What People Say About Dr. Fernando Camacho, MD
Reply
My Mother is a patient of Dr. Camacho. He showed empathy, knowledge and patience. The staff is unorganized. He gave her a date for chemo. No follow up call. He should have an assistant that cover questions and concerns. The date came and went without a return of my mother's call. Who knows how much damage this anxiety caused. My mother seems to like him personally and don't want to deal with the process of changing physicians. The office finally called her after my mother's primary dr. Emailed.
