in Walnut Creek, CA |
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.
