Clearwater, FL |
I've been his patient since 2001 when I was diagnosed with colon cancer. He is top notch, listens, is concerned with what I have to say and I highly recommend him.
Clearwater, FL |
I have an endoscopy done yearly and invariably I am left with a sore throat, but, not when done by Dr. LaCamera. I have no ill effects. He makes his patients feel like they are his only patient.
Palm Harbor, FL |
The doctor I would recommend but not his office staff. It is impossible to talk with anyone when you call. You have to leave a voice mail and 50 /50 change you will get a call back. I was never sent my results and called several times asking for them. I finally had to go to the office to get them. Because of all the above would not recommend. Office staff is awful.

Very happy with my initial visit with Dr. LaCamera. Spent an appropriate amount of time with me. Reassuring as to my situation and explained things clearly.
Trinity, FL |
I was a patient of Dr. LaCamera. He is a great Gastroenterologist. But they have a "no sick appointment" policy. I had an appointment scheduled at the end of next month(October.) When I had a problem and needed to see him, I was told he was booked until December. I explained to the staff the urgent need to see the Dr. and was told he had nothing available. On the 24th of September I was admitted to the hospital with Diverticulitis. I need a doctor who when you are sick, will see you ASAP.
Tampa, FL |
My mother has been a patient for 12 years of Dr Lacamera. This one star is not based on the doctors work, which has always been good, but his office. After being seen at the emergency room and needing an endoscopy immediately, this office was contacted by multiple physicians with not one phone call returned. When my mother called her self and finally got someone to answer the phone, after leaving several voicemails they pushed her off until October. Then they offered for her to leave a complaint

Dr. Lacamera has the best bedside manner and cares about what is going on and listens to any comments and answers any questions. I have been too many Doctors and worked as a health care professional and would rate him one of the best, and that includes all the Doctors I worked with four years.

He complained about the hospital I was in. Was not helpful in answering my questions. Shrugged his shoulders and did not know whats next.
