What People Say About Dr. Luis Camacho, MD
Reply
I met Dr. Camacho in September of 2011 when I was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma. He was very informative at the first appointment, letting me know exactly what to expect and the treatment process. He was kind, compassionate and caring throughout the entire process. Even though we live 2+ hours away, he was never more than a phone call away and willing to help me with any problem that arose between treatments. I recommend Dr. Camacho to everyone, never felt like a just a number!
