Last fall, a metal wrist implant I had for 16 years broke into pieces and caused intense pain. I met Dr. Cammarata and he immediately took what had happened seriously. He explained what he recommended needed to be done. He performed surgery which involved removing the broken implant and replaced it with one of a different design. The wrist healed well and for 7 months now, I have had no pain. I consider myself fortunate to have met Dr. Cammarata.

He was somewhat abrupt, clinical, no warmth at all. Don't try to interrupt him with a question when he's talking, he'll just steamroll right over you and keep talking. Have no desire to go back to him.

The worst experience ever seeing a doctor.. Arrived for appointment 20 minutes early, walked into office you would have thought I was going through TSA, in Atlanta. People who have appoints have to wait in line, with people who are just walk-ins to their urgent care facility. When I got to the counter, I was told my appointment was changed to three weeks later. I said no, I had a confirmed appointment to today. The desk staff were completely clueless. They walked me to a phone to speck

Dr Cammarata is by far one of the worst Doctors I have used. I am in the process of suing him for services paid for but not delivered. I went to Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem North Carolina and was completely healed in four sessions. I asked Dr Cammarato to consult with Baptist Hospital for additional help that he might be able to use in the future. To my knowledge he has not consulted with Baptist Hospital and appears he's not interested. Suggestion: find another doctor for yourself.

I am an active man who uses my hands in my daily work. Dr Cammerata performed a carpal tunnel surgery on my left wrist a couple weeks ago. During the diagnosis he was extremely professional showing total interest in my symptoms and then working to schedule the required surgery. The surgery went so smooth and quickly. It was amazing how the surgery corrected the long term problems with my hand. The incision was small, the pain was minimal and the next day, I had full use of my hand, full use.
