What People Say About Dr. Michael Collins, MD
Reply
Dr. Collins did an excellent job removing a tumor from my lung. I had no complications and it went exactly how he thought it would. I heard from others in the hospital that he is very particular, which was the case and is something I want in a surgeon.
