Dr.Cambria is an excellent vascular specialist. He not only answered all of my questions, which I had several; he gave me the comfort level that I needed to move forward with a much needed procedure for a very rare vascular disease. He is not only a skilled and knowledgable surgeon, I feel he was one of the top doctors in his field. I am so happy that I was under his care.
