Dr. Collins is a wonderful doctor. He was very pleasant and perfectly competent. The office snd surgical staff are friendly, skilled and efficient as well.

I was referred to Dr. Collins by my endocrinologist, who said that he was very thorough. I found this to be true, that Dr. Collins listened carefully to my account of my symptoms and did all of the necessary tests he could do to try to find the cause. When the cause could not be determined, he offered to refer me to Mayo Clinic for further testing. I appreciated the thoroughness and will be seeing him for follow-up of gastroenterological issues in the future.

Dr. Collins has TERRIBLE bedside manner. After many procedures, 8months of severe pain and losing 30 pounds I finally got a diagnosis! Dr. Collins refused to give me medicine and his nurse told me to avoid leafy green vegetables- over the phone. They said the dr wouldnt see me for a month. He also misread a CT scan and told me I had something wrong with my kidneys so I went to the ER. And there was nothing wrong with my kidneys. So I spent an entire day in he ER and got a $300 bill for no reason
