I was a patient 10 years ago and she removed several large cysts off my scalp, EXCELLENT experience. My daughters saw her for acne. I saw her recently for a body check and she had great advice. She is so sweet and compassionate but definitely knows her stuff. I have recommended her time and again and never have I ever gotten negative feedback.

Both Dr. Camara and the whole staff at the Morris office are great. Friendly greetings upon entry. Short wait times. A sense of real care for patients even if seen only occasionally. Have been seeing Dr. Camara for few years. She is thorough, informative, competent, and kind. I would highly recommend her and the Morris office of Premier Dermatology.

Dr. Camara listened to my concerns & answered all of my questions. She does speak VERY fast, and I had some difficulty in following all of her advice. However, the medical record of my visit was available to me within 1 day of my visit. The only drawback is the distance of the office from my home & the amount of time spent driving to/from my appointment.

Dr. Camera is fantastic. Very little wait time - waiting room or exam room. Early morning appointments for pre work. She's very concerned about any thing you are concerned about. Spends as much time with you as you need - you don't feel rushed.

I will continue to see Dr. Camara not only because of her extensive experience, but also because of the way I am treated by her and the entire staff.

I trust Dr. Camara 100%. Been seeing her since I was a minor and several members of my family see her too. Make the drive from Chicago to see her in Crest Hill because I like her so much! She's so incredibly friendly and takes the time to explain everything thoroughly, answers all of my questions and provides options. Such a great doctor!
