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.

Already talked to her manager about it hopefully this doctor and staff who have a great paying job, benefits, and work for a great company understand what they have. It didn't seem like it to me. I was just a number to them, it felt like.

Excellent provider. Totally happy with my experience under her care.
October 25, 2018
They scheduled me an appointment without letting me know and I was out of town for that appointment. I guess I scheduled it a year ago but didn't mark my calendar. Luckily I didn't have to pay the $25.00 but I didn't get another appointment for about 6 weeks later. It was only for a "check up".
