Could not have asked for a better doctor for my 5 year old. He was so attentive and kind, calm and knowledgeable. There were a lot of unknowns but he gave us all the options and helped us make an informed decision while trusting us as parents to know our daughter’s needs. Love him!!

What a wonderful Doctor and Surgeon! My third ENT in the Dayton area and the one who finally took the time to thoroughly examine my condition and try all possible remedies. He actually takes as much time as necessary to ask questions, answer mine and check for understanding. When I finally opted for surgery, he did extensive work with very little post op pain or even discomfort. My wife is now being treated by Dr. Collins for vocal chord issues. Highly recommend!

Dr. Collins performed two surgeries on my nose at the same time. The surgeries were a success, but his follow-up appointments were also outstanding. He explains all processes in a way that is understandable by not only me, but my wife as well. He is always positive and upbeat, but truly professional. He made me feel comfortable to ask questions and he allowed me time to discuss any concerns. I highly recommend him and in fact, I have already referred him to two family members.
