"I saw Dr. Camacho many years ago at Montefiore Hospital, He is one of the best doctors I have ever encounter and I had many. He makes you feel important, he talks to you about all available options. You will not go wrong with him. I saw him for a temporary medical issue I was having , if not I will still be his patient."
