Dr. Camara's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Camara "Dr. Camara is a Board-Certified Dermatologist. She thinks dermatology is a wonderful field because it enables her to make people feel better about their skin.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Camara "Some of our dermatologists specialize in skin cancer treatment, some focus on cosmetic procedures. One used to be a nurse. Another is also a board certified pediatrician while another is boarded in internal medicine. No doubt, the eight dermatologists of Premier Dermatology represent a wide range of backgrounds and interests. But all of them have been tested, proven, verified and certified by the American Board of Dermatology.  Add to that collection of talent a highly qualified physician’s assistant as well as outstanding nurses and support staff, and the result is a level of care that’s simply unmatched."

She always takes good care of us. My husband hates the idea of going for this check up, but he likes her and she makes it ok for him.

Dr. Camara is always pleasant and greets me as though we are lifelong friends with a hug. She takes her time to give a thorough examination and I never feel rushed. She is our family dermotologist and I would recommend anyone else.
