    Low compassion and poor communication. Hope to never see him again.

    I've been a patient of Dr. Collins for 10 years and have been completely satisfied with his staff as well as Dr. Collins. I've had several surgeries due to carpal tunnel, trigger finger and both elbows for tennis elbow that I'm glad I had done that allows me to be pain free now. He is such a caring Doctor and does great work and I most definitely recommend him.

    Had ulnar nerve decompression. Surgery was unsuccessful and cause tendon tears. Went to another doctor, had an mri that confirmed the damage. Doctor denys it, acts ugly, raises his voice, and bukkys my wife and i out of his office. He also lied on office records stating that he offered none surgical options and he did not. He said surgery was the only way. Please note when you visit that he will not let you talk so you can imagine if things dont go well. Dr. Collins is a bully.
