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.

Visit was for routine mole check which most people don’t do. The importance of preventative care should not be overlooked. Especially with rises in skin cancer. Dr. Collier has some very new products to share which I was thankful for. Will see her again next year.

Good doctor
October 10, 2017
I was told by the other doctor that this doctor is very nice and will take care of my needs while she's away. She was nice but kind of aloof or distant just because I'm not her patient. During my visit, I felt she was trying to get out of the room as soon as possible. I hope it wasn't because of our differences in race or whatever.
