He never directly answered any of my wuestions! All he kept saying was that my condition is really bad, and kept looking at me like this was my fault just because he couldnt figure out what cause the necrosis in my hips! Left the office crying histarically with no answers!

Patient

Dr. Collins is soft spoken and a man of few words, but he is very patient and kind While explaining your injury and his plan for repair in initial consultations, pre-op conversations and post op visits. He assesses your case and communicates the plan for repair with clarity and confidence. He takes time to listen to your concerns and answer all questions. He repaired my left shoulder in 2004 after a freak accident... Other surgeons would not touch it.... It has done great! He also did surgery on my right elbow after a fall in 2013, with excellent results. His staff is excellent and very friendly and helpful.
