Just had a full eye exam with Doctor Collins. It was one of the best exams I've ever had. His quiet manner puts you to ease right away. His new site - Eyesite in Traverse Plaza - has the latest and greatest equipment. The selection of glasses is impressive - and large. I was very pleased and will return in a year for my next exam. No pressure to buy new glasses unless needed. Just a pleasant experience. If you are looking for an eye doctor, give him a try at 352-674-eyes.

Dr Collins did a very thorough exam and found that I needed a change in my eyeglass prescription.. He is sincerely interested in helping his patients and takes his time with them. Susie- the first person you meet at the office is very friendly and was very helpful with my frame selection. I had a problem with my glasses and Dr. Collins and his staff quickly resolved it. Jennifer was extremely helpful in fitting my glasses properly and seeing to it that everything was done correctly. Thank you

Dr. Paul is hands down the best eye doctor I've ever used. When you sit in his seat, you are not a customer, you are a friend. His staff is pleasant, professional, and extremely accommodating! My glasses broke on a Thursday in the late afternoon, and even though every place I called was closing or couldn't see me until the following week, Dr. Paul and his staff went above and beyond to accommodate me. In fact, they stayed open an extra hour and a

Finding new doctors when relocating can be frightening but a made a great choice when I scheduled with Dr. Collins. I recently had my 2nd annual visit, and decided after years of wearing glasses I wanted to try contacts. I was a very challenging patient but Dr. Collins was so patient and caring working with me until I had the perfect fit and was completely satisfied. His staff is courteous and professional. I would recommend this office to all.

Superb customer service. I am on vacation and broke both my primary and back up glasses. Susy was kind enough to repair both of them. I was very impressed by the office and their kind hospitality. Thanks so much! Don (Virginia Beach)

Dr. Collins is the consummate professional. He is very patient and addresses each concern with deliberate thought. He presents recommendations and solutions in an easily understood manner. He never rushes a patient and listens intently before speaking. He puts your mind at ease and has a positive outlook in prescribing a manner of treatment. I highly recommend him to all with eye issues.

Dr. Collins conducted a wellness exam that was one of the most complete I have ever had. When I had a question, he answered patiently and exactly. He spent time with the exam itself, and never acted rushed as so many medical persons seem to. My husband and I will definitely return to Dr. Collins whenever necessary! We haven't had any urgent appointments but I am sure he would be very competent. His staff, Sara and Scott, are excellent also!

Dr. Collins if very nice and tells you everything he is doing and WHY. To me this is very important, since most doctors just do the exam and tell you your vision numbers and if you have any disease. I opted for the optovue wellness exam to obtain a deeper look at my eye to have a baseline for future exams. This is a very detailed look at the back of the eye.

Pleasant, Knowledgeable, engaging, patient. Will go as deep into the explanation of a condition as you want to go. It's like sitting down and talking to a friend, not an impersonal Doctor.
