I am not satisfied with Dr. McCollam for several of reasons. A few years later now and both conditions still didn't fully recover. I am still having pain in both areas. Dr McCollam gave me a steroid injection which did not work. The physical therapy didn't work. He was also impatient and rude during the appointments. He got up and left to treat another patient when I was the patient he was scheduled with. Find another doctor. This one is impatient and rude.

Absolutely incredible. I'm a right handed dentist who broke his right hand...not great for business. Dr. McCollam and his team were perfect -- I was able to get an appointment same-day on Saturday, and I was in surgery on Monday. I had virtually no pain after the surgery; I was in a removable splint in 2 weeks, and I barely missed work. 4 months out I'm like my old self again. The scar is tiny and diminishing quickly. I am so grateful to have landed in Dr. McCollam's highly skilled care.

Dr. McCollam is fantastic. He is very professional and has a great manner when relating to the patient. He explains procedures in a way that is easy to understand. I have 100% trust in his ability as a surgeon and I recommend him highly.

Had surgery on my hand to repair a broken finger that was severely misaligned. Professional service and results that count. Surgeon was experienced and understandably confident - he had done many of these before, you can tell. Now able to use my hand just like before (eating, IT, gardening, driving, DIY etc).

After suffering with both hand, I decided to do my right hand surgery with Carpal tunnel in 2015, Dr McCollam know what he is doing, I got so much relief from my pain I return in 2016 to do my left hand. Today I able to use both of my hands in ways I was unable to use in years without the pain and pins and needles, and numbness. Thank you so much. I would definitely recommend Dr McCollam to anyone suffering with this problem. Be positive, trust you doctor and God will do the rest.

Dr. McCollam was my second opinion (one-time visit) doctor. He wouldn't let me finish my sentences when I was describing the cause of injury and the treatments I had. He constantly cut me off and barely did examiniation to my pain areas. He did not explain to me what my x-ray results were, but kept telling me that he couldn't give me a precise diagnosis if I did not have x-ray taken there (the insurance company did not send him my previous x-ray). He cared more about the money than my recovery.
