We have been very satisfied with Dr. Collins' level of expertise and recommend him regularly.
in Greenfield Center, NY |
Saw me for 10 minutes, no medical records on myself and decided I should pay for Vestibular Therapy out of pocket for my vertigo and Labyrinthitis that I have had for 3 1/2 years. I know he was trying to save the insurance company alot of money by denying my request to see a vestibular therapist. In the span of 10 minutes, he decided this. No amount of tears and frustration would sway him. Don't ever waste your time seeing this man. He doesn't care.
