Dr. Collier’s passion for medicine originated at a young age. She is a twin and was fascinated by how her sister and she could look so much alike. Her quest for answers took her to medicine. During her dermatology rotation at the end of her fourth year of medical school, she worked in adult and pediatric dermatology clinics and saw firsthand how conditions like vitiligo, psoriasis, acne, keloids and skin cancer can be devastating to person’s health, self-image, and overall quality of life. “This motivated me to pursue a career in dermatology so I may treat these conditions and improve someone’s life,” she says. Dr. Collier looks forward to providing excellent medical care to the community members.

September 19, 2016
This provider offered the utmost in care. She explained thoroughly each step, continually asking how I was doing and even apologizing for any unpleasant, but necessary procedures. She was caring, personable, thorough and efficient at carrying out what needed to be done.
September 12, 2016
She did not seem interested in my concerns. My visit was maximum 5 minutes. She was unable to prescribe any cream or recommend anything over the counter. Would never to back to her and would definitely not recommend her to family and friends.
September 09, 2016
Keep up the good work.
September 08, 2016
It was amazing to me that I was referred to another doctor and that I must wait more than a month to get an appointment. I think that the slick operation and this survey is more for show than anything. The provider seemed somewhat rushed. I don't blame her and she did an adequate job of going through the motions in the consultation. It seemed like a minimalist approach she learned in some required time efficiency seminar. I would like to compliment reception for her patience in working through an insurance glitch with Blue Cross at the time of payment.
September 07, 2016
I'd go back to her. I should have spoken up more about my needs. But if she does not fulfill them the second time around I wouldn't go back to her.
September 07, 2016
Dr. Collier was very professional and she was very helpful to what I needed done. I would send anyone who needed a dermatologist to her without a doubt.
September 02, 2016
Worst provider ever. I never want to go back.
