What People Say About Dr. David Collins, MD
Reply
Dr. Collins was attentive, considerate and informative. He took his time with the initial exam, and listened and addressed all my symptoms. Some of my symptoms may have nothing to do with my issue, or may be anecdotal, but he stayed attentive and concerned. I needed a consultation with a Neurologist immediately, and Dr. Collins was the first available, so I booked it before reading reviews about him. I am so glad I didn't because if I had, I would not have seen this excellent and caring D

Dr. Collins uses outstanding skills to see that his patients get optimal care. His knowledge of research results and treatment modalities have been a gift. He has gone to bat for me with insurance companies to obtain the most helpful results. I have had DBS and Dr. Collins uses his excellent programming abilities to assist my neurological treatment. I also value the fact that Dr. Collins gives the time so beneficial for follow up care. He has my highest recommendation.
