Dr Camps-Romero’s work has been strongly based in the practice of clinical psychiatry. He began his career at Kaiser Permanente in northern California where he was elected Shareholder/Senior Physician. He has worked in a variety of clinical roles from managing his own panel of outpatients to serving on the Consultation Liaison service. His service in multiple leadership positions include being a founding member of the Labor Management Partnership which was the executive body for the adult psychiatric service and serving as a lead psychiatrist in helping to establish the Depression in Primary Care Initiative. He was selected to serve on the Quality Committee with oversight of patient care and safety issues, clinician performance and systems review and recommendations.

After leaving Kaiser Permanente, Dr Camps-Romero developed a successful telepsychiatric practice, while living abroad in Japan. Upon his return to Florida he provided psychiatric services for populations that were medically underserved.
