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!

Dr. Camara always has a smile and is happy. She takes the time to throughly explain any issues and concerns, as well as proper care and definitions of skin cancer. She never rushes. Always a pleasurable visit. Staff is very nice too.
