to your organization.

  Sep 29, 2023
Dr Camara is caring, friendly and knowledgeable. Had a blood test and she responded immediately with a prescription that I needed before leaving on a vacation. She's very good and listens to my concerns.

  Sep 27, 2023
The staff was great and the doctor was very good at explaining everything to me and patiently listened to my concerns.

  Sep 27, 2023
Thank you

  Sep 26, 2023
Dr. Camara is a jewel!!! I wish she could be my PCP - she listens and remembers what we have previously spoken of. She is smart, kind, and and caring. I wish her medical assistant would step into the waiting room and look at the person she is calling for the next appointment instead of opening the door and just calling out their name. It is insulting as a patient. It's hard enough going to a doctor; we should all be treated with respect.

  Sep 26, 2023
Dr. Camara is an outstanding physician and cardiologist. She and the staff are very responsive to me and go out of their way to respond when I have questions or health needs. The problem is Legacy's policies regarding making an appoint or getting in direct touch with the office. It's just very frustrating.

  Sep 25, 2023
Dr Camara is exceptional

  Sep 15, 2023
I waited for months to get an initial appointment but once I was seen, I was very impressed with the quality of service Dr Camara provided.

  Sep 11, 2023
I showed up at 8:15 for an 8:30 appt as instructed and the office was locked with lights off. The sign at the door says it opens at 8am. I subsequently had to wait in the hall and then rush through the paperwork, some of which was duplicate from what I completed previously online. The doctor was exceptional. The nurse was great.

  Sep 7, 2023
Spent time investigating and clarifying my questions and developing a comprehensive health plan for me both short term and strategically.

  Aug 29, 2023
Dr. Camara is wonderful!

Dr Camara listens attentively and responds with good advice and counsel.I am very happy that she is my cardiologist.

  Aug 25, 2023
I switched to this Cardiologist from another in the same practice and am much happier regarding this choice.

  Aug 21, 2023
I was very pleased and impressed with Dr. Camara. I appreciated that she asked more than once if I had any questions as I was seeing her for a new medical issue.

  Aug 21, 2023
All my answers relate to Dr. Camara and her clinic.She is an incredibly kind, knowledgable, compassionate, organized, perceptive, and supportive practitioner. I trust her, rely on her, and her support and knowledge of my life (major) impacting condition and willingness to work with my choices for Treatment has been so deeply appreciated. She truly understands and Is so patient and respectful of me as a human being AND also clearly Is comfortable In her own skin. What a GEM she is.

Dr. Camara is a wonderful doctor.

  Aug 10, 2023
Very pleased

  Aug 10, 2023
Although the wait was longer than anticipated because Dr. Camara had an emergency, her staff kept me apprise off what was happening and what to expect. I willingly drive 30 minutes across town to receive her expert care and that of her staff.

  Aug 9, 2023
I originally had Dr. Hamdan and he was absolutely amazing and one of the best doctors I have ever seen. I wasn't sure someone could live up to him but Dr. Camara certainly did! She came knowing my complicated history and listened with understanding of what I had gone through. She's kind and caring! I am in great hands with Dr. Camara!

  Aug 9, 2023
Dr Camara is the best Dr I have had in a long time for truly listening to what I have to say and making me feel heard and valued.

I have complete confidence in Dr. Camara and I deeply appreciate her care for me.

  Jun 22, 2023
Dr. Was up to speed on my entire medical history and was very helpful in helping me understand the next steps in my care.

  Jun 21, 2023
This visit was my first visit with Dr. Camara who will follow my case. I enjoyed meeting her and will gladly continue with Dr. Camara as my new cardiologist.

  Jun 21, 2023
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Camara. She is really great. BUT... This game of needing to make an appointment in six months is so tiring. I understand that the appointments have not been released yet, but the notion that they may be open on this date, and that you have to try to figure out when to call back is really difficult. Then, when I finally call and try to make an appointment, there are none available -- even months in advance

  Jun 14, 2023
Dr. Camara is an excellent clinician. I feel well taken care of.

  Jun 6, 2023
Camara Is the best.I am a challenging, atypical case. They have taken excellent care of me. Best team ever.

Great doctor! So glad to have her.
