I was told by Dr Kamerer that I had thyroid cancer. This was the third type cancer in one year. I just wanted the cancer gone. So I was scared and trusted that my surgeon knew what was best for me. This surgery changed my life. My vocal cords were damaged. My one remaining parathyroid was damage meaning I will have to stay on a lot of calcium daily or risk going in to a coma because it drops so low. That happened on day four after my surgery. I know this could have happened at the hands of any surgeon. For my post op visit I saw Dr. Kamerer’s PA. She was completely capable but I had to be hospitalized twice. Why didn’t my surgeon check on me? He saw me the day of my surgery before I went home in and that was it. I’ve never seen him again. Dr. Kamerer does NOT show patient care. He seems more like money hungry. My life changed that day. Where was my surgeon? No where to be found. No return calls. No emails. Nothing. One good thing my cancer is gone.

I was recommended to Dr. Kamerer for a thyroid issue. I found out through him that I had papillary thyroid cancer and needed a total thyroidectomy which he did. Since my surgery I have had to be readmitted to the hospital because my calcium dropped severely low. I have learned this conditioned is permanent. He damaged my parathyroid during surgery. My vocal cords were also damaged. I’m unable to sing or yell or any high pitch. I tried numerous times to contact him. He has yet to return a call.

Dr. Kamerer is an A++ doctor. He handled a set of complex ENT problems that I had with ease, as if they were common problems. I would recommend him highly. I live in Pittsburgh now and wish that he were here!

Dr Kamerer was great to have him as my Doctor. He described my type of cancer I had. What the process was going to be, how many treatments that I was going to have, what the experience that I was had during the treatment. Very encouraging on the outcome. And very thorough.

I was referred to Dr. Kamerer for removal of a tumor on my thyroid. He completely disregarded me, told me there was nothing wrong with my thyroid, and refused to help me. He would not listen to the symptoms I was experiencing, wouldn't let me ask questions. I was only able to meet w/him for 10 mins before he walked out the door, as I was crying asking him to help me. I've seen a lot of Dr's & never once had one that was so unwilling to help or listen to my concerns. Extremely disappointed.

I was told I was one of the youngest people to come to him with Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma and I was kinda scared. Dr. Kamerer really helped and did great! My scar is also healing very nicely, people say it looks like a plastic surgeons work! I would always recommend him!
