Check in was easy staff was polite unfortunately they did a horrible job when making my appt if they would of asked the appropriate questions they'd of known that my situation is to severe to be handled by this Dr at this locatiob. Dr. Collins was rude and talked over me not with me.

I can see why he only has a 2 rating. No one will ever refer me to him again.

Dr Collins did laminotomy surgery on me on May 24th 2018. He removed part of a herniated disc at L4 L5 and also unwrapped a blood vessel that was around one of my nerves. I’m very happy that I got the surgery. He did a great job. I am 6 weeks out and feel pretty good. I am experiencing a little hip pain that i feel radiating in my knee and ankle. That is to be expected. I no longer have the horrible sciatic pain in my left leg/foot or the lower back pain. THANK YOU DR COLLINS
