He and staff were attentive to my 88 yr old mother in laws needs after breaking her shoulder. She fractured this same arm one year prior and he had to do surgery for that particular break which was in wrist and forearm. We have been pleased with the care she received from Dr Collins plus she tells us he is “very easy on the eyes” and I must say pics don’t do him justice LOL.

Dr. Collins completely misdiagnosed my son. I brought him in due to a hairline fracture of his big toe, diagnosed by a radiologist. Dr. Collins claimed there was no fracture and it was just inflammation and put my son on steroids. I took my son to another orthopedic surgeon, who quickly found the fracture in his big toe. He needed a boot or a hard sole shoe to protect his foot from further injury and over the counter meds for pain. The steroids were completely unnecessary. Also, be aware of the extra X-ray scam. We had x-rays already and we were told they could not pull them up, so they wanted to take more in their office. So, now we have to pay for x-rays twice. Once to the radiologist who diagnosed my son correctly, and again to Dr. Collins who apparently could not read the X-rays, took more, and then misdiagnosed my son. Dr. Collins was not open to hearing concerns and I did not feel like he was really listening to us at all. I would not recommend his at all.

Very disappointing. Doc didn't want to order an MRI originally bc of previous surgeries. My old surgeon recommended MRI with an arthrogram. MRI showed a rotator cuff tear & he told me there was no tear. He had no idea what was wrong with my shoulder. Had old surgeon do surgery & rotator was torn 75%. How does one miss that?
