Great experience. He and his staff answered all of my questions I had before and after surgery. Very professional. I would recommend Dr Collins for any orthopedic issues.
in Lake Charles, LA |
Both my husband and myself have used Dr. Collins for orthopaedic surgery. He is the most attentive, caring and thorough surgeon we have ever had. He did my total knee replacement, and my husband's rotator cuff surgery, as well as some less invasive ones, and we would not let another orthopaedic surgeon touch us! Dr. Collins is kind, sensitive to our problems, and never ever rushes us in or out. We have recommend him to friends that are equally satisfied. Simply the best in Lake Charles.
in DeRidder, LA |
Even though we have an hour's drive, I wouldn't have any Dr. but Dr. Collins! I've had two complete shoulder replacements and couldn't be more satisfied! His staff is like old friends that we look forward to seeing. Try him and you'll stay with him!
in Sulphur, LA |
He performed my knee surgery back in Feb 2016. Very professional, his staff, and the staff of the hospital called me the day after surgery to check on me and to see if I needed anything or had any questions. Highly recommend Dr Collins.
in Lake Charles, Louisiana |
After driving all the way to Lake Charles to have my sons hand fixed , they waited till they put him in a room to tell us they dont accept his insurance. So if the faculty doesn't have a clue what they, why would I even think the doctor is any more competent than his ignorant staff. I wouldn't take my dog to this facility
Lake Charles, LA |
Highly recommend Dr. Collins! Best doctor around, will definitely be using him for all orthopedic needs! Staff is super friendly and his offices in Lake Charles and Sulphur are both, outstanding places!
