Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Collins "I have been in practice in the northern Illinois area now for over 25 years.

I treat all patients as we would family members and realize that when someone seeks the services of an orthopedic surgeon they are usually in pain and/or are very apprehensive about their condition. We therefore take the time to listen to the patient's complaints and concerns."
