Coastal Anesthesiology Medical





Coastal Anesthesiology Medical Associates (CAMA) is a 25-physician general partnership practicing at three San Luis Obispo County hospitals and three Ambulatory Surgery Centers. The group formed in early 1998 as the combination of several established groups and individual practices in the area, to deal more effectively and efficiently with patient safety, community responsiveness and other medical practice issues. All CAMA physicians are certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology (or as recent graduates, are Board-eligible.) This means that your doctor has undergone rigorous training and testing, and insures the highest quality care and concern for patient safety.
