My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Your vitality and vibrant experience of life are my goals as your private family physician. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care doctor, I have more time to develop close relationships with my patients. You will be nurtured and supported in a warm, welcoming, and unhurried environment that brings ease to your busy schedule. Understanding your priorities, your family, and community supports and stressors allows me to personalize your care. We will effectively partner to treat your current health challenges and work together to prevent new ones.

I am board certified in both Family Medicine and Integrative Holistic Medicine. My personal practice of yoga, mindfulness, and organic whole food nutrition teaching allows us to take your medical care outside of the exam room, providing you with tools and experiences of nourished living. My passion is to support your well-being using less medication when possible.

I offer expertise in pediatrics, elder-care, adult medicine, executive medicine, diabetes care and prevention, cardiovascular health, stress/mental health/addiction issues, and women’s health. We welcome you to our Nourish Wellness family, and look forward to being of service to you and your family.

About a year-and-a -half ago, not so long after I signed-up for the MDVIP program, I suffered an accidental blow to the head. It didn't seem serious at the time. About 30 days later, after experiencing intermittent dizziness, I decided to see Dr. Collins. She got me in right away, and sent me to have a CAT scan that same day. Later that day, well after business hours, the doctor phoned… See more

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.
