I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Camara as my Doctor.

  May 3, 2023
Dr. Camara knew important information about my health issues and did a thorough analysis of my heart issue and how it might be related to my other health conditions.

  Apr 25, 2023
Dr. Camara is wise, caring and very professional. She listens intently. Her mannerism exhibits kindness and caring --- plus she is extremely knowledgeable about cardiology. Her electro-physics technician, Shawn (he did the pacemaker check) was extremely smart and kind.

  Apr 24, 2023
Dr Camara and her cardiology team are excellent. I wish I could say the same for the rest of the Legacy system.

  Mar 24, 2023
Dr. Camara takes her time in answering any questions I have, which I really appreciate nowadays since most doctors try and rush you to get to the next patient. She always listens and answers all questions that I have.

  Mar 24, 2023
Dr Camara is extremely caring and knowledgeable. She listens and encourages me to try making changes without just adding prescriptions. She's too notch with her communication and advice.

  Mar 17, 2023
I was using a walker when I went in for this visit. The office doors do not have a handicapped access. Fortunately, someone opened the door for me. I thought all medical facilities needed to meet ADA requirements.

  Mar 17, 2023
Dr Camara is always interested in how I am doing. Always let's me know I can contact her at any time. It's not always easy to get my six month check up. Her calendar is very busy.

  Feb 27, 2023
I really like Dr. Camara. I feel that she listens to me and answers any questions that I might have. I never feel rushed during my appointment. This time I was asking about a specific type of female doctor that would be taking new patients. She found one in my driving area and her nurse called me that same afternoon with a name. I was so appreciative since I had been having trouble finding the right doctor. For me she went above and beyond the call of duty. High marks for Dr. Camara!

  Feb 10, 2023
Dr Camara listens carefully to my concerns, treats me respectfully and confidently, advises me appropriately on alternatives. I am very happy with her as my cardiologist.

  Jan 18, 2023
Dr. Camara is a superb cardiologist. When describing technical subjects, such as medications / possible side effects, or data points on an EKG or alternatives for medications or treatments, she gives a patient a clear explanation that is completely understandable to a lay person. She is a terrific listener, empathic, understanding and always gives clear answers and advice to questions.

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

  Dec 12, 2022
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.

  Dec 8, 2022
Dr. Camara has been great working to solve problems and working with me to come up with solutions about my well being.

  Dec 1, 2022
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.

  Dec 1, 2022
Dr. Camara, was the best. She listens and explains well. She over all, is the best Doctor I have dealt with in all my years.

  Oct 26, 2022
Dr Camara is wonderful

  Oct 21, 2022
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.

  Oct 21, 2022
Dr. Camara quickly looked up history of exams, procedures and prescriptions when asked and gave a very insightful overview of my health including history together - almost 6 years.

  Oct 18, 2022
I often have to schedule appointments way out -

Dr Camara is always patient and under of my concerns.

  Oct 13, 2022
A friend came with me to the appointment. She was so impressed by the concern and care provided that she requested information about getting an appointment with Dr. Camara. She has a cardiologist she likes, but would like to change.

  Oct 13, 2022
Nice helpful and a great experience throughout. Thank you

  Oct 13, 2022
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!

  Oct 12, 2022
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.

  Sep 27, 2022
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.

  Sep 27, 2022
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

  Sep 27, 2022
They really was interested in how a person health was and was feeling.

  Sep 26, 2022
Dr. Camara is great to work with! She explains things thoroughly, and takes the time to answer any questions we have. She outlines the next steps on the after-visit summary clearly, so we know what the plan is. I would definitely recommend her to others.

  Sep 21, 2022
Dr. Camara is very knowledgeable and has a kind way of delivering information. She NEVER fails to deliver and I feel very safe under her care.

  Sep 20, 2022
This was initial visit with this provider.

  Aug 31, 2022
I learned about a treatment I never heard about before. I was impressed. Perhaps it's a new treatment - but no one has mentioned it before.

  Aug 31, 2022
Dr Camara is excellent. Always caring, listen to what you are saying about your own body and respects what you say, also excellent memory.

  Aug 4, 2022
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.

  Aug 4, 2022
6 month follow up delayed to 7 months due to no appts available, not a problem as this was routine follow up and I had no new concerns

  Aug 2, 2022
My visit was very good, my only concern was getting the appointment. Which was scheduled for 6 month checkup but couldn't get in until 2 months later. Otherwise I think very highly of Dr Camara and staff.

  Aug 1, 2022
Dr. Camara is thorough, caring and personable. I feel like she knows me not only as a patient but as a person, not a number. She always answers my questions in a way I understand. I feel I am in very capable hands.

The Dr and technicians were very knowledgeable and talked with respect about my health condition.

  Jul 29, 2022
Dr. Camara is not only on of the best doctors I've ever had - but one of the most intelligent, caring, warm & knowledgeable PEOPLE I've known. My wife, - a nurse - so APPRECIATE her care & we both feel I am in the best hands for my medical problems. Thank-you.

Dr. Camara, her nurses and the entire cardiology team are excellent. They are always available to talk with on the telephone and if not, return my call the same day. They all are very caring and committed to their patients. They are extremely knowledgeable and take the time to answer all my questions. I'm very happy with my Legacy Cardiac team.
