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.

Dr. Collier is an excellent physician in dermatology - she actually listen to you, doesn't rush or seems that she's in a hurry to see her next patient/s. Make sure you understands what she's telling you and made sure you followed up at the reception desk for your next appt. I liked her - will only go to her for my follow up care.

January 13, 2020
Dr. Collier is an amazing doctor. The staff was able to schedule me in for an appointment in the early morning, and I appreciate that. They were also very welcoming when I first walked into the office. Dr. Collier listened to all my concerns and health history and was very thorough with her assessment and plan. She took her time with me even though I'm sure she had other patients waiting to be seen as well. Her assistants/staff were also very thorough in explaining my follow-up care. I left feeling hopeful and like I was taken care of!

This office doesn't have appointments within reasonable time. I had to wait over a month and a half for my initial visit. And then the doctor wants to see me back again. But her soonest appointment wasn't until 2.5 months away!!! How ridiculous is that.

I had the same Dermatologists for 20 years. After she retired I wondered if I could find another that came close to what I had. Well I did. Dr. Collier is the best. I highly recommend her. I look forward to her being my doctor for the next 20 years.
October 14, 2019
During a visit for another matter, Dr. Collier noticed a mole on my foot that stood out to her, did a biopsy, and it was melanoma. Because it was caught early, no treatment other than surgery was needed. She is responsible for detecting my cancer in an early stage and I am grateful to her!

The provider was different than my last provider. Ms Collier actually listened to my health history and gave me something I've never tried. I love how although it was my first time visiting her office, she made me feel cared for as if I was an existing patient and advised me to follow up with the office if I had any issues with anything she prescribed. I love that about a doctor. Someone who always reminds their patients that they're only a phone call away if anything goes wrong. Thank you Ms Collier.
