Dr. Luis H Camacho has the following 3 specialties
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.
- Hematology & Oncology
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I believe Dr. Comacho has issues delieving tough news to his patients. I've been on all 6 of my mom's doctor visits. He initially was great by answering questions and telling us not to worry. The appointment where he delivered the news he spent 4:34 seconds with us. Every subsequent visit we get on average 9 mins. He accused her of not following his instruction due to NOT taking all of her pain medication. The bottle stated take as needed. If she wasn't on a time crunch we would move to another doctor.
Dr. Camacho and the staff at Kirby glen are very good at what they do. BUT St Luke's is a bureaucratic nightmare. It is routine for them to lose tests results or paperwork often requiring the patient to do the leg work to find the missing items. So routine that the staff accepts it as the best that can be done. Cancer patients have enough stress as it is, they don't need a hospital to pile on with ineptitude and institutional laziness.
