Later that day, well after business hours, the doctor phoned… See more

I absolutely adore my doctor. Dr Collins has been an advocate for my husband and I for the past nine years. When we brought our three kiddos home from Ukraine, through International Adoption Dr Collins was an amazing cheerleader for us. When we brought our three kids home, she has shown care, compassion, and laughter with them.
She is one of my favorite people on the planet and her… See more
I love Dr Collins, she has been able to squeeze my visits in between my travel assignments for work and my overseas vacations. She has also worked with me to find healthy changes through diet and supplements to help me lose weight and decrease my HgA1C. She also encourages natural alternatives to medicine, if it has been proven effective.
Dr. Collins has been my physician for about 20 years. She is the most thorough and kind doctor I have ever had. During my yearly physical since she has been an MDVIP physician, she covers many more aspects of of my health than I have ever known before. Her thoroughness has helped me lower my cholesterol, helped me control my diet and lowered my blood sugar. I appreciate her care and concern… See more
Dr. Collins has helped my family through numerous medical problems, and always does followup. Best doctor in Indianapolis.
I could not find a better doctor. Very happy with Dr. Collins. I have been with her a lot of years I plan on being with her for ever. She has done so much for me.I just wish I could do something for her. I feel she truly cares about my health and will do all she can for me. I have full trust in her care. I can not thank her enough.
