Dr. Collins is very knowledgeable. He did a good job at explaining my disorder and treatment in a very clear way.

I had an endoscopy from Dr. Collins in July. At my consultation he put me at ease and I felt I was in the right hands. My internist highly recommended him and she was right. The procedure was painless and the staff he surrounds himself with are amazing. I am having a colonoscopy next summer and have zero anxiety about it. I would highly recommend Dr. Collins.

EXCELLENT DOCTOR. VERY HAPPY WITH HIS KNOWLEDGE AND SKILL
Glenwood Springs, CO |
I had to wait 25 minutes in the waiting room and then 25 minutes in the office before Dr. Collins showed up. I talked to him for 10 minutes about getting off a prescription because of bad side effects. My bill was $367. His first advice was to double the prescription I was trying to get off of. His office is all about procedures and prescriptions and the all might dollar instead of trying to help patients with lifelong health advice.
Hi, I do apologize for the wait. We do everything we can to stay on track with our patients, but from to time, we do run behind. Many times this is due to spending a little extra time with the previous patient. We can't always help that. Recommending that a patient double the prescription of a drug that she is having a side effect to is not consistent with the way I practice medicine. Please feel free to call our office and come in for another visit (free of charge, of course) for resolution.

I tried to make an appt with Dr. Collins but within any decent time frame, only his PA was available. She was an alarmist, gasping at my very ordinary symptoms. She immediately said endoscopy... and how about a colonoscopy while we're at it (even though I was 2 years out before needing another)! I didn't realize it was a sales shop. After my endo, the office never called me to see if things were good. I felt like a number in this office, not a person.
I am sorry that you had this experience. My PA, Mrs. Colleen Farnum, has worked with me for years and is very well versed in Gastroenterology. After endoscopy, I personally speak with all of my patients. I also send a letter of results to every patient within 2 wks of their procedure. We follow up in the office for all ongoing issues. If you would like to come in and discuss your symptoms, we would love to make time for that. Our office number is 970-230-9623. We care at RFG.
