Dr. Katherine Collins of Kissel Eye Care should not be caring for any pediatric patients. She completely mismanaged my daughter’s eye condition. Thankfully both my husband and I work in healthcare and realized when she couldn’t fully answer my questions that something seemed off. We were lucky enough to find a pediatric ophthalmologist for a second opinion. Her treatment plan was not research based, my daughter’s eye glasses prescription was completely wrong, and Dr. Collins had no plan for follow up. Following her plan could have called progressive, irreversible vision loss for my daughter. I encourage any parent of a young child to see a pediatric ophthalmologist (MD or DO who has gone to medical school and completed both a residency in ophthalmology and fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology) and do not see Dr. Collins (a doctor of optometry requiring optometry school and no additional residency or fellowship training). She does not have the advanced training required to car

I would advise against doing any outside work for her without a sizable deposit. She doesn't always pay her bills and looks for any excuse to not remit full payment.

Dr. Collins was exceptional. She did not "rush" me through at all. She really took the time to make me feel comfortable, and when she was speaking with me she treated me very respectfully, unlike several other doctors I have had the miserable experience of meeting over the last several months. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and kind.
