Very calm, attentive doctor. Took time to talk about my medical history before even discussing my current concerns. Made me feel valued and at ease.

Dr Kamara was very thorough and to the point. He was patient and took in all the information. And scheduled a second visit while prescribing a medication to help address my ailment as well as a referral to double check thesymptoms to make sure everything is covered. And his staff were excellent.

Great bedside manner, and actually took time to listen through my symptoms. I like that he has an online system set up that makes it easy to share lab tests appointments, and diagnoses. Was the first doctor who DIDN'T brush meoff and prescribe me a PPI, which gave me awful side effects that were worse than my actual condition. Thank god. Also was quick to suggest a follow-up appointment, and immediately did a few lab tests. I appreciate the promptness, the medication is working, and feel like I finally have some peace of mind. Nurses were pretty cool and friendly too. Definitely keeping him as my primary care.

Dr. Kamara is a good listener. To me, this defines a good bedside manner. He was patient with my questions, and his staff was very efficient in processing me through all the steps of my physical, including X-rays and blood work.

It was just enough. I got the prescriptions I needed but I could've used more information and a more thorough consultation.

My 85 year old mom really likes Dr. Kamara. He is laid back and doesn't lecture her. Isn't an alarmist.

Dr. Kamara was warm and friendly and professional. I did not wait long in reception and he took me right into his office instead of making me wait a long time for him. I felt he was fully present with meand my concerns. He was quick and efficient while being an empathetic listener. I felt comfortable and left with exactly what I came in for. Would definitely return to Dr. Kamara.

The doctor wasn't very thorough. As I was telling him my symptoms, it seemed that he had already established his diagnosis and wasn't interested in what I was telling him. The office also seemed overly concerned about getting my money and how I was going to pay.

I was INCREDIBLY impressed with my whole experience. Dr. Kamara and his amazing office staff remind you of what it "used to be like" in the world of doctors before insurance and schedules were forced to become crammed with patients. Iwas welcomed into the office by the incredibly personable and friendly receptionist/office manager. She made me feel like an old friend, when in reality, it was my first time in the office. Dr. Kamara was SO incredibly nice and VERY thorough. I'm SO used to having to rush through information you want the doctor to have, and yet very quickly I realized that Dr. Kamara was wiling to take the time with me and treat me like an actual human being. He was incredibly thorough and very responsible in how he practices medicine. I honestly couldn't have been more impressed. I had actually just gone in as a "one time deal", but the office and the good doctor won me over and this will be my regular doctor now. Thank you for restoring my faith in the medical practice!

Poorly maintained office, I also had an elderly patient barge in to my consultation and the doctor seemingly did nothing to stop her! Thank god I was on my way out as i didn't want to spend another minute in there!I have also found out at a later date that the medication I was prescribed by him was meant for patient of over 60 and I'm in my late 20s! Will never be seeing again!

Dr. Kamara is a compassionate and caring doctor. I have never felt rushed, he listens and offers great care. His practice brings back the old days of feeling secure and cared for, not like the new high tech factories where you are feel like you are on a conveyer belt.

Dr Kamara is a very courteous and professional Doctor. I feel that his practice is a bit of a let down in regards it is very antiquated. A remodel would definitely improve my experience.
