Patient Comments (3)

I have been a patient of Dr. Collea's since 2009. He is exceptional. My mom also had breast cancer and had a different (also wonderful) oncologist. When my mom was dying, Dr. Collea told me what to expect and told me to call at any time if I needed help. He really is a wonderful person.

Dr. collea's selfless dedication to his patient is admirable. He takes time to explain things to his patient. He is very patient-takes time to listen to what the patient is asking and or saying. He is an incredible doctor and I would recommend him to other patients.
