What People Say About Dr. Donald Kamerer Jr, MD

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!

Considerate. Kind. Highly intelligent and skilled in surgery. Works well with his partners. If you need someone, you want him on your healthcare team.

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!
