Dr Collins was great! She explained everything to me in a way I completely understood and I will be well prepared for my surgery. I felt very confident with the decision we had decided on for which procedure I will have. I didn't feel like she was on a time clock and had to get me out of the office in 15 min, she took her time and I was very reassured.

She is an amazing surgeon. She is very thorough and detailed oriented. She found 2 tumors in my bladder that were small yet they were malignant. She saved me from future chemo and radiation due to her awareness and thoroughness. Dr. Patel was able to get both tumors out with no further treatments at this time. I have Dr. Collins to thank for that.

Dr. Collins was very professional. I felt the team cared, but it had been a bit since I had completed the on-line survey which assisted in describing the different options. The decision on plan of care is not so straightforward, but I felt a bit pushed to come up with a plan. The resident had brought in a consent at the end of the visit. I was explained the procedure, but not so much the risks. I did receive the education in my portal following the appt and the materials provided me a much better picture of the procedure and risks. I consider myself pretty informed so am concerned about those not so informed about healthcare.
