Perfect fit for my troubled teen who, prior to meeting Dr. VanCamp never liked her psychiatrists. He's energetic, kind, respectful, relatable, impressively knowledgeable, and most importantly, given her a sense of hope again. I would very highly recommend him

Received very good care from this doctor. He was thorough, a great listener, and emphasized a plan that prioritized MY goals. I've seen several psychiatrists in the past but he's the best by far. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

All I can say is WOW. He's really easy to talk to, quickly put me on the RIGHT medications, and has helped me to find strength after a lifetime of feeling hopeless. I pray he's practicing for a long time.

Truly the only reason I was going to Westlake Psychiatry. Not sure where he is practicing now but guess I'll keep Googling until I might find him. He just has a way of connecting that's difficult to explain but very authentic. God bless you doctor. You lifted me from a very dark place and my family and I owe you a huge debt of gratitude. I always looked forward to our visits and hope to continue care with you soon.

I was at an all time low the first time I met with Dr. Vancamp. He was extremely compassionate, and knowledgeable about what I was going through and was spot on regarding my treatment. I’ve been thriving since. I highly recommend reaching out to him and putting yourself in his care. He is trustworthy, smart and he cares about your wellbeing.

Stop! Don't go any further! You are lucky to have found the most wonderful doctor in LA. I've been searching for a doctor to treat my psychological problems for over 5 years and I have finally hit the jackpot. Dr. VanCamp is the most caring, considerate and kind Doctor I have ever met. He genuinely cares about his patience and renders superb care. He listens to you and responds accordingly. Don't hesitate to call him for an appointment. I promise you will be thrilled that you too joined his team. I worship him!

Best ever! Worked wonders with my child! But he's no longer at Family Psychiatry in Westlake Village. Anyone know where he is? Would love to make an appointment with him to keep my child on the right path. It took years to find someone this caring,professional, and competent. Please share if you have contact information.

Such a nice man. I was panicked by a family member's issue and he quickly returned my call and spent 30 minutes with me on the phone. It was outside business hours so his dedication to caring for my family put me at ease. He has a really nice calming voice which I'm sure is great for psychiatry. Highly recommended!

In a world full of doctors that don't seem to listen, what a relief to have finally found you! If you're ever cared for by him, you'll know what I mean. Bless you Dr. VanCamp, with the year I've been having, I couldn't have appreciated your help more.

We saw him in the ER with our two year old who had an extremely high fever. He is absolutely amazing. He went above and beyond for us and made sure to rule out every possible cause. His bed side manner is amazing and you can tell her truly cares. He also knows his stuff and will explain every test and procedure before doing it. So incredibly thankful for him during this difficult time with our little one.

Finally had a moment to recognize a doctor that didn't take care of me personally, but I definitely noticed him take a moment to come out into a VERY busy ER waiting room to bring a homeless person next to me a sandwich, blankets, and a soda. He even put his hand on the guys knee and said some kind words. The look of gratitude on the guys face is something I'll never forget. My daughter was well cared for, but this doctors compassion for someone less fortunate was memorable and heartwarming

Travelling from LA back home I had an unexpected detour to the ER. I was treated SO well by this gentleman. He evaluated me on the ambulance bed as soon as I came in and was so calming and professional. Very quick to ease my anxiety and pain. I'm grateful to him for making my difficult experience pleasantly memorable.

What stuck out most to me about this man was his kindness. The ER in Oxnard is totally chaotic and the wait takes forever, but when I was finally able to speak to this nurse practitioner, it made my visit totally worth it. My problem wasn't serious and I was a bit embarrassed by that, but he treated me with concern and respect. I felt like he talked with me like he would his own family which really helped relieve the anxiety I was feeling. Hopefully there are more out there like him!.
