Dr. Oliver W. Caminos specializes in the outpatient care of the primarily cardiac, vascular, complex and end-stage cardiomyopathy patients, with special emphasis in congestive heart failure. In the course of his career, he has distinguished himself as a lecturer in the subject of geriatric cardiology, arteriosclerosis, and preventive medicine. He strongly believes that outpatient diagnostic and medical treatment is the way of the future in medicine. Committed to avoiding hospital admissions whenever possible, Dr. Caminos explains, "As doctors, we have repeatedly found that physicians, in a modern-day outpatient facility such as Pittsburgh Cardiovascular Institute and Med Health Services, can perform the same evaluation in two or three hours that a hospital performs in one week's time. Our expeditious, same-day testing allows us to diagnose without delay, and proceed with treatment, which is essential in modern times specially for the care of advanced and complex pathology patients." Dr. Caminos' goal is to help put the modern-day tools that are essential in providing state-of-the-art treatment and diagnostic technical procedures in the hands of physicians - tools that are often stripped from physicians in the outpatient setting by hospitals and other large organizations. Dr. Caminos completed his residency in Internal Medicine and Cardiology in Argentina at the University of La Plata's General San Martin Institute, and later fulfilled his cardiology fellowship at the Western Pennsylvania Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. For more than 25 years, Dr. Caminos has specialized in clinical and invasive cardiology. In the last several years he has put special emphasis in the care and follow-up of Congestive Failure, CVA and end-stage complex vascular patients. He also provides medical training at Pittsburgh Cardiovascular Institute in vascular and cardiac sonography to imaging technicians and students from several sonography schools. Dr. Caminos currently has privileges in Internal Medicine and Cardiology at the Western Pennsylvania Hospital, the Western Pennsylvania Hospital Forbes Regional Campus, and UPMC Shadyside Hospital. He is licensed in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida.
