Dr. Collins was very clear on the why of changing medication, and weaning me off a current medication. He answers questions clearly; has patience with me; is timely on app't time. I am comfortable messaging him any time I may need. His RN, Stacey, is excellent. Followed up with change of Rx to Pharmecy and to me; gave choices on dosing/form of strength of the tablets.

Due to other health care concerns, I needed to contact this doctor to get his advise on medications and the upcoming appointment. It was 10 days before I got an answer. I considered this unacceptable that someone on this doctors team could not get me an answer.

Dr. Collins was very well prepared, having reviewed the records that were sent to him. He did a thoughtful exam. He asked questions and listened. It usually seems like other doctors are running behind and in a hurry to get out of the room. Dr. Collins was not rushed. He spent a great deal of time. He proposed a tentative course of action pending results of blood work he ordered that day. I look forward to the next step in diagnosis and possible treatment. I feel that I am in good hands.

*Dr. Collins took an 1 hour consult/exam turned into a 2 hour session. Talked mostly, over and over again about things my symptoms could possibly be or could become, not really coming to a definitive diagnosis.
