Review for Dr. Collins

Excellent doctor who cares deeply about a patient, ordered tests for me to detect any physical problem I may have to cause tiredness and change in mood, found UTI, not treated by other doctor. Becoming a doctor must have been truly a calling for this man. Cannot say enough to praise him.

Dr. Herzfeld listens, problem solves and executes in an incredibly efficient way! She is a dynamo.

Review for Dr. Herzfeld

I have been seeing Dr. Howard Weiss for years. He was able to spot problems before they become series and recommended minimal treatment (over the counter drops) to prevent more serious problems. He always has time for questions and provides detailed answers. Highly recommend him
