Waited an 1 1/2 to see Dr. Collins. Started with a 15 minute wait in the waiting room and the rest of the time in the examine room. When he finally saw me started with the usual exam then wanted to dilate my eyes which would have extended my visit another 30 minutes for dilation plus the extra time to finish the eye exam. At that point I decided I had been there long enough. Told him I was out of time, I had been there long enough and was already late for work. So if you want to spend all day at this office in a cool waiting room this is the place to go.
When I had an appointment with Dr. Collins, I could not believe how his bedside manner had changed from my first appt. He spoke in a rude tone of voice the whole time. There is a lot of time spent waiting. The day I was there he had very little patience when I asked a couple questions. Do not want to go back to him
i have been a patient of Dr.Collins for over 15 years and have found he and his office staff to be among the highest trained in the area. They care and always follow up on my office visits. I have never waited for more than 15 minutes. When he has an emergency in his office the staff always let's me know. He is excellent and highly trained in his field.
