Dr. Collins listens! Listening is a lost art in our society at present! We connected in realizing that in our different yet synonymous careers, listening is imperative as is sensitivity! If he had not been capable of listening to me, NO DOUBT, I would NOT be waltzing through life on my repaired knee! He is delightful, engaging, compassionate, and obviously ultimately experienced! He does what he does to allow people to feel better! I am so grateful to have my livelihood back! Thank you, Dr. Collins!!
