Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been a patient of Dr Camara for over 10 years and she has provided excellent care on each visit with a caring and compassionate manner. Her pleasant personality is matched by her obvious concern for her patient's well being. She is a wonderful practitioner and an even better person.

I saw Dr, Camara as a first time patient this morning for a full body exam. I have had one other such exam and what a difference. I never even laid down on the table. She never even examined or looked at my thighs. I pointed out a few things and she said they were fine. The total time she was in the room with me was 7 minutes. That is ridiculous. I saw a few reviews that said she was very rushed. There are many positive exams and I opted to believe those. Live and learn. I do not feel very confident that I was examined at all. She is very nice and cheerful, but I am not looking for a friend. DO NOT MAKE AN APPOINTMENT.

I was extremely unhappy with Dr. Camara. Went in for a whole body exam and she barely looked at me. I had to point out several items that I was concerened about because she never addressed them (didn't even see them). Most of these reviews says they didn't feel rushed, boy she was sure in a rush the day I saw her. Now just biding my time till my insurance will pay for me to see a different Dr. for a thourogh exam!
