I was very impressed with Dr Chiu. Her bedside manner was great, and I was surprised how long she was willing to talk to me and answer my questions. I’m very impressed, and wanted to let you know that my visit to your office left a really good impression on me.

Best experience ever. Best doctor. Dr. Chiu-Collins has a great bedside manner and made me feel more comfortable than I could’ve asked for. Her work is superb. I had a rhinoplasty- she reshaped my nose and helped me breathe better.

Dr Chiu-Collins really understands the difference between what a man needs for a successful facelift and a woman. I am so happy with the results… I usually tell people I know that I “had a little face work done” I seem to get the same response “you look great, but not like you had a facelift!

Patient Comments (14)
I got Sculptra with Dr. Chiu-Collins in May, and the results are incredible. I love how I look! For me, it worked much faster than expected. Dr. C-C knew exactly where/how much to inject to give me the lift/fullness I was looking for. I didn't have any of the negative side effects of Sculptra that I read about, and I believe that was due to Dr. C-C technique. With her background in plastic surgery, I wouldn't trust anyone else to inject in the sensitive areas where Sculpt...
I am extremely happy with the mole removal Dr. Chiu did for me. I had a mole removed from within in eye brow and it was done so well the scar is barely visible after a few months!! Dr. Chiu is so precise in her work I am able to retain the shape of my eye brow - I do not have to put on makeup for my eye brows. I also got Sculptra and I am happy with how it lifted my features without looking like I had a major face lift.
I am very conservative and calculated when it comes to anything to do with potential changes to my body so I did a ton of research before I found Dr. Chiu-Collins. I loved that the themes I picked up on based on her patient reviews were things like "thoughtful", "smart", and "natural". It's been a year since I met her and I can say that not only do I have less pain in my jaw, but I can also wear my hair up in a pony tail and feel confident about it. I think incredibly hig...
I came to Dr. Chiu-Collins with no prior PS experiences. She spent time assessing whether botox for my masseter muscle would be the right decision and helped me understand the impact I could expect. I was overwhelmingly happy with the results and have come to her ever since then. As my needs evolved she's always helped me recognize when I was asking for something that wouldn't make me look better. She has never hesitated to tell me to wait or do less and is an absolute expert about facial PS
I've been to Dr. Chiu-Collins several times now, and each time I've been impressed with the amount of time she takes to listen to my concerns and explain the procedures (and their rationales) to me. I also love how natural I look leaving her office. There's hardly any downtime, and people compliment me on how I look without necessarily being able to put their finger on the changes. This woman knows her stuff.
This MD is a the epitome of the word "expert," with a keen eye for detail. I have been to many over the years and she is the only one I would trust with my face (or recommend to friends/family.) More pricey than some, but you are paying for her expertise and you can rest assured that your results will look incredible and natural.
I'm a huge fan of Dr Chiu-Collins. Her bedside manner is something for any provider to aspire to: she's patient, positive, confident, and never ever pushy. Most importantly, she's highly intuitive, and I've always trusted her judgment to be tailored to my own situation and personality. Not to mention her aesthetic eye for balanced, timeless facial beauty which I can especially appreciate coming from a design background myself. If I ever moved from the area I'd travel bac...
Dr. Chiu-Collins did my buccle fat removal surgery and I could not be happier! She listened to what I wanted, is very patient, friendly, and honest. She was available through every step of the surgery. After that I came back to her for a rhinoplasty consult. She was very honest about my expectations and she suggested chin filler to help balance out my features instead and it looks great, I absolutely love it and it made a world of difference in how my face is proportioned...
I was very lucky to find Dr. Chiu-Collins. She is a true professional, passionate about her work and I know I can trust her my face completely. Dr. Chiu-Collins and her staff are never pushy and always willing to listen, provide a feedback and find a solution that is right for you. I highly recommend this practice!!!
After doing extensive research on several websites I chose Dr. Chiu-Collins based on several positive reviews. I was not disappointed. She listened to my concerns and questions I had over having my "tear trough" filled. She gave me suggestions of what we could achieve with the fillers. I was even lucky enough to get it done the same day!! I could not believe my eyes as she injected one side and showed me the difference between the treated and not treated side. Ama...
Dr. Chiu-Collins is always so sweet and very knowledgeable. She gives her honest recommendations and insight without pressuring you to go one way versus another. She is absolutely amazing! I live and travel 2-3 hours just to see her as there is nobody else I trust.

Her understanding of facial structures are extremely excellent. I've had Botox done as well as Voluma facial filler. She knows just the right amount to use with precise placements to enhance your face naturally. The results are simply amazing. Completely natural without the look of any work being done. I have 100% trust in her judgement and work. My friends and family always say I look so young after a visit with her and it's definitely from her knowledge, experience and top notch skills!

I have always wanted to get otoplasty my whole life due to my protruding ears, and I finally pulled the trigger with Dr. Chiu-Collins. I couldn't be any happier that I chose her! She was AMAZING from beginning to end. She's not only personable & friendly, but also extremely educated & experienced. I had a great experience with her and would strongly recommend her to anyone interested in facial cosmetic surgery.

After waiting two months for an appointment, the doctor's assistant asked me if I would mind coming in earlier on the scheduled day to accomodate the doctor's schedule. (Perhaps she wanted to leave earlier that Friday?) If you want to wait two months to see a doctor, then be asked to change your schedule to accomodate the doctor, this could be the person for you.
