Why is it necessary to wait so long??? We have been waiting an hour and a half, REALLY??? Other than that he's a good doctor.
Atlanta, GA |
Staff unprofessional, office filthy and average wait time is over 2 hours. Dry bedside manner. Doesn't care about his patients and equipment old and dirty. Health Department needs to make a visit
Atlanta, GA |
I'm "giving" him 1 star and that's being very...VERY generous. I wouldn't let him treat my dog...my dead dog. He is at best unresponsive. My very best friend is currently one of his patients. Today, she went to the ER directly across the street from his office. He would not even take the time to walk across the street to see after his own patient who was in need of emergency care. They ended up admitting her to another hospital & he shows up like he's a knight in shining armor. NOT! So over him.

He's unresponsive and very unprofessional with his patient's time. I've waited Up to two hours just to get lab results from him. I had to go off on his nasty rude receptionist and wrote her up to her supervisor Leah who never responded. Terrible staff and service.

I would highly recommend Dr. Collins. he has a great "bedside manner" and will have you laughing even when you are in pain! excellent knowledge about his field/s and willing to go the extra mile to make sure his clients' needs are met. And if that is not enough, his staff is EXCELLENT, compassionate and well informed! Even if you have to wait to be seen, it is well worth it and you understand it from the number of patients in the waiting room, and the fact that Dr. Collins does not rush!!!
Jonesboro, GA |
He misdiagnosed husband's condition, as a result, resulted in his death. Think twice about using this doctor.
