awesome doc

I saw Dr C in his private practice for the last 2 years. He is wonderful, caring, very thorough, very smart - and, most importantly, funny :). He appreciates questions and has all the answers; if he doesn't, he'll find them. Dr C has a more pushy and somewhat no-nonsense personality which may scare those of us who appreciate someone a bit gentler. Though I was put-off at first, after seeing some others who know not NEARLY as much as he does - I happily accept that part of the picture. His fees are not small - but sooo worth it.

Extremely poor treatment

Dr. Collins was totally incompetent in treating my husband's problem. He gave us little information about what he planned to do, no information upon discharge from the hospital and no interest in follow-up whatsoever.

Dr. Collins is an excellent Doctor. He was always one step ahead of me. I use his knowledge he gave in many different ways in my life today. If you have a problem with addiction he is the Doctor to see! He will save your life

Dr. Collins saved my life

Eric Collins is the psychiatrist to see if you have addiction issues. His fees are sizeable, but he is worth it. I've been to a number of psychiatrists, but wasn't able to make a real change in my life until I began seeing Dr. Collins.
