Highly recommend Dr. Collins- professionalism and personal touch

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

26 Years Old, 32DDD+ Breast Reduction Surgery - Raleigh-Durham, NC

Both Dr. Collins, and Dr. Franklin have been extremely helpful and kind to me. They have always treated me with respect and have accommodated me if I needed to make an unplanned drop in for a post surgery question. In addition to the surgeons, the rest of the staff has been very helpful and professional. Chris Washick has been so helpful and kind in answering all of my questions and returning my phone calls. She has helped ease my mind on several occasions. I am very pleased with where I went for my surgery and would recommend them to anyone.
