About me

Dr. Camacho specializes in the early diagnosis and treatment of heart failure. Research is an important part of his work. Dr. Camacho’s research includes clinical trials to develop new devices and medications for heart failure.

According to Dr. Camacho, understanding a patient’s individual needs is essential to treating heart failure. Creating personalized treatment plans is one of the most satisfying parts of his work. Dr. Camacho also works with a team focused on effectively treating patients in the hospital. This includes finding ways to keep people with heart failure from having to come back to the hospital after treatment.

Medical education is another important part of Dr. Camacho’s work. He teaches medical students in the classroom and in the OHSU clinics. Finally, he is involved in the cardiology fellowship program, the final stage in the training of future cardiologists.

Insurance

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
