Run as fast as U can. My mom was diagnosed in July, had surgery in September and passed in December. Dr Cameron is a control freak and will not let any other doctors or nurses advise on care. Everyone at UCLA is scared of him and they don’t advocate for the patient. He does not believe in checking blood work and my mom got septic, pneumonia and didn’t leave ICU for 60 days and missed the window for radiation. We got her home and it had spread to her whole lung. She passed 12/16/18.

Dr. Cameron removed the upper left lobe of my lung because of cancer. I have been his patient now for over 6 years and I can emphatically say that he is a gifted, dedicated and personable doctor. I am so thankful that he was referred to me by my friends and I travel 3 hours to see him.
