Dr. Collins' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Collins "Avid hockey player and skier."

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."
