    Can't think of anything that would have made it any better

    The doctor made me feel very much relaxed about what the discussion was. You went into detail. It was very proactive. He made me understand the importance of following instructions that were given to me by my primary care doctor and how they work together. I just saw that I learned a lot which in turn would help me in the long run and the long run preserve my health and wellness and the in the right direction as opposed to roughly getting works.

    Dr. Camacho is wonderful. He is my cardiologist, but he looked at the total picture giving guidance, even the last time in in the some of the supplements that I take the pride don't need to take.

    I think Dr. Camacho it's a very good doctor, very good person. He speaks directly and tries to give me advice of my medications and I appreciate that greatly. But ultimately he lets me make the decisions. So I think that's great quality on him.

    I have total and complete faith in Dr. Camacho. He is professional. He makes you feel comfortable in an appointment. I would recommend him to anybody and I would not go to another cardiologist, but him.

  • Dec 01, 2018

    He was a little short and didn't...she didn't feel like he listened to her and was kind of not very nice in his reaction for a couple things.

  • Nov 30, 2018

    Very kind

  • Nov 29, 2018

    Very good experience. Both Dr. Comancho and his colleague showed real interest in my health. They also provided interesting and useful information and suggestions. I never felt hurried, and both doctors were friendly and engaging.

  • Nov 25, 2018

    Dr. Camacho was very professional. He was very personal and warm and understanding to my situation for not only my needs but also my mother who he is the cardiologist for as well and I would recommend this doctor to anybody and everybody. I look forward to seeing him in the future and I have no doubt about my care or anyone else's. Thank you.

  • Nov 22, 2018

    Excellent command of subject matter. Excellent ability to communicate.

  • Nov 21, 2018

    Dr Camacho is simply great. Top notch cardiologist who makes abundant use of the other resources at OHSU. He's dealing with a difficult diagnosis, and has called in specialists from several areas. He is the first cardiologist I've used who is seeking to answer the question "why," rather than just treating symptoms. Fantastic. Impressive. And I hasten to add, very charming and with a great sense of humor. You should be proud of him.

  • Nov 20, 2018

    Very prepared for my visit. He had totally familiarized himself with my history and previous tests. Very informative and caring.

  • Nov 18, 2018

    I like Mr. Camacho. He puts it like it is and he just seems like he knows what he's talking about. And he's good.

  • Nov 09, 2018

    The doctor was on time, extremely professional, he made things extremely clear to me. I'd recommend him to anyone.

  • Nov 06, 2018

    Thoughtful and consciences

  • Nov 04, 2018

    He was the first Doctor or NP that I have seen in a year and a half that was caring but also gave me the facts and wants to work on improving my situation as much as possible. I consider myself very lucky to have him. Also, the resident he had with him was absolutely wonderful as well.

  • Nov 02, 2018

    He carried a balanced way about him. He definitely wanted to move towards a possibility of helping me with an issue that was....needed to be taken care of. I'm waiting for advancements on that. Other than that, he seemed to carry himself well.

  • Nov 01, 2018

    He is a very professional doctor.

    Dr. Comacho represents the highest qualities one hopes to find in a physician: a provider who is committed to excellence, education, integrity, compassion, and communication. His genuine care combined with a willingness to explain and educate using visual aids was powerful. He took time to make sure we understood how the heart works before he explained the specifics of my heart failure, and how best to treat and care for it. The education piece is invaluable. Many physicians assume the patient either doesn't understand or doesn't want to understand the anatomical details of a problem. Dr.Comacho did neither. He assumed we would like to be "team players" in managing my heart failure, an assumption which involves extra time in patient education. His approach has generated some hope for my future, and restored my faith in a medical profession too often characterized by what seems like indifference, although it's probably many things. Dr. Comacho went "the extra mile" by examining my old medical records from another state, asking questions to better "connect the dots" to my present condition, and then he listened intently for other clues to better inform his evaluation. He communicted a strong sense of "mindfulness" by being fully present during our appointment. He was direct in confronting a few of my misconceptions, but not condescending at all. I enjoyed his positive approach, sprinkled with bits of humor. Of all the physicians I have seen in the past year (in my state of residence), Dr. Comacho has done more to remove the "shadow of fear that is fed by silence", and to restore hope in my soul. I would like to add that his nurses, especially Elizabeth Cloud, RN are another wonderful source of information, kindness, and support. Nurse Elizabeth provides a weekly interface between my needs and the doctor's opinion which relieves my concerns as needed. I have never had such a supportive experience in the medical community. Thank you!

    I want a provider that lets me explain things and not tell me time is short. I drove 350 miles and rented a motel to honor this appointment.

    Great doctor. Listened carefully. Fantastic insights. Funny!

  • Sep 22, 2018

    He is always clear, succinct and willing to take time to answer any questions that O may have. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of watching him interact with a resident who was shadowing him for the day. He was using my case as a teaching opportunity and I enjoyed learning more myself as he talked with thme resident.

    He?Dr. Kamucho was very thorough in his examination questions and looking at the whole picture of what the symptoms were that [Name] [Name] was experiencing. Changing the meds, and really giving us a clear direction and comfort in the direction we were going. And feel totally confident in the information and the healthcare that he has provided.
